Next Expansion Named The Boomsday Project & Returns to Mechs - Hearthstone

Look for more cards to be revealed starting on July 23, with the Boomsday Project hitting Hearthstone on August 7. As for spells, a new effect called "Project" will come into play, which gives players a mutually beneficial increase in mana crystals and a project that'll help you out when your opponent plays a spell card. Finally, we're getting Legendary spells for the first time. The cost to play it doesn't change, so Druids in particular will have added incentive to boost their mana count to the top as quickly as possible. Omega Defender, for instance, gets +10 Attack making it a four mana cost Taunt minion with 12/6 in stats.

Blizzard is also introducing a new mechanic its calling Omega.

NEW KEYWORD: MAGNETIC - Merge Mech minions with the Magnetic keyword, combining their attack, health, and abilities to construct truly fearsome amalgamated automatons. Still, you'll be cursing it on release day when a Rogue manages to burn their entire deck but still draw Leeroy and 2x Cold Blood for a Turn 6 lethal. A 3/3 at first glance might not seem too exciting, until you remember that Shaman has some outrageously powerful spells. Players will marvel at the discovery of nine new, immensely powerful Legendary Spells! However, if you play the Omega cards at 10 Mana, they receive a massive upgrade.

Hearthstone's current landscape will son be altered once again with the next evolution of the metagame, as a brand new expansion is due for release next month.

Hmmm, we wonder what this Hero card does.

Microsoft Surface Go: a rival to Apple’s iPad?
Added to this is an 8.3 mm thin design , and a device that tips the scale at 521.6 grams sans detachable keyboard cover. Industry watchers expected the device, dubbed the Surface Mini, to be released in 2014, but it never materialized.

Excited for more reveals?

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.

Those of you who have PTSD flashbacks at the sight of spawning boombots and maniacal, mechanical laughter might want to look away now.

The Puzzle Lab will include over 100 different mind-boggling puzzles that will set up like brain-teasers. More details on Mecha-Jaraxxus are expected soon, but players can pick him up by pre-ordering the Boomsday Project Mega Bundle, which comes with 80 card packs, along with a random golden legendary, and the Mecha Jaraxxus card back.

As it always has been, players will be able to purchase a 50-pack bundle of the new cards before the expansion arrives along with an exclusive collectible card for $49.99. Witchwood Piper is now a Demon (a possible slight nerf to Warlocks), and North Sea Kraken and Jungle Moonkin are now considered Beasts.
