Fire Emblem Heroes is a free-to-play mobile game developed by Intelligent Systems and Nintendo. It is currently available for iOS and Android devices. It is a mobile version of the Fire Emblem series. In celebrating the debut of the said mobile game, Intelligent Systems and Nintendo will be holding a special event.
Gameplay and Orbs
The gameplay in Fire Emblem Heroes starts with a grid map where players summon characters to defeat opponents. Players may create a group of four heroes all throughout the story who will fight against other teams. In the game, the currency known as orbs may be used to obtain additional heroes. The orbs can be obtained by finishing in-game activities or via in-app purchases. They can also be used to cast Light’s Blessing which is used to heal all units, revive defeated units, activate skills and allow a team to move again. There is an additional way to obtain orbs with the newest event.
Fire Emblem Heroes Special Event
The special Fire Emblem Heroes event will give players the chance to challenge their characters and gain more summoning orbs from the game. In this special event, Intelligent Systems will release five maps in almost a month’s time. This will specifically be between the period of February 6 to March 14, 2017. The developer will make every map available on two difficulty modes. Players will obtain three Orbs if they are able to defeat each given map on both Normal and Hard modes. There will be a total of 30 orbs up for grabs.
As advised by Siliconera, Map 1 is a good place where a player can send Wind Mage and Axe Wielder classes. This is because the characters in Map 1 are difficult to battle. The aforementioned classes may have an advantage over the opponents in the first map.
For instance, Jeorge and Gordin are two archer units whom players can encounter in enclosed spaces in the first map. They are accompanied by Oboro, who is armed with a spear, as well as Robin, the thunder mage. Players would have to break down walls to the archers’ rooms so that they can continue on to the additional warriors. It is worth noting that Robin and Gordin are the most difficult opponents to defeat in the game.
The schedule for the launch of the celebration map is as follows. Map 1 will be available from February 6 to March 14, 2017. Map 2 is available from February 13 to March 14, 2017, while Map 3 will be from February 20 to March 14, 2017. On the other hand, Map 4 will appear from the period of February 27 until March 14, 2017. Lastly, Map 5 will be set for a shorter period which is from March 6 to March 14 of this year.
In addition to the five special and limited maps, players can also get Village Hero Donnel in both 1-star and 2-star editions by playing through Map 1 in the special event.
