Hearthstone Tops 50 Million Registered Players

Hearthstone Tops 50 Million registered players according to the latest press release from Blizzard Entertainment. The Whispers of the Old Gods expansion pack was launched today and is live in all realms. Quickly play a few games to get 3 FREE card packs.

Whispers of the Old Gods™, Hearthstone’s third expansion, is now live in the Americas! Starting today, collect and do battle with 134 new twisted, tentacle-packed cards—including the legendary Old Gods themselves: C’Thun, N’Zoth, Yogg-Saron, and Y’Shaarj. This spine-tingling expansion turns everything players know about Hearthstone inside out. Familiar allies have been corrupted, new monstrosities have appeared, and the Old Gods of Azeroth have resurfaced—spreading their sinister influence and game-changing powers throughout the tavern.

C’Thun is especially eager to lend its awesome power to denizens of the tavern—players will receive this legendary Old God and two Beckoner of Evil cards when they open their first Whispers of the Old Gods card pack. Also, in celebration of the launch, everyone who logs in to Hearthstone will receive three Whispers of the Old Gods card packs free (for a limited time).

Whispers of the Old Gods card packs can be purchased individually or in discounted bundles from the in-game Shop for gold or real-world currency (same pricing as all other Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft card packs). Players now also have the chance to win Whispers of the Old Gods card packs as quest rewards, or prizes in the Arena, and can also craft cards from the expansion by using Arcane Dust, which is collected from disenchanting unwanted cards.
