Blizzard’s free to play online card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, is scheduled to arrive in Southeast Asian countries next week. The game, which borrows heavily from the now defunct World of Warcraft CCG, has slowly been gaining popularity since its official launch in March 2014.
The game already has some 10 million players world wide, and is considered as an example of how to make the free to play platform work. The matchmaking system pairs opponents with those of equal skill based on your current hero, therefore switching heroes will not throw you into the deep end while you are still learning how it works.
Hearthstone is currently available on the iPad in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand; with the game expected to arrive in the Southeast Asian region next week. The PC and Mac versions are also available worldwide, while Android, iPhone and Windows tablet versions are currently in the works.
