Hearthstone is now available in the Canadian, Australian, and New Zealand app stores.
While yesterday Blizzard dropped some pretty funny April Fools Day news, today it is dropping some pretty awesome genuine news. Hearthstone, the World of Warcraft-themed online card game, is now available on the iPad in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, with the rest of the world to follow "soon".
"Hearthstone's player base has already grown to more than 10 million registered accounts following the official Windows and Mac release, but we saw that a few people online were holding out for the iPad version," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment.
Canadians, Australians, and New Zealanders need only to navigate to the Apple iPad app store to download the client.
"Instead of calling those folks up individually, we figured we might as well let everyone know that the global iPad rollout for Hearthstone has begun, and pretty soon it'll be available everywhere. The game is a natural fit for tablets-we encourage everyone to check it out on their couch, in their backyard, in a coffee shop... or anywhere else they take their iPads," said Morhaime.
You'll need an internet connection to play the game though, so you better hope that the coffee shop you're using has a wi-fi connection.
