The Boomsday Project is the title of the next expansion coming to Blizzard's card game Hearthstone, bringing 135 cards, new game modes, and new mechanics on August 7, although a pack of free single-player missions called The Puzzle Lab will land a little bit later, on August 21,
Only five out of the 135 cards have been revealed so far, these being Biology Project, Myra's Unstable Element, Electra Stormsurge, Spider Bomb, and Omega Defender. The last one is an example of the Omega cards, a new type of cards that unleash a powerful effect when played at full mana.
The new mechanic is called "Magnetic", and when you use it "minions can fuse with other mechs, to combine stats and other keywords. To fuse, play the magnetic minion to the LEFT of the minion you want to fuse with," as Blizzard explains.
Blizzard's game designer Dave Kosak tell us what's new and important in The Boomsday Project in the video below, but you can also take a look at the pre-order bonuses and packs on the official blog.
How could this change the way you play?
