Hearthstone Celebrates 70 Million Players With Free Card Packs

Blizzard's collectible card game hits another milestone.

Blizzard Entertainment announced today that Hearthstone has reached 70 million registered players following the release of the new Journey to Un'Goro expansion. In addition, the game has reached a current player peak. The company did not specify the number of concurrent players or the day it reached this peak.

"It's a good thing that there's always room for one more, because the tavern has now welcomed over 70 Million players! On top of that, with Journey to Un'Goro, Hearthstone had more players playing together on the same day-around the whole world-than at any point in its history!" said Blizzard in a statement.

To celebrate the milestone, Blizzard is offering three free Journey to Un'Goro card packs for anyone who logs into the game between now and the end of May.

The Journey to Un'Goro expansion launched at the beginning of April 2017, offering big changes to previous decks and some new mechanics.
