Hearthstone Android, iPhone, ‘Curse of Naxxramas’ Release Date: Exclusive Card Back with Warlords of Draenor Collector’s Edition

A new card back will be made available for Hearthstone players.

Blizzard announced that the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Warlords of Draenor, will be released on November 13, 2014.

In the limited release “Collector’s Edition” of the game, Blizzard will be giving players a unique Warlords of Draenor card back.

The card back looks like its made of rusted orc axe steel and shield wood, and appears to have glowing vents to boot.

The Warlords of Draenor Collector’s Edition doesn’t come cheap though. GameStop is taking pre-orders of the Collector’s Edition, and it cost $89.99, as compared to $49.99 for the Standard Edition and $69.99 for the Digital Deluxe Edition.

Blizzard is only releasing the Hearthstone card back with the Collector’s Edition, however, and this could put a serious crimp into Hearthstone card back collectors.

There are currently 9 card backs available, not inclusive of the Warlords of Draenor card back, and the Icecrown card back, which will only be handed out to players who achieve Rank 20 by the end of Ranked Season 5.

Blizzard announced that they will be releasing Hearthstone for Android and the iPhone later in 2014 back in April.

The Android version of the game is particularly tricky to get right, given the range of Android devices in the market.

Jason Chayes, the production director for Hearthstone, told Game Spot: “Just the breadth of different screen resolutions, different device capabilities–all of that is stuff we have to factor in to make sure the interface still feels good.”
