Blizzard Entertainment has announced the next Hearthstone expansion, The Boomsday Project.
The new expansion is themed around the inventions and mad science of World of Warcraft character, Dr. Boom. It will include 135 new cards, and the keyword Magnetic. This allows a card with Magnetic to combine with a Mech and increase its stats and give its ability.
Another mechanic includes projects (cards that help both you and your opponent) and Omega Minions (who gain new abilities and stats when they are summoned while the player has ten mana crystals). Each class will also receive a new Legendary Spell.
The Boomsday Project expansion will release August 7th. A card reveal will happen on the official Twitch Hearthstone channel on July 23rd.
