HearthStone is Now in Closed Beta!

You can join the closed beta by opting-in on the Beta Profile page of your Battle.net account.

In continuing with their expansion of the Warcraft franchise, Blizzard will be coming out with a new card game called HearthStone: Heroes of Warcraft. The game has just entered its closed beta testing stage and is currently only available in the Americas.

During the beta you'll be able to get cards through the Practice mode, Play mode, or the Arena all for free of charge. You may also purchase card packs through Battle.net using either your Battle.net balance or one of the accepted payment methods.

To sign up, all you have to do is login to Battle.net, go to your Beta Profile page and opt-in to the HearthStone beta. Once completed, just run the System Check tool to upload your computer's stats and wait for your invite.

While it's unfortunate not everyone will immediately be able to take part in the closed beta, Blizzard hopes to launch beta testing in other regions after the initial beta launch in North America.
