    “Mercenaries is a completely new experience, but one that carries the essence of Hearthstone,” Blizzard co-leader Mike Ybarra said in a press release. “The team has started a new chapter for Hearthstone that captures its unique spirit, with a different mode full of strategic depth. I can’t wait to see what strategies players will bring to the world,” he concluded.

    Hearthstone is available for free for PC, Mac, iOS and Android.
