Log on to Hearthstone tomorrow and you'll be gifted half a dozen free packs from the game's most recent expansion, The Boomsday Project.

A new set of quests will also award up to 500 gold for a further five card packs.

The giveaways are in celebration of Hearthstone hitting 100 million players, a milestone announced by Blizzard last night. That's not 100 million active players, mind, although the game is clearly still very popular.

Blizzard figures state an average of 2655 real-world Hearthstone Fireside Gathering meetups take place every month around the world - events organised to play the game in bars, student unions, gaming shops and the like where you can battle those in the same room.

It is some positive news for Blizzard after a bruising weekend at BlizzCon after an unprecedented fan backlash at the reveal of a Diablo mobile game.
