Fire Emblem Heroes has announced details for the Version 2.7.0 update arriving in early July. To prepare for the update, the game will be offline between midnight and 2 AM UTC on 9th July 2018. Afterwards, 2.7.0 should become playable.
Here are the new details, which you can also read about from the in-game notifications screen.
These are new maps intended to allow players to learn the rules of the game while playing. Players will be given a fixed set of Heroes (so they can’t use their own ones) and must overcome challenges within a certain number of “phases”. Your turn and the enemy’s turn are each counted as individual phases.
There will be 3 difficulty levels and rewards such as Orbs and Hero Feathers can be earned upon the first completion of each map.
- Basics: These teach the basic rules of combat and are thus recommended for beginners.
- Skill Studies: These showcase various skills.
- Grandmaster: Maps for advanced players. Only available after claring Book I, Chapter 13 in the main story.
Additional Skill Studies and Grandmaster maps will be added every Thursday during the daily rollover.
After the day’s earlier preview trailer, we weren’t expecting much else new with Heroes today. However, the game decided to drop down the Version 2.6 Update Notification! Read on below for more details of what we can expect for the next update in early June.
The Version 2.6 Update will bring a lot of new things to the game. Some of the bigger changes include an expanded Allies menu, changes to Arena Assault scoring, and the addition of Accessories! The update also brings some expected enhancements, such as further additions to the Weapon Refinery, and more smaller changes as well.
Once again, Heroes will have a maintenance period before the update goes live. It’s scheduled to begin at 10:00pm UTC on Thursday, 7 June. The update download will go live as soon as maintenance is over.
Additionally, the upcoming Voting Gauntlet: Heroes & Legends has been formally revealed! It features the four free Heroes original characters duking it out against four legendary heroes. Check out the bracket below:
The Voting Gauntlet begins this Friday, 1 June, and will last through the 7th. A special Log-In Bonus to celebrate the upcoming event also began today. Since the five summonable heroes in this Gauntlet are only available via Legendary Hero summoning events, we may not get a separate Voting Gauntlet banner. May the best hero win!
After a somewhat lengthy maintenance period, the Version 2.5 Update is now live in Fire Emblem Heroes! The game will prompt you to go to the Play Store or App Store to download the update the next time you load it up.
Heroes already shared information about of many of the update’s changes in last week’s Update Notification. However, you can take a look further below for a look at some details, including the new weapon refine options available for Camilla, Clair, and Male Corrin. Squad Assault 10 is also now available.
Additionally, the game is also giving all Heroes players a Thanks For Playing Gift! You can pick up the gift from Feh at your earliest convenience. It includes:
- 4★ Takumi: Wild Card
- 13,200 Hero Feathers
- Assorted Badges: 60 Scarlet, 30 Azure, 30 Verdant, 60 Transparent
- Assorted Shards: 20,432 Scarlet, 10,216 Azure, 10,216 Azure, 20,432 Transparent
These gifts are meant to compensate existing players for incoming changes to the game’s tutorial content. If you have already upgraded any starting heroes to 4★, this functions as reimbursement. Otherwise, you now have the materials to do so for free.

The most exciting and noteworthy additions in this update are two new game modes: Rival Domains and Blessed Gardens. Read out further below for a deeper look at these new modes.
We also get a host of smaller updates, including Weapon Refinery enhancements for three heroes’ weapons: Eirika’s Sieglinde, Leo’s Brynhildr, and Soren‘s new tome Wind’s Brand. All three weapons can now learn a special, unique skill upon refinement.
Other small changes include:

- All players will be able to re-battle immediately in the next Voting Gauntlet if they lose their match.
