‘Forged in the Barrens’ rumored to be the newest Hearthstone expansion

Forged in the Barrens, new Hearthstone expansion

According to burgeoning rumors and evidence of leaks from foreign country Hearthstone forums (as of this writing, the Chinese and German forums have both been verified) and the Blizzard Play Store, the upcoming Hearthstone expansion (slated to be revealed at BlizzConline 2021) will be entitled, “Forged in the Barrens.”

The Barrens is a vast, iconic leveling zone from World of Warcraft for Horde players between the levels of 10-50 and features myriad prominent locales, such as The Crossroads, The Wailing Caverns, the goblin city of Ratchet, and the thorn-covered, quillboar-infested Razorfen Kraul, the latter of which was already hinted at through official Hearthstone social media with a teaser containing the description, “Danger lurks amongst the thorns and thistles…”

Inquiring Reddit users, such as Redditor puskasm, discovered further confirmation of the new “Forged in the Barrens” expansion on the Blizzard Playstore, with advertisements for the Forged in the Barrens Mega Pack Bundle, a new card back and imagery of a brand new Druid Hero portrait — the Tauren Archdruid of Thunder Bluff, Hamuul Runetotem — seen therein. (The Hearthstone Forged in the Barrens Mega Bundle is slated to include 80 packs, 5 Golden packs, a Battlegrounds Pass and the Hamuul Runetotem Hero Portrait for $80.)

Indications that the upcoming Hearthstone expansion will be named “Forged in the Barrens” were further evinced in the title screen being shown on the Chinese Hearthstone forums (via Reddit).

What new Barrens-themed cards do you expect to see in the upcoming “Forged in the Barrens” expansion (if these rumors are substantiated)? Do you think we’ll see more Tauren-based cards to accompany the new Druid hero, Hamuul Runetotem? Will we see more greedy goblin minions from Ratchet? What about bosses from the Wailing Caverns (Lady Anacondra, Lord Serpentis) and Razorfen Kraul (Hunter Bonetusk, Warlord Ramtusk)? And last, but certainly not least, will there be a card focused around Mankrik’s Wife? Or the infamous Barrens Chat?

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
