Now Playing: Hearthstone's Boomsday Project Expansion Has New Cards And A Popular Character - GS News Update

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Blizzard has announced the next expansion for Hearthstone, coming next month. The Boomsday Project introduces a host of new mechanics and card types, and you can get a first look at a few of the cards that have been revealed so far to get a taste for this expansion's flavor.

The Boomsday Project revolves all around Dr. Boom and his cadre of mad scientist friends cooking up strange inventions and spells. The first and foremost is the introduction of class-based Legendary spells, which promise powerful effects. These appear to be paired with the class Legendary minions, each said to be a mad scientist Dr. Boom recruited to tinker with science and sorcery.

Another spell type, Projects, offer symmetrical effects for both players. New Omega cards give big bonus effects if you wait to play them until you have 10 Mana crystals. And the new Magnetic keyword lets you merge two Mech minions together, combining their attack, health, and any special effects.

The first five card reveals provide a look at each of these mechanics, along with the Shaman Legendary minion Electra Stormsurge. Check them out above. The Boomsday Project launches August 7. A pre-order bundle offers 50 packs for $50 with a special card back, and a separate $80 bundle bumps that up to 80 packs and throws in the Mecha-Jaraxxus alternate Warlock hero.
