Blizzard’s Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft trading card game now in open beta

Hearthstone header

Blizzard’s trading card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, is now in open beta in North America, though the company promises to bring the open beta to other regions “within the next few days.” The game was first announced at PAX East in March 2012 and entered a closed beta in August. Now anyone can give Hearthstone a try by downloading the game here.

“Please be aware that if smoke starts curling out of our servers due to unexpectedly high demand to play Hearthstone, we may have to temporarily disable open beta account activations for a time until we’re ready to take on more players.”

Blizzard says it’s done wiping the game so players can permanently amass a collection of cards to challenge their friends. The company also notes that if there is too much interest in the open beta and their servers become flooded with new users, it will temporarily suspend open beta invites until the company is ready to receive more players. “Please be aware that if smoke starts curling out of our servers due to unexpectedly high demand to play Hearthstone, we may have to temporarily disable open beta account activations for a time until we’re ready to take on more players,” writes Blizzard in a blog post.

The company has also announced its intention to bring the game to Android and iPhone later this year, which shouldn’t be much of a problem since the game’s system requirements are relatively low for the PC and Mac.
