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.

This story was first published on CNN .com, " Tears as Thai boys see parents for the first time since cave rescue ". The group was trapped in the cave by rising water and rescued in a dramatic operation that captivated the world.


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.
