Science Runs Amok in Hearthstone: The Boomsday Project

Blizzard has just announced that Hearthstone's next expansion will be The Boomsday Project, and it's due to launch on August 7. A new keyword, Magnetic, is also being introduced, allowing players to merge mech minions to combine their stats and abilities.

There's also a legendary spell for when it really hits the fan and you need everything all at once. Still, you'll be cursing it on release day when a Rogue manages to burn their entire deck but still draw Leeroy and 2x Cold Blood for a Turn 6 lethal. For example, "Biology Project" will grant each player two mana crystals at a cost of one mana crystal. It could also be a potent way to refuel in an aggro Zoolock deck.

LEGENDARY SCIENTISTS & SPELLS - Dr. Boom has recruited Azeroth's most eccentric scientists and inventors-each a Legendary minion in their own right-who have brought along their own insane inventions: an awe-inspiring assortment of Legendary Spells.

Now, about those keywords.

Furthermore, new Omega cards will be available, offering incredible rewards when played at 10 mana crystals.

Apple releases new, faster MacBook Pro laptops
As mentioned in our previous report, the 13-inch MacBook Pro can now be obtained with up to quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i7. Thunderbolt 3 via USB-C, support for up to two 5K displays or up to four external GPUs, and a sleek aluminum unibody design.

According to one of the researchers, "As soon as we found it, we realized it was something different". Although it has a much shorter neck and more theropod-like feet, the family resemblance is clear.

As the extra period started Croatia struggled to maintain their intense pressure but continued to threaten the England defense. The Three Lions managed their 1-0 lead for more than an hour of playing time.


Magnetic is a little more complicated.

The Magnetic ability lets certain cards be played as either a minion or a buff to a Mech minion you already have in play. It sounds like Blizzard took Deathstalker Rexxar's Death Knight hero power, swapped Beasts for Mechs, and turned it into a keyword, which is actually pretty cool. Played alone, the Spider Bomb is a three-cost minion with two attack and two life. They'll be awestruck by Projects, spells with wondrous effects that appear to benefit both players-but appearances can be deceiving! Those who build around the bonus most effectively will be able to edge out the competition. Nearest I can tell, each wing of the Puzzle Lab has its own theme.

Cards from the new Hearthstone expansion will be available for players to win in the game's Arena mode.

As the name implies, this new expansion will focus on the scientific works of Dr. Boom.

Coming off the back of the spooky theming and somewhat stale meta of The Witchwood expansion, The Boomsday Project looks like it'll mix things up in some fascinating and strategy-warping ways, with cards that facilitate unconventional win conditions and peculiar plans of attack. A bundle of 50 packs, a free golden Legendary, and a Mecha Jaraxxus card back will be sold for $49.99 - or if you want to go all-in, you can get 80 packs, the free golden Legendary, the Mecha Jaraxxus card back, and the Mecha Jaraxxus Warlock hero himself in a $79.99 bundle.
