iPad version of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft goes global
The iPad version of Blizzard's card game <A href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hearthstone-heroes-warcraft/id625257520">Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft</a> is now available at App Stores worldwide. The app was actually released for the iPad earlier this month, but only in the form of a soft launch at the Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand App Stores. Mac and PC versions of Hearthstone have been available for some time.<br /><br />The game is similar in concept to Magic: The Gathering, in that players duel an opponent using cards representing spells and minions. Hearthstone tends to be faster-paced however, and gamers can sync decks between the iPad and desktop versions via Battle.net. Basic play against human and AI opponents is free; gamers can optionally pay for card bundles, as well as access to a special Arena mode, where prizes are handed out.<br />
<br />
The iPad app requires iOS 5 or later. Arena admission is $2, while card bundles can cost anywhere between $2 for two to $50 for 40.<br />
