Patch 20.2, which is set to release on May 4, will introduce Battle-Ready Decks, an experimental form of deck that is meant for new and returning players who wish to play a particular class in the game.
In the patch notes, Blizzard said: “For the first time ever, we’ll be offering curated decks optimized for the most recent expansion through the web and in-game shops.
“When these Battle-Ready Decks become available, you’ll be able to add a complete deck from the class of your choice to your permanent Collection.”
According to Blizzard, each Battle-Ready Deck is handcrafted using data captured across “hundreds of thousands of play sessions” to ensure players will obtain a good deck.
It’s been revealed that Battle-Ready Decks will be available for three weeks for $19.99 (£14) when it becomes listed on the store and will be limited to one per player account.
Along with a new deck type, Blizzard also revealed a preview of the next major Hearthstone Battlegrounds update called Quilboar.
The Quilboar update will include the new Quilboar minion type, 17 new minions, three new heroes, as well as a new mechanic called Blood Gems a spell that gives a friendly minion a buff of +1/+1.
With the Battlegrounds update, Quilboar will show up in every match until the next major content patch, just like the previous additions.
