Activision-Blizzard presents The Village with Hearthstone Mercenaries. This serves as a central hub for players to accept bounties, manage their minions, and more. It is also the base of operations for PvE and PvP battles.
The Hearthstone Mercenaries Tavern
The image below gives an overview of the tavern. It's pretty much what most people would expect, which is very reminiscent of the simplistic nature of Hearthstone.

To access a particular area, players can click on the image in this in-game menu. For example, by clicking on the Workshop, they will be able to access the Workshop space. It's much like the regular Hearthstone menu, except players don't switch between menus. In Hearthstone Mercenaries, the player can access all menus from this central hub.
The domains were expanded upon in this Activision-Blizzard blog post. However, this table contains all the information presented on the site:
|Atelier||Players can build and upgrade all other village locations here. By upgrading the slots, they have a new look and become more functional. Upgrades to your village are persistent, so you can watch it grow and prosper over time.|
|Tavern||This is where players can manage their mercenary collection and form groups. Players can craft, customize, and upgrade the abilities and equipment of their mercenaries.|
|Point of travel||This grants access to bounties across Azeroth for Mercenary PVE gameplay. The player can choose the bounty from a list within an area. In each area, bounties unlock sequentially, along with suggested levels and pre-determined bounty bosses, so players are aware of any danger.|
|battle pit||Here, player teams are matched against mercenary teams with similar strength. The Fighting Pit has very different gameplay from Bounties because you can't see what moves your opponents are using. Get rewards, complete achievements, and even try to climb the leaderboard!|
|Merchant basket||Players can find the Hearthstone Mercenaries in-game store here. Mercenary Packs, Mercenary Coins, and any seasonal or personal offers complete the available content.|
|Mail boxes||Mercenaries mode announcements will be sent to players through the Hearthstone mailbox. This is where players can check what types of events and offers are available!|
|Feu de camp||The task board is located at the campfire. The task board is similar to the quest log or the achievement tab of the log. There will be a task to complete each day near the campfire, given by the mercenaries. These tasks can be rewarded with Mercenary Coins, Mercenary Packs, or Equipment for a specific Mercenary.|
