Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Open Beta Has Begun

Blizzard gave us a nice surprise today! Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft has entered open beta.

Today is the day! If you are one of the unlucky ones to not be invited to the closed beta test of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, then listen up! After months of speculation, the open beta has officially begun. You can download both the PC and Mac clients on the official Hearthstone beta page.

What's different about the open beta? For starters, we can expect less dramatic card changes. This means that those who fancy themselves as expert deck builders will not have to worry about their decks becoming obsolete due to changing stats. We can also expect that most of the bugs are fixed, with only a few stragglers left.


Hearthstone is an amazing card game and it will be exciting to play against all the new players who are getting used to the over 300 cards. However, please be aware that this is still a beta and some bugs may still exist.

Right now, it appears the open beta is only for North America, but Blizzard has stated that it will be moving to other regions over the next few days.

So get downloading already, and I’ll see you in Hearthstone!
