An update has come to Hearthstone’s new game mode, adding some extra chaos—and a few new Heroes— to Battlegrounds! Jump into the Beta to test out the latest challengers.

NEW CHALLENGERS

Sindragosa, Elise Starseeker, Brann Bronzebeard, and Sir Finley Mrrgglton are the newest Heroes to enter the Battlegrounds—each one with a new hero power to help you push toward a first-place finish.

 

  • Sindragosa – Stay Frosty: At the end of your turn, Frozen minions get +1/+1.
  • Elise Starseeker – Lead Explorer: When you upgrade Bob’s Tavern, get a Recruitment Map.
  • Brann Bronzebeard – Battle Brand: When you play a Battlecry minion, give a random friendly minion +1/+1.
  • Sir Finley Mrrgglton – Power Up!: Give a random friendly minion +1/+1. After you sell a minion, refresh this.

To make way for these new challengers, we’re saying goodbye to King Mukla, Giantfin, Millificent Manastorm, and Lich Baz’hial… for now! These Heroes may return to Hearthstone: Battlegrounds in a future update.

 

FUTURE UPDATES

More additions to Battlegrounds are planned for early December! We’ll continue to see minion and Heroes balance updates, new rotating Heroes, two new minions in the works, and a first iteration of the Stats feature. Details to come soon!
