Hearthstone Mercenaries is an all-new way to play Hearthstone, the smash-hit digital collectable card game, combining RPG and roguelike elements. And you don’t need a deck to play.
In this free-to-play game mode, players will recruit and collect legendary characters from across the Warcraft universe to take down procedurally generated Bounties. Players can mix-and-match over 50 unique Mercenaries (with more to come), each with three upgradeable abilities and potential synergies, to create countless squad combinations. Hearthstone Mercenaries will launch worldwide on 12, October 2021!
Here’s how you play:
- Powerful Starter Squad: Upon completing the combat and village tutorials, all players will receive eight well-rounded starting Mercenary Cards.
- Fast-paced Turn-based Combat: In head-to-head battles, players choose their moves simultaneously (actions with lower Speed ratings trigger first), until their opponent is defeated.
- Progression: Mercenaries gain experience for defeating enemies and max out at Level 30.
- Collect ‘em all: A variety of tasks and Bounties grant Mercenary Coins that can be spent to craft additional Rare, Epic, and Legendary Mercenary Cards. New Mercenaries can also be obtained from Mercenaries Packs, with a guaranteed Mercenary Card or Mercenary Portrait in each pack.
- It Takes a Village: In the Village, the main hub for Mercenaries, players can manage their collection, collect task rewards, upgrade buildings, set off on Bounties, and so much more!
