Blizzard has begun rolling out the iPad version of its Warcraft-themed Hearthstone collectible card game, starting with Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The company promised that other regions will get the app soon.

Update 4/16:  Hearthstone for iPad is now available around the world.

After an extended beta period, Hearthstone officially launched on PC and Mac last month and has since grown to over 10 million registered accounts. Blizzard also has plans to release iPhone and Android versions.


Hearthstone is free to play with in-app purchases for card packs and entrances into a drafting mode called the Arena.

I’ve been obsessed with Hearthstone for a couple months now, and the iPad version will make it even easier to get a fix. For those of us outside the lucky launch countries, we’ll just have to wait a little longer before we can duel on the go.
