Blizzard Entertainment have announced a new mode for Hearthstone at BlizzCon 2019, Hearthstone Battlegrounds.
The new 8-player auto-battling mode sees players choosing one of 24 heroes, and drafting minions into their deck at the start of the game, and between rounds.
Blizzard also announced that “Due to the nature of an 8-player match with tons of attacks, effects, and animations triggering at the same time” the expansion will not work on mobile devices with less than 2 GB of RAM.
You can find the full run-down on the rules here.
Heathstone’s Battlegrounds will enter open beta on November 12th, with those who acquired the Descent of Dragons pre-purchase bundle, BlizzCon Attendees, or BlizzCon Virtual Ticket holders gaining Early Access on November 5th.
Hearthstone is available now on Windows PC, Mac OS, Android, and iOS.
