Gaston Comes To Disney Heroes: Battle Mode

Disney Heroes Battle Mode has been updated to get a brand new playable character, Gaston, from Beauty and the Beast, plus many other updates to fix some issues.

Disney Heroes: Battle Mode 1.7.2 Update also sees a significant refresh for Captain Jack Sparrow.

Here are the details:

Overview

  • Gaston from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast joins the battle!
  • Captain Jack Sparrow receives a Hero Refresh!

Gaston

Gaston is a back-line control character. He will be available in Diamond Crates on Servers 1-12.

Skills

Wrestling Match
Gaston jumps into the middle of a group of enemies, damaging and stunning them. Gaston then stays in melee range and fights with his fists for the rest of the wave.

Burly and Brawny
Gaston rips open his shirt, stunning or charming nearby enemies.

Five Dozen Eggs
Once per battle, when Gaston reaches 0 HP, he gulps down several eggs to heal himself and become invincible for a short time.

King Pin
Gaston’s stuns last longer if the target is below a certain health percentage.

 

Hero Refresh

In past updates, we have occasionally buffed older heroes to make them more relevant in the current metagame. For 1.7.2, we’re trying a new twist on this idea called a “Hero Refresh.”

For a Hero Refresh, we’ll choose one hero that we feel is underpowered or underutilized in the game and focus on really revamping their kit. This can include adjustments to hero stats, skills, and even memory disks.

In addition, we will also select a few heroes who compliment the main hero and make smaller adjustments to them. The goal being to ensure the refreshed hero has the team support needed to be a member of fun and useful lineups.

The focus of our first Hero Refresh is none other than Captain Jack Sparrow! The supporting heroes are Captain Hector Barbossa, Rex, and Nick Wilde.

Captain Jack Sparrow

Captain Jack Sparrow has been with Disney Heroes: Battle Mode a while now and we thought it was high time for him to become more competitive in PvP. Captain Jack is a hard hitting frontline hero with a powerful team buff, but is often KO’ed before he really gets to shine.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an Invasion issue in which iPhone X home bar covered boost counts and empowerment on the far left character.
  • Fixed an issue where enemies defeated in Invasion didn’t count toward progress for the “Defeated” challenge.
  • Fixed an issue where auto-promote would incorrectly appear to be available in some cases.
  • Kevin Flynn’s “Data Shield” now targets the correct units in Heist.
  • Woody’s “Lasso” always lassos the furthest enemy now.
  • Fixed an issue where Darkwing Duck’s “Case Quacked” memory would counter shields more often than skill description indicated.
    • Increased “Case Quacked” chance to block shield by 10%
  • Improved performance for older iOS devices – this should resolve the issue with the app freezing or crashing that was reported after update 1.7.
