Although students from around the world recently started their summer break, Hearthstone is headed back to school. On Tuesday morning, Blizzard Entertainment revealed their upcoming expansion for the long-time collectible card game, Scholomance Academy. The fifteenth expansion, set to launch in early August, introduces 135 new cards, including 40 Dual-Class ones that (as the name implies) can be used by two of the ten different classes to create unique playstyles, strategies, and mechanics shared by both.
The past few years have been busier than ever for Andrey "Reynad" Yanyuk. As his esports' organization, Tempo Storm, has continued to expand across the industry as new titles have popped up, it has made numerous investments in other forms of digital entertainment. Streamers, web shows, and even their own game: Tempo Storm explores everything the consumer of today is interested in. Last week Tempo Storm announced their latest milestone. The Bazaar, a digital, multiplayer deckbuilding game fully developed by Tempo Storm, received a $3.3 million investment to boost its production. Reynad sat down with Inven Global's Tom Matthiesen to talk about the investment, what it means for The Bazaar, and how Tempo Storm is paving the way for other organizations in the video game entertainment industry.
