New Hearthstone Expansion Release Date and Theme Announced by IGN

The next expansion is all about its most OP card ever

Hearthstone’s next card expansion will be launching on August 7 and be called The Boomsday Project.

Themed around mechs and led by one of Hearthstone’s most infamous characters, Dr. Boom, The Boomsday Project will add 135 new cards, as well as a new single-player puzzle mode called The Puzzle Lab.

Here’s a look at some newly revealed cards:

For the first time ever, each class will be getting a legendary spell card — you can see the Rogue’s in the gallery above. A new keyword, Magnetic, is also being introduced, allowing players to merge mech minions to combine their stats and abilities.

While not keywords themselves, The Boomsday Project also introduces two new groups of cards: Projects and Omega cards. Projects are cards that benefit both players, while Omegas are normal cards that get a huge boost if you have 10 mana crystals when you play them.

Examples of each new card type are shown in the gallery above.

Instead of having a boss fight-style single-player mode like the last two expansions, The Boomsday Project will introduce a new mode called The Puzzle Lab. If it’s anything like other card game puzzle modes, players will likely be faced with specific, set scenarios and have to figure out how to use the cards available to them to accomplish some goal.

Players can pre-order bundles of 50 or 80 Boomsday Project packs starting today for $50 or $80, respectively. Both sets include a free golden legendary card and the exclusive Mecha-Jaraxxus card back, and the 80-pack bundle includes Mecha-Jaraxxus himself as a new playable Warlock hero.
