Gamescom 2017: Hearthstone’s Hearth and Home animated short

    
9
As part of its Gamescom presentation today, Blizzard has just revealed a new “musical animated short” for card battler Hearthstone. It centers on the backstory Harth Stonebrew’s tavern, and it’s Blizzard, so it’s cute all on its own.

“The Tavern is a warm and welcoming place full of laughter, camaraderie, and good-natured competition, and home to a charming cast of characters assembled from every corner of Azeroth. This includes vibrant and (mostly) friendly folks such as Malto, the kindly old mage; and Sarge, the Tavern’s resident mouse. The personalities in this ethereal inn draw inspiration from the many types of Hearthstone players who enjoy Hearthstone in real life. Whether they’re seasoned pros or just getting into the game like the young protagonist Ava, there’s a place in the Tavern for everyone.”

Expect more shorts and comics coming, Blizz says. We just want to see more singing gobbos. Enjoy!

trailer: heart and home
game: greed and nausea

they should make a musical about people buying hilariously overpriced packs of random cards for outrageous prices that make zero sense because there’s no actual limited supply for virtual goods unlike with physical products

with heartstone blizz makes wotc (a company that has thrived on the notion of artificial scarcity) look good and consumer friendly in comparison

First, video game companies have to stop this habit of making first seconds in the videos sound bombastic, i learned my lesson, i always lower the sound for the first 3-5 seconds … sigh!

Blizzard animation team should make feature films, come on guys, your work is so good, these shorts just prove you can do more, animation movies for Starcraft? Diablo? and Warcraft of course.

Warcraft might have actually been a good movie if their internal team made it.
