New Hearthstone Expansion Leaked in Story About Virtual Penises


The new Hearthstone expansion might have just leaked, but it wasn't via social media or a report. Instead it was tucked away in a story about a virtual penis.

PC Gamer wrote a new story about a recent update in Scum which included a penis slider for your character. In the story was what appeared to be a copy and pasted breakdown of the new expansion in Blizzard's Hearthstone card game called Rastakhan's Rumble.

The Hearthstone subreddit picked up the leak before PC Gamer was able to remove it from the story. Here's the copy for the new Hearthstone expansion that was included in the Scum story.

"Nine teams will take part in the latest iteration of this time-honored Troll-down, each led by a Legendary Troll Champion representing one of the Hearthstone classes. The Loa, ancient spirits worshipped by the Trolls, will also take part in the fighting as Legendary minions. Shirvallah the Tiger is the Paladin Loa, which costs a cool 25-Mana to cast. You can reduce that outlay by casting spells, but even so it seems like a restrictive price for an effect that's probably only going to be good in incredibly slow control decks."

The new expansion appears to center around a "no-holds-barred battle" as players "compete for the blessings of the Loa and the favor of King Rastakhan." It will apparently be revealed as part of the BlizzCon opening ceremony.

It appears to be an honest mistake either in the CMS or during editing and while this isn't the likeliest source for a leak, we can't say it's not a little bit funny. Oh, and also there's a new update in Scum that lets you change the size of your character's penis.
