First Look: The wacky scientists and “sciences” in The Boomsday Project, Hearthstone’s upcoming expansion

Today, Lead Initial Game Designer Peter Whalen gave an overview of how science and Hearthstone collide in The Boomsday Project, the upcoming expansion for Hearthstone.

Hearthside Chat with Peter Whalen: Boom Labs

As the expansion about science, The Boomsday Project explores crazy, Hearthstone-ified science, wacky scientists and their inventions, and the many experiments gone wrong. To illustrate this, Peter revealed three cards coming in The Boomsday Project:

  • Flobbidinous Floop – As the Druid class scientist, Floop is a 4 mana 3/4 Legendary minion, but while he’s in the player’s hand, he transforms into a 3/4 copy of the last minion played. Floop promotes open-ended deck building and allows players to experiment in wild ways.
  • Supercollider – A Warrior weapon that forces a minion to attack one of its neighbors if it survives. You know, a typical Warrior invention.
  • Whizbang the Wonderful – The most wonderful scientist of all! With Whizbang in their deck, players start the game with a random deck recipe that Whizbang chooses. It’s 18 decks in one card, and is a great way to experience lots of different decks and styles.

Want to see more cards coming in The Boomsday Project? Tune into our card reveal kick off livestream on our official Hearthstone Twitch channel at 7pm CEST this upcoming Monday, July 23!

Separately, Ragnaros the Firelord has returned with the Fire Festival! Log in right now for double gold for completing quests, Fire Festival-themed emotes, and play a special Tavern Brawl against both Ragnaros and Frost Lord Ahune.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
