EA soft-launches The Sims Mobile, Honor of Kings goes West as Strike of Kings, and Hearthstone's resurgence

EA soft-launches The Sims Mobile, Honor of Kings goes West as Strike of Kings, and Hearthstone's resurgence

When you think CCG, your mind probably jumps straight to Hearthstone, Blizzard's masterful digital card game based on its Warcraft IP.

It's three years old now, so we decided to take a look at how it was performing on mobile at this point in its life - something it seems our readership was also interested in, as it was our most read article of last week.

Second on the Hot Five list is the news that Tencent's Honor of Kings is finally making its way West, only it's been renamed Strike of Kings and now includes Batman as a playable character.

Sims, poker and super mobile gamers

Third up is the soft-launch of EA's next big mobile game, The Sims Mobile, which looks like it has a lot more in common with its PC counterpart than The Sims FreePlay.

And finally, we chat to Frank Gibeau about how Zynga Poker has continued to survive almost ten years after first launching, and Verto Analytics says that the "super mobile gamer" is a 39-year old woman who loves Pokemon GO.

Ric likes to read epic poems and watch classic films to hide the fact he plays way too many games. The facade has thus far not been very effective.
