Blizzard has announced that the open beta for its online trading card game, Hearthstone, has officially kicked off. Players are invited to download the new client and to check out some of the new features included for the open beta.
If you haven’t already checked out what’s new with Hearthstone these days, here are some of the latest features that have gone into the game during our closed beta test:
- New Ranked Play Mode – Ranked play has a new face, with month long seasons and the goal of reaching Rank 1, The Innkeeper
- Players Near Me Feature – You can now opt-in to seeing other Hearthstone players on your local network in your friends list
- Recently Played Opponent Feature – Your friends list now displays the last person you played against that isn’t already in your Friend’s list, so that you can friend them for future duels
