Hearthstone: Boomsday Project Coming in August

Hearthstone's upcoming expansion, the Boomsday Project, has been announced -- and its bringing back fan-favorite Dr. Boom.

Blizzard has finally announced details on the Boomsday Project, its upcoming expansion for Hearthstone. Dave Kosak from the Hearthstone team presented the expansion in a colorful and totally ridiculous announcement trailer — featuring Dr. Boom — which is available above for your viewing pleasure.

As is usually the case, the new expansion will introduce a set of 135 new cards and also build upon The Witchwood expansion. In addition, each class will receive something never seen before — a Legendary spell.

Each class will also receive a Project card which grants a beneficial effect to both players when played; such cards have existed in Hearthstone before, but have been mostly limited to the Druid class.

A new Magnetic mechanic will be introduced which allows the merging of two Mech minions on board with this keyword, combining their stats and abilities in the process.

Lastly, the new set will include special Omega cards whose full potential will be triggered once a player has 10 mana crystals at their disposal.

During an undisclosed launch period, players who log in will receive three card packs and a random Class Legendary Minion (or a fancy hero card) from the new expansion completely free.

Full details are available on the official blog post, where you can also pre-purchase the expansion

Hearthstone‘s Boomsday Project launches August 7, with additional single player content in The Puzzle Lab coming August 21.
