Players excited to get their hands on the new cards need not wait that long, however. In the lead up to the eventual launch, there will be plenty of events that will dole out over 500 Mega Bundle codes. In addition, Blizzard will reward the community with Twitch subscriptions, and more Theorycrafting livestreams to educate the player base.
Starting on March 22, players can start putting together their own Forged in the Barrens decks and share them with a selection of Hearthstone streamers. Once the streamers have given these decks the runover, theorycrafting streams will begin on March 23. The next four days will be all about Mega Bundle giveaways on both Reddit and Twitch.
During the weekend before the March 30 release date for Forged in the Barrens, players can start opening the new expansion packs at private Fireside Gathering events. You can also start experiencing the new cards at Fireside Brawls.
There will be no restrictions on class or duplicates in the Forged in the Barrens No Cards Barred! Brawl, so get ready to go crazy. The other brawl, A Recipe for Tenacity, will include new deck recipes from the upcoming set for players to experiment with.
As for the Fireside Gatherings, since the pandemic is still a thing, players will be able to participate in the pre-release weekend fun by registering for one-person events. This way, you can open up Forged in the Barrens card packs the weekend before the actual release date.
Hearthstone‘s Forged in the Barrens expansion will launch on March 30 with 135 new cards focused on the Horde. The new Core sets will also come into play.
