Hearthstone rolling out to iPad in some regions today

HearthstoneHearthstone rolling out to iPad in some regions today photo



If you've been happily lapping up all the Hearthstone goodness since its inception, you've probably been looking forward to the iPad version to take the show on the road. Well, my United States brethren, keep waiting! Today, the Hearthstone iPad rollout begins with Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, with other regions to follow.

It's not all bad. When we get it here (and everywhere else) expect to have the same features from the PC versions handy, just a little less tactile. Anywhere you can get online you can log in, collect cards, play against your friends, or access Play or Arena modes. What's more, your user data and card collection is shared across all of your devices, so you don't have to worry about making progress at home only to have to start over on the go.

Blizzard explains the idea behind launching Hearthstone in a limited number of regions at a time is to "focus on the end-to-end player experience" and not because they just want us to be miserable, also adding that there isn't too much longer to wait before more of us can get our grubby little paws on it. That's great, because my Pokémon cards are getting a little bent and I need something else for on-the-go domination.

Can Twitch work together to play Hearthstone?

I'm over Twitch Plays Pokemon, but it was fun while it lasted for me. And that's not to say I'm bored of the concept of people collaborating to play a game via live stream, generally speaking. Some will be hits, some will be ...more
