Hearthstone Mercenaries Expansion Is Now Live With A New Single-Player Mode
The PvE-centric Mercenaries expansion is now live in Hearthstone bringing with it new single-player content for players who prefer to go on solo adventures. The latest expansion introduces a game mode called Mercenaries that’s combines the permanent progression of RPGs with roguelike elements for a unique gameplay experience.
“In Mercenaries, you form a Party of up to 6 Mercenaries instead of a deck of cards. You can then take that Party in to the Travel Point in order to hunt a Bounty, or to the Fighting Pit for single-fight combat. When fighting, up to 3 of Mercenaries are active while the rest wait on the Bench, ready to jump in when one of your active Mercs falls. In combat, lock-in your team’s moves and then watch as both teams automatically battle it out! With different Roles, Abilities, and Equipment for over 50 launch Mercenaries (and more to come), there are countless ways to personalize and empower your Party!”
New cards can be earned by simply playing the new game mode, with 8 free Mercenaries up for grabs upon completing the tutorial and prologue missions. Additional Mercenary Packs can also be acquired through login rewards, a Legendary Quest Chain, and the in-game cash shop.
