Forged in the Barrens: Card List, Release Date, & Expansion Details
Hearthstone's 1st expansion in the Year of the Gryphon is Forged in the Barrens! A release date has yet to be announced, but the Bundle pre-orders are only available until the 22nd of March, which would indicate a March 23rd Release Date.
Gather your gear and hold fast to your ambition, newcomer. This is the Barrens. The road before us winds through vast, sun-scorched lands, bringing danger and discovery beyond imagination’s grasp. Thorned dens of bristling quilboar, rampaging tribes of furious centaur, and treetop nests of soaring harpies separate the champions from the weak. The Barrens are the anvil upon which the Horde as we know it was founded: A literal crossroads where the tauren, trolls, and orcs came together for the first time. Heroes are made here. Perhaps you, too, shall be Forged in the Barrens.
Forged in the Barrens marks the beginning of Phase One for the Year of the Gryphon. Players can expect several major updates and balance changes. In addition we'll see new Battlegrounds cards and heroes, a Seasonal event, Duels updates, a mini-set, the addition of a Core Set, and a brand new game mode: Classic!
