Throughout its history, Hearthstone has built up a tradition of announcing new content with songs. The Whispers of the Old Gods reveal, for example, featured a creepy tune, while One Night in Karazhan had a showy, disco-inspired track.
But when the latest expansion, Journey to Un’Goro, was announced earlier this week, some fans noticed that its cinematic trailer did not feature a song. Reddit poster shadowthiefo was so bothered that they started a petition on the Hearthstone subreddit demanding a Journey to Un’Goro song.
Hearthstone game director Ben Brode is never one to turn down the demands of the community. And so today he responded with the video above: a three minute hip-hop song seemingly recorded in his house with earbuds in.
It’s ... it’s something.
Polygon has reached out to Blizzard and requested that all of our future interviews with Brode be performed via dope raps.
