Hearthstone leaps onto smartphones

    
21
Today, Hearthstone made the jump to its smallest platform yet: the smartphone. After releasing the popular card game on the PC, Mac, and tablet, Blizzard announced that Hearthstone was finally ready to debut on iPhone and Android devices.

The new version has one important tweak from it’s larger brethren in the form of “an all-new intuitive interface hand-crafted for the mobile experience.” To tempt players into checking the phone version out, the studio said that anyone playing a game on it will receive a free classic card pack.

Hearthstone has been in the news quite a lot lately, particularly with the launch of its Blackrock Mountain solo adventure pack.

melissamcdon rlloyd3 I actually had an Android phone before the iPhone. The original Droid RAZR was an overall bad experience, so an iPhone 5 was welcoming…but now my new Galaxy is miles ahead.

melissamcdon Which may suck at first but the tech will only increase into the 2020s. Looking forward to gaming on my ‘Google Glass’ 2.0(+).

Microsoft primarily, but also Apple, Google, Samsung are pushing to a “convergence” of one-UI-one-experience across all platforms.   Having a mobile or small-screen (we might as well just call it that) version of your MMO is probably going to be seen as essential by the end of this decade.   “One game, one experience, across all devices…”
It’s coming.

FYI Android users, it’s ~619 MB download.  But I am sure you all knew it was going to be a big install. :D
