Blizzard bungles reveal of Hearthstone Mercenaries
By Aron Gerencser September 3, 2021
Blizzard has recently revealed the Mercenaries spin-off mode for the popular Warcraft-based card game, Hearthstone.
It could have gone better.
The game mode will incorporate new roguelike elements and took inspiration from Slay the Spire.
Following a long period of nothing but rumors and silence, Blizzard cranked the information to 11.
An extremely information-dense explanation video still failed to really let players know how Mercenaries will work.
Despite not really knowing what Mercenaries will play like, players already have the chance to drop $130 on nebulous pre-orders.
After a year marked by poorly received Hearthstone expansions and a scathing sexual harassment lawsuit being filed against Activision-Blizzard, fans are skeptical.
Hearthstone Mercenaries - whatever it actually is - launches on the 12th of October.
