Blizzard Announces Mercenary Mode for World of Warcraft
Lets you switch factions in PvP.
Blizzard Entertainment have announced that their decade old and genre defining pioneering MMORPG, World of Warcraft, will soon be getting a ‘Mercenary Mode’ for its player versus player combat, which will let players switch factions.
“Whenever your faction is experiencing a long wait time to get into Ashran or unrated Battlegrounds, agents of the enemy faction will appear in your base in Ashran (Stormshield for the Alliance, Warspear for the Horde). These agents will allow you to enter Ashran or Battlegrounds disguised as an enemy player, and actually fight as the opposite faction,” Blizzard said, slyly pointing out that one should “keep [their] friends close, and [their] enemies closer.”
Mercenary Mode will be out for limited testing soon, and Blizzard plans on making it widely available to its entire playerbase shortly afterwards. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for information on exactly when that might happen, as well as information on the dynamics of rewards and faction alignments under this mode.
