Now you can try Hearthstone before you sign up.
Bothe Android and iOS users in China have just received a patch that enables players to start the game without being signed into a Battle.net account.
This is good news for those who wish to see the game in even more hands. The entire process of a Battle.net account and all the seriousness that comes with it (but seriously, use two-factor authentication) is a little daunting for people who only play on their mobile devices.
Just a few days ago, another China exclusive patch looked to set up the framework for an external patching process on Android phones that wouldn't require players to redownload the entire game with every patch.
