The animated short for Hearthstone shows the magic of the game
Blizzard has a fable for lore and stories and likes to put in tons of details and thoughts. It reflects in every game they create even in rather simple ones like Hearthstone. A favourite way to show it is animated shorts and Blizzard creates more and more of them. You can already see a lot about Overwatch, and now, Hearthstone got one too at Gamescom 2017. It has a Disney/Pixar feel to it and shows the journey of a little girl. She finds by chance Harth Stonebrew’taverne and gets to know the magic of Hearthstone.
Blizzard said about the trailer:
“Harth Stonebrew’s tavern is a special place. If you strolled among the packed tables and raucous laughter on a busy night, you’d overhear stories of exhausting travel and perilous adventure—and of lucky voyagers somehow finding the tavern just when they needed it the most.
For the colourful cast of characters who call it home, the tavern is more than just a place to put up their feet or toss back a tasty brew. For them, it’s where the magic of hospitality fills the air, and good times are shared by everyone who happens through the door. In the tavern, the joy of the unexpected or the thrill of competition can be found at any hour. ”
