Has-Been Heroes receives a major expansion

Posted on November 10, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Frozenbyte has prepared a major expansion for Has-Been Heroes. It’s out now as a free update on Switch.

New to Has-Been Heroes are Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief from Trine as playable characters. They can be accessed after unlocking the Epic Quest mode. Sky Temple has also been added as a new region, along with “Challenge Mode” and “Seed More”.

We have the full rundown about the expansion and a trailer below.

The expansion adds tons of new content for players to discover and includes the Trine heroes – Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief – as playable characters once you have unlocked the Epic Quest mode. The Epic Quest mode will be a true test of skill for the most veteran players as the heroes have no starting spells! Complete with custom animations (Amadeus attacks with a box!) and beautiful 2D visuals in the style of Has-Been Heroes, the Trine heroes definitely need to perform some heroic deeds to complete this quest from another universe!

The expansion also adds a new region to the main game called the Sky Temple. Each Sky Temple run will include unique twists, new enemies and new bosses!

Updates to the main game include:

8 Young Heroes to unlock
New “Sky Temple” region
120+ new spells
150+ new items

For players looking for another challenge, the expansion pack also brings two new game modes: “Challenge Mode” and “Seed Mode.” Challenge mode is a single difficult battle with pre-set loadout of characters, items, and spells. By completing a Challenge players unlock a new Young Hero. Seed mode allows players to share a seed number with friends and play the exact same game/run with a timer upon completion. Use this to host a competition between you and your friends and compare strategy.

      What difficulty spike? It’s called learning the game, git gud scrub.

      No difficulty spike in this game! It is a “gift gud” game. Or get awesome spells and items and then wreck all.

  • Princess_Eevee9

    It’s very annoying that this game is soooo passed over under-rated… I look forward to playing this and now with more content it’ll be a blast!
