Great news, everyone!
Last night, the hardest-working man in social media (that I know personally, at least), Stan Faryna, confirmed that Hearthstone is now available in the iOS App Store – EVERYWHERE! That’s right – you can get Hearthstone on your iPad, without having to do anything crazy! Go get it FREE.. Really.. Do it now!
…Still haven’t downloaded it? Maybe the Official Hearthstone iPad Trailer will motivate you:
UPDATE: The iPad app is almost exactly the same as the PC and Mac game. Multiplayer is completely cross-platform, unlike Marvel Puzzle Quest.. So you don’t need to grind on every version.
The Hearthstone iPad soft launch ended in the blink of an eye. It should be no surprise by now. Blizzard has been accelerating their timetables with Hearthstone. Just look at how fast the game went from public beta to full launch (though, arguably, that was a soft launch itself). Once Blizzard starts teasing things and getting more specific with features, we know they’re right around the corner; otherwise, they tend to be very vague.. Or hire cute girls, which we’re fine with, either way.
We suspect that the iOS app will increase the user base twofold, maybe more, in as little as three months. I know tons of my friends have been waiting for mobile platform support because, let’s be honest: we don’t always want to sit down in front of a monitor or TV for hours at end, especially if that is what we do for work.
We’re excited to have more Hearthstone friends so don’t be shy – add us on BNet! Personally, I am particularly curious to meet more women on Hearthstone (not for hook-ups, I promise) because, let’s face it: most dudes can’t hold a decent or deep conversation. I love my bros but… Yeah, many of us are lacking intellectual appeal.
Some people may still be sitting this one out. They’re likely the folks that don’t like PvP or judge things by their metaphorical covers. More single-player content is coming with Curse Of Naxxramas and that will certainly be the big launch we have been waiting for.. But the game is fun right now.. Come join us!
I will say this: the iPad app is not without it’s flaws. I have tinkered with it for over a week and find that I get disconnected or the app crashes randomly. Quite a lot of my losses have come from that. It seems the app is unforgiving if you have spotty connectivity. Regardless, I love Hearthstone and wholeheartedly recommend it to you, our friends and fellow geeks.
Now git off yer bum and download Hearthstone already! Did we mention it’s FREE?
