Today, Blizzard announced a slew of changes that will be coming to Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft with patch 2.7 in mid-June. Chief among them is a new game mode, Tavern Brawl, which pits players against each other in a matches with different rules, such as:
One week might feature preset decks, while another week could have you crafting a brand new Tavern Brawl deck following specific guidelines, while others might offer buffs to specific minion types—who knows!
Tavern Brawls will be free initially, with players being rewarded with a pack when they go live; there's no word on what the cost for playing in a Tavern Brawl will be after this grace period.
The announcement also hints at new alternate heroes coming up, for the hunter and mage classes, and you'll also be able to select different card backs for different decks.
