Hearthstone: The new Mercenaries game mode is now live

The game includes features from World of Warcraft

Hearthstone Mercenaries, the all-new free-to-play game mode for Blizzard’s smash-hit digital card game Hearthstone, is live from 12th October, offering players a whole new way to play in its vibrant universe. Combining the depth of tactical RPG-style combat with engrossing and rewarding long-term progression, Mercenaries puts the focus on Hearthstone’s iconic characters, encouraging players to collect, upgrade, and equip their favorite heroes and villains, and call their shots in epic high-stakes battles. 

A clever way to present a digital card game

In Mercenaries, players will assemble Parties of six heroes from among their roster and set out to complete single-player Bounties a randomly generated series of battles which culminated in about with powerful Bounty Bosses. Every hero on the team will gain experience after each successful battle, increasing in power and gaining access to new abilities as they level up. Upon completing a full Bounty, players will earn a cache of treasure that includes Mercenary Coins, which they can use to craft additional heroes or upgrade ones they already own.

Mercenaries provide an experience that feels completely new, but embodies the fundamental spirit of Hearthstone. The team has opened up a whole new chapter for Hearthstone that captures its unique spirit, with a fresh mode full of strategic depth. I can’t wait to see the strategies our players will unleash on the world.

The roster of Mercenary heroes, which includes over 50 at launch, was designed to encourage players to get creative when building teams, with countless powerful synergies for players to discover. Players can also bring their most formidable teams to the Fighting Pit, where they can square up against other players and earn experience, achievements, and other rewards.

3. Exciting Tactical Combat in PVE and PVP

Mercenaries feature a combat system that rewards cunning and anticipation. Before each fight, players will select mercenaries from their team to participate in the battle. Each turn, they’ll pick their team’s actions simultaneously with their opponents and watch the results of the fight play out. Players can focus on PVE by chasing bounties or start competing in PVP to complete achievements, earn rewards, and push for a spot on the PVP leaderboard!

While picking Mercenaries for your Party, you will notice three different colors, representing different Roles. These Roles are Fighter, Caster, and Protector. Each Role has different types of moves, and different strengths and weaknesses. At the most basic level, while on offense, Fighters deal double damage to Casters; Casters deal double damage to Protectors, and Protectors deal double damage to Fighters. Find your favorite combo and build your own dream team!
