Hearthstone: The Boomsday Project is another expansion for free-to-play card game Hearthstone. Like the base game, it has been created by Blizzard Entertainment studio.
The add-on’s themes are goblin science and technology, and it marks a return of the infamous Dr. Boom. To discover what is the latest plan of the mad goblin, we need to go to his hideout, located in a dangerous area of Netherstorm. Those who dare to venture there must have a great courage, facing amalgamates, strange crystals and dangerous monster created in labs.
Just like previous expansions, The Boomsday Project adds 135 cards, this time focused on goblins’ crazy inventions known from Warcraft franchise. Developers also introduced a few mechanics, including a new keyword – Magnetic. This lets combining magnetic minions and mechs to increase statistics of the latter. Another novelty comes with Projects – powerful supportive spells that help both sides. There are also Omega cards that gain additional effects if played with 10 mana, some of those bonuses being very powerful (e.g. increasing an attack by 10). Lastly, The Boomsday Project adds legendary spells with devastating effects, like drawing all cards from our deck at once.
Hearthstone: The Boomsday Project features no new game modes.
There are no technical or visual changes in this expansion.
