Here’s a quick fact sheet regarding Hearthstone on iPad:
Your Gameâ€”Your Way
Hearthstoneâ€™s cross-platform compatibility empowers iPad, PC, and MacÂ® gamers to seamlessly play against each other. Your collection is safe and secure with Battle.netÂ®, so your cards will always be availableâ€”on any platform.
The iPad version of Hearthstone features the same intuitive interface and refined gameplay as the PC version, but now players can take their decks away from the desktop and to the couch, cafÃ©, airport, or anywhere with a WiFi or Internet connection.
Hearthstone kicks assÂ on every supported device: iPad 2, iPad (3rd generation), iPad (4th generation), iPad Airâ„¢, iPad miniâ„¢, and iPad mini with Retina.
How Do I Pay for the Things?
This is free-to-play our way. While many Hearthstone players have achieved the highest ranks without spending a dime, weâ€™ve made it easy for players to expand their collections regardless of platform.
Card pack purchases and Arena entries are made using whatever payment method you have attached to your Apple ID. Players can also continue to make purchases via Battle.net through the PC or Mac client.
Harness the Full Power of the Interwebs
Hearthstone on iPad requires a Wi-Fi or cellular connection to access your card collection.
Did Somebody Say Androidâ„¢ and iPhoneÂ®?
Thatâ€™s right, we said it! Weâ€™re bringing Hearthstone to Windows 8 Tablets, iOS phones, and Android devices. Weâ€™re targeting later this year for all that awesomeness.
Up for a Friendly Duel?
Chat with your Battle.net friends and challenge them on the iPad, no matter which platform they are playing on.
Blizzard Entertainment is pleased to announce that Hearthstoneâ„¢: Heroes of Warcraftâ„¢, its free-to-play digital card game, is now available on iPadÂ® in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, with the iPad App Storeâ„ release for the rest of the world coming soon.
â€œHearthstoneâ€™s player base has already grown to more than 10 million accounts registered following the official WindowsÂ® and MacÂ® release,* but we saw that a few people online were holding out for the iPad version,â€ said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. â€œInstead 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 itâ€™ll be available everywhere. The game is a natural fit for tabletsâ€”we encourage everyone to check it out on their couch, in their backyard, in a coffee shop . . . or anywhere else they take their iPads.â€ â€
In addition to Australiansâ€™, Canadiansâ€™, and New Zealandersâ€™ iPads, Hearthstone is available for Windows and Mac PCs globally, with iPad support for the rest of the world coming soon.
