Heroes: Version 1.5.0 is Now Live!

The latest version of Fire Emblem Heroes is now available for all players! All players will see a prompt to download the update as soon as they load up the game.

Most notably, the new update introduces two new gameplay modes: Chain Challenge and Squad Assault. You can access both new modes in the Story Mode section of the Battle area.

Chain Challenges play very similarly to Tempest Trials maps. Players challenge all of the maps of one or two Story Mode chapters in a row. If all of your heroes are KOed, you can try again with a new team of your choice. Normal and Hard mode Chain Challenge award Hero Feathers while the Lunatic versions award precious Orbs.

Squad Assault also includes multiple maps in a row, though the challenge is much greater. Each map in the Squad Assault must be beaten by a new team, not using any previously used units in the assault, and all units must survive. If you’re successful, you earn additional Orbs and a new Sacred Seal, Squad Ace A 1, which provides HP +3.

The update also includes a number of quality of life changes. You can see a full analysis of all updates in our earlier article here. Best of luck with the difficult challenges you’ll soon face!

Heroes Brings Ylissean Summer Banner with v.1.5 Update

Fire Emblem Heroes released its changelog for their version 1.5 update, which will include quite a few quality of life updates (Double SP Weekends, among other benefits), as well as some new play modes. Summoners can look forward to an improved Tempest Trials experience, and take part in the new Chain Challenge and Squad Assault story maps, each with their own neat twists.

Additionally, just hours before the official release of the much anticipated summer-themed banner, Nintendo released the video debuting the Ylissean Summer event, bringing in a new banner as well as a new paralogue series. Click here for the Japanese video.

Don’t pay too much heed to the incredible Frederick impersonation performed by Gaius during his debut

With the Ylissean Summer banner lasting throughout the entirety of July (June 30 until August 1), you have plenty of time to either save up some orbs, or spend them in hopes of recruiting the axe-swinging Tiki, the dagger-flinging Frederick, the harpooness Robin (F) and the bow-wielding Gaius, along with their unique weapons and slew of special skills not yet made available.
