A new Hearthstone animated short released during Gamescom celebrates the game in a fantastic way: with a song.
The trailer begins with a young girl wandering aimlessly in a snowy forest as a Blizzard beats her back. She comes across a Hearthstone box sitting in the snow with a small mouse sitting atop it. The moment she touches it, she is transported to a magical tavern where Wizards, Orcs, Goblins, and humans alike all gather together to enjoy a game of Hearthstone.
It’s a great way to represent the joys of the game, while also touching on the pitfalls of losing a close match. Hearthstone has been incredibly successful since its launch in 2014, drawing in fans of Warcraft and those who had never even touched the series. After its initial success, a number of other digital TCGs sprung up in its wake, trying to take advantage of the popularity.
It remains a smash hit, constantly being streamed on Twitch, and bringing thousands of players back to the tavern each time a new expansion hits.
Hearthstone is available now on PC, Mac, and IOS and Android devices.
