Now for the science bit.

More details have been revealed for The Boomsday Project, Hearthstone’s upcoming expansion.

Peter Whalen, Hearthstone’s Lead Initial Game Designer, has detailed how Hearthstone has incorporated science into The Boomsday Project, which sees the return of Dr Boom as well as the introduction of nine labs, catering to each class’ particular brand of science. You can view the full video above.

Additionally, three new cards have been revealed:

  • 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.

More cards will be revealed via the Hearthstone Twitch channel at 7pm CEST on Monday July 23.

The Boomsday Project is due for release on August 7.
