Hearthstone Mercenaries is Now Live!

Hearthstone Mercenaries is now live! Log in now to see one of Hearthstone’s biggest updates ever, and play Hearthstone like you’ve never played it before!

What is Hearthstone Mercenaries?

Mercenaries is Hearthstone’s newest game mode! Mercenaries combines permanent RPG progression, roguelike elements, and iconic Hearthstone characters into a new, free-to-play Hearthstone experience. Form a Party of your favorite characters and set out on a Bounty, adventure awaits!

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!

You can learn more about Mercenaries combat in the Gameplay Blog, and more about the game’s progression systems in the Village/Gameplay Blog.
