A survey being sent to beta testers of online collectible card game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft has hinted at possible future additions Blizzard is considering for the title.
Hearthstone is still in closed beta, with an open beta expected before the end of the year. During BlizzCon 2013, the company said it would be bringing card expansions and a PvE adventure mode to the game, and the company will shortly release a new patch.
New features in the game could include replays, in-depth statistics, and raids, however.
One question in the survey asks beta testers what new features they’d like to see in the game, with the following options available:
Friends list tie-in with social media (Facebook, Twitter, Kakao Chat, etc.)
Set up multiple profiles within one Hearthstone account.
Raids (cooperative play vs. a single, powerful boss).
More in-depth display of achievements and statistics.
Recorded replay of your last match.
Chat channels beyond the emotes.
“Observer” mode, allowing you to view live battles.
Additional, in-depth tutorials.
The ability to reorder cards in your hand.
Ability to replay the tutorial.
A “play again” option after a battle has concluded.
A second questions asks players if they’d like to pay for the following additions to the game:
New art for each hero class.
Additional deck slots.
New card sets.
New card back artwork.
Additional in-game emotes.
New themed battle boards.
Alongside the game’s imminent open beta for PC and Mac, an iOS version of Hearthstone is expected to launch in 2014.
