The Boomsday Project is Hearthstone's Next Expansion
The second Hearthstone expansion for Year of the Raven has been announced and five new cards have been revealed.
- The expansion launches on August 7!
- New Keyword: Magnetic - Played by themselves or can attach to a Mech minion to add on their health, attack, and ability.
- Projects are new spell cards with extremely powerful effects, but they help both players.
- Omega Project - These cards are normal, but have a Battlecry that works when you have 10 Mana Crystals.
- There will be legendary spells, such as one that draws your entire deck!
- We're getting a new Warlock Hero - MECHA JARAXXUS!
- Warriors are getting a new Dr. Boom as a Legendary playable hero (at least that's what it appears to be in the video).
- Logging in after the expansion launches gives you 3 card packs and a random legendary minion from the set.
When you experience The Boomsday Project’s free single-player content, The Puzzle Lab, you’ll discover that science is fun! And dangerous! Not necessarily in that order!
You’ll need to get your security clearance before you can gain access to these secrets, though. The Puzzle Lab will become available starting August 21.
More cards will be revealed starting on July 23!
