Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is Now Available on Android Tablets in the US (UPDATED)

on December 16, 2014 9:23 PM

Blizzard started to slowly rollout its digital collectible card game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft for Android Tablets in select countries yesterday, starting with Canada, New Zealand and Australia. As NeoGaf user Vanillalite has pointed out, if you are in the United States you can now join in on the fun as the game has made its way to the US Google Play Store.

As of writing, you can access the game on the US by following the direct link to the page. The game currently doesn’t show up by searching the Play Store app, but can be queued to download to your select Android device directly from the webpage so long as it has a Wi-Fi connection. I have successfully downloaded the game and I’m presently running it on my Nexus 7 (2013) Android tablet, which you can see in a photo below.

Remember that the Android version of Hearthstone is only compatible on devices that have a screen that is 6-inch display and be running Android version 4.0 or later. Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is available to play for free now on PC, iPad and Android tablets, with iPhone and Android phone versions set to release sometime next year.

Update: Blizzard has updated its announcement post about the Android tablet version of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is now available globally for everyone to enjoy. While you may not be able to find the game by searching for it via the Google Play Store app (I cannot find it via searching on my devices), you still can still get access to it by using the webpage link to the app provided above to queue your download to your device.
