And so I got Beta access to Blizzards newest game, Hearthstone.. And as always, I play it on Linux…


Download installer from you Blizzard Battle.net account.

mkdir /home/username/Games/Heartstone/
WINEPREFIX=/home/username/Games/Heartstone/.wine winecfg

In winecfg, override “dbghelp”-> disabled and “msvcp100”-> Native under Libraries.

then run:
WINEPREFIX=/home/username/Games/Heartstone/.wine winetricks wininet

And then install:

WINEPREFIX=/home/username/Games/Heartstone/.wine wine Hearthstone-Beta-Setup-enGB.exe


Game installed, and running beautifully.. Good job Blizzard.. Again.. next best thing to native Linux games, are Windows games that just runs..

And I must say, that Hearthstone is also a very nice game so far…
