Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, its free-to-play digital card game, is now now officially out of beta and ready for interested gamers to play. The free-to-play virtual card game allows players to build decks centered around one of the nine Warcraft character classes.

Diablo III: Reaper Of Souls Crusader Highlighted In Video
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has released a new video showcasing features from the upcoming Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion for the popular action RPG. The new footage focuses on the Crusader class and its evil smiting abilities. Reaper of Souls is scheduled to launch March 25.

Among the small townships of Sanctuary, rumors have surfaced of a battle-scarred warrior hailing from the eastern swamplands of Kehjistan. Clad in impenetrable armor and wielding a massive shield, it is said he is a member of a legendary holy order—one of the pious followers of Zakarum who have vowed to defend their faith against corruption and decay.

Brutally culling his foes with hardened steel and incinerating light, this mysterious wanderer has left a bloody westbound trail in his wake, signalling a slow, but steady advance towards the cursed town of New Tristram. . .

Meet the Crusader—the new hero class in Reaper of Souls™ who will forever shift the balance of power in Sanctuary.

Learn about the origins of the Crusaders, their prowess with flail and shield, and the divine favor that empowers them to unleash the fury of the Heavens in our all-new video. Then, get ready to launch a crusade against the Lords of the Burning Hells, and even Death itself, on the March 25!
