Hinterlands Staff probably played World of Warcraft

Recommended Posts

The names of the places in Great Bear when all pieced together sounds too familiar to locations in World of Warcraft.

HInterlands: The company's name itself is a large zone in World of Warcraft Azeroth (https://wow.gamepedia.com/Hinterlands)

Forlorn Muskeg: There's a location in Duskwood called Forlorn Rowe right next to the Hushed Bank (https://wow.gamepedia.com/Forlorn_Rowe)

Hushed River Valley: Hushed Bank right next to Forlorn Rowe in Duskwood (https://wow.gamepedia.com/Hushed_Bank)

Timberwolf Mountain: Sounds very familiar to Timbermaw Hold (https://wow.gamepedia.com/Timbermaw_Hold)

Blackrock Federal Penitentiary: A prison complex located in Great Bear Island (https://thelongdark.fandom.com/wiki/Blackrock_Federal_Penitentiary). Blackrock Mountain and the Blackrock Orcs are a very core part of World of Warcraft (https://wow.gamepedia.com/Blackrock_Mountain)

Before I really knew this game decently I always thought the game took place around great bear lake which is a massive lake in northern canada where there is plenty of muskeg and mining. It's also pretty close to the ocean.

There is also a timberwolf pizza shop at a famous location in the canadian mountain range. I am not sure about the other regions...

@desertedoneHm. No. Or better ... yeah, some of them probably did, but that's certainly not the reason for those commonalities.

Not too sure about this, there were a zillion locations in the original WoW alone so it's kind of hard not to come up with similar names at some point. But since you played WoW, do you also find that the soundtracks in my clips below resemble Jason Hayes' WoW original soundtrack? And I don't say that to critisize the composer, they're obviously very talented, but to me these short passages might be an homage to Mr. Hayes.
