To do so, though, you'll need to complete two Battlegrounds games. That seems like a pretty easy feat to achieve. When you do, you'll also get to see what the most recent update has in store. It's intended to fix a lot of bugs that have been present since launch. So if this is your first time with Hearthstone Battlegrounds, it should be quite a pleasurable experience. \n \nThe great thing about this game is there isn't any price barrier to entry. It's a completely free game to experience, where you'll get the chance to choose one of many iconic heroes and duke it out with seven other players. A huge aspect of this title is putting the perfect team of minions together. After every match, you'll get to change their stats and switch their positions based on your tactical strategy. \n \nOnce everything is in place, you can see amazing battles play out in front of your very eyes. Blizzard did a phenomenal job at including a lot of variety as far as the battle sequences, which makes the game dynamic on many fronts. Seeing the action firsthand just immerses you in the lore and unique aspects of your selected hero and minions. \n \nIf you want to brush up on the game's rules before hitting the open beta hard, you absolutely can by visiting the game's official page.
