Blizzard announces a new CCG 'for everyone'

Blizzard has today lifted the lid on Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, "a fast-paced strategy card game for everyone." You hear that, gay people who want to get married? You too can join in on the fun! 

Hearthstone hopes to jump on the free-to-play market. It'll cost nothing to boot up a game on Battle.net and use some pre-built decks, but you can pony up the dough in order to obtain new cards -- or spend time crafting or claiming them. It's coming to PC and Mac first, with an iPad release planned later.

You can apply for the beta on the game's official site, and check out the trailer below. What do you reckon? Potentially fun distraction, or a silly cash-in? I suppose it could happily be both.
