Hearthstone's Scholomance Academy expansion artwork without logo

[Update]: The Scholomance Academy expansion has now arrived alongside a whole bunch of new cards.

I hope you're ready for a bit of a meta shake-up, because Hearthstone's next expansion Scholomance Academy is just around the corner! You can expect to see it in early August alongside an assortment of dual-class cards, a brand new Spellburst keyword that activates once you cast a spell, and as you might imagine given the name, a whole bunch of assorted magical shenanigans!

As is tradition, the expansion announcement was accompanied by a rather musical cinematic trailer. And don't worry about things turning too dark as Blizzard has gone for a more cheery Scholomance of the past, rather than the grim and dreary one we currently have in World of Warcraft. Anyway, have a look:

When it comes to the cards themselves, only a couple have been revealed so far, but they should still give you a pretty good idea of the sort of themes Blizzard is going for. You can check them out over at the card list. Additional cards will be announced at a fairly regular basis, so make sure to stop by every once in a while.

As for the expansion itself, you can learn a little bit more about Scholomance Academy, as well as keep an eye on its release date, over at the Hearthstone website.
