What is Hearthstone Battlegrounds Duos?

Battlegrounds Duos involves you and a partner queuing up together against three other teams. These teams also have two players each. Each team shares life totals and can pass each other cards through the Portal. This requires one gold. The goal is to work together in tag-team fights and bring home the Battlegrounds Duos crown.

If you don't already have a friend to play Battlegrounds Duos with, then don't worry. When the new mode arrives, you can simply enter the match queue by yourself. The game then pairs you off with a random player. You can take the opportunity to make a new friend.
