The Hearthstone Open Beta Test is now live in Europe, Blizzard has announced.

This means that anyone yet to gain a place in the Closed Beta Test can now gain access simply by downloading the game.

"If you didn't get the chance to participate in the Hearthstone Closed Beta Test, you can now download the game," wrote Blizzard.

The firm added: "We have no plans to perform any more card wipes, so feel free to amass your collection and play against your friends."

Remember that the Open Beta is still not a final release and, should demand prove higher than expected, Blizzard may have to close beta activations until it is ready to take on more players.

You can download the Hearthstone Beta Client (EU) here.
