Hearthstone for iPad now available in U.S.

Hearthstone is now available on iPad, Blizzard has announced. Your progress from the PC version carries over, and trying it out on iPad will earn you a free pack of cards.

Update: The Hearthstone Twitter account has reaffirmed that Android and iPhone versions of Hearthstone are in the works and planned for later this year.

Original story: Blizzard teased us with a Canadian release a few weeks ago, but now Hearthstone on iPad is available for the rest of North America. This joins the recent news of the Curse of Naxxramas expansion, which is set to hit PC and iPad simultaneously.

Blizzard announced that any progress made on the PC version will transfer over to the iPad, and by giving it a try you'll get a pack of cards once you complete the tutorials and a single play or arena session.

Pick it up on the App Store now.

      Oh goody. Maybe there will be some new players I can actually beat.

        I'm going to download it and hide in my office for awhile here shortly. I believe I will be easy fodder.

      Good time to start ranking up with an influx of new players. Although, everyone I know that wanted the game on iPad got it asap when the test launch happened.

      I'm still not seeing it in the App Store. Unless I'm missing something.

        Click on the App Store link in the article from your iPad and it'll take you to the listing.

      Been using it for a week now. Seems solid but I've had some disconnects randomly while playing.

      Played around with it this afternoon and its pretty solid. The load time of the app though... Ouch! I'm running it on an iPad 4 and I also ran it on an iPad mini and the load time of the app seemed the same. Loooong stalls between different phases of boot and sometimes it almost looks like the app closes/crashes.

        I haven't had that experience. Runs damn near the same as on my PC/Mac.

          once it finishes booting up it's fine, this is just first launch

        iPad air runs flawlessly. The initial load was bearable (maybe 10 seconds tops).

        I'm really impressed with the game overall.

        I had the same experience on my Mini. But, with Blizz it's hard to know when the app is trying to phone home to validate something and it's just waiting in the queue. I see this a log when loading a multiplayer map in sc2; like it's having to wait for every player to do their phone home check before the map can continue loading. Except with HS it's only the initial loading of the game.
