Hearthstone has kicked off its new single-player campaign, and the Rise of Shadows expansion has settled. Blizzard is rolling out a new event, Rise of the Mechs, starting June 3. The event will include a new legendary mech card called SN1P-SN4P, buffs to cards across the board, and a new arena draft rotation.

A golden version of SN1P-SN4P will be obtainable for anyone who logs in between June 3 and July 1. Anyone who misses the event will be able to craft SN1P SN4P for the standard price of 1.600 Arcane Dust. (Sorry, you can’t get a golden crab boy.) For the purposes of rotations, SN1P-SN4P will be part of The Boomsday Project expansion, but he won’t drop from Boomsday Project packs.

There are also a host of changes to cards from every class that will buff many Boomsday Project cards. These changes are permanent, and The Boomsday Project won’t rotate out of Standard play until next year.
