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!
The next Voting Gauntlet is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! Choose your favourite Spring-themed hero to support in the Bunny Battle Ballot Voting Gauntlet.
The Gauntlet features new and old Spring Heroes fighting head-to-head. Here are the starting match-ups:
As usual, we also get a series of quests to complete. Battle in the Gauntlet and in certain training maps to earn Battle Flags, Orbs, and other prizes! These quests refresh each round.
There is also one important change for this VG. If you lose your battle, you’ll be able to start a new one right away without having to wait for a half hour to pass. This will save players from getting a bad match-up and potentially needing to use a Light’s Blessing to avoid missing a bonus hour.
The first round of the Bunny Battle Ballot runs until 6 April at 3:59am UTC. The entire Gauntlet will come to a close on 10 April. May the best Spring Hero win!
Also, as a reminder, the final Awakening Warriors Map comes out today! In between Gauntlet matches, you might want to head over to the Special Maps menu to battle against Odin.
On 30 March 2017, Fire Emblem Heroes started its first seasonal heroes summoning event. One year later, the Original Spring Heroes Banner is back, with special versions of Lucina, Xander, Chrom, and Camilla.
These four spring heroes have returned to participate in the upcoming Voting Gauntlet: Bunny Battle Ballot! The original seasonal variants will be fighting head-to-head with the new spring units available in the current seasonal banner. Check out the bracket below:
Today also starts a special Log-In Bonus in honour of the newest Gauntlet! All players will earn an additional 13 Orbs over the next ten days, just for logging in.
The Voting Gauntlet will begin on 4 April, so you still have a few days to summon and train the hero you wish to support. May the best Spring Hero win! The Original Spring Heroes Banner will be around a bit longer, ending on 10 April.
A new event is now live in Fire Emblem Heroes! Voting Gauntlet: Shadow in the Mirror pits four heroes against their darker counterparts. Check out our earlier article for details.
As a reminder, you can find the Voting Gauntlet screen now located within the new Events page of the Battle menu. Each round of the Gauntlet lasts a little under two days, ending three hours before the daily reset. As usual, each round also brings new quests for you to earn up Battle Flags, Orbs, and other rewards.
The final round will end at 3:59am UTC on 8 March. May the best hero, or villain, win!
