Disney Heroes: Mod Preview
We are excited to share a bit about our upcoming feature, Mods, and give you a preview of this first stage. Mods are a new way to customize your heroes and make them stronger. Mods will only be on Server 1 while we test the feature and gather feedback.
Mods are upgrades you can equip to your heroes to increase their core stats. The shape of the mod determines which core stat the mod increases:
- Circular mods increase a hero’s hit points
- Square mods increase your hero’s basic damage
- Diamond mods increase a hero’s skill power
The color of the mod determines which heroes it can be used to boost. Each mod can only be used with heroes from the same Team Color used in Team Trials. (Trials groups all heroes into three color-based teams: Red, Blue and Yellow.)
Mods can be upgraded by using a new resource called Mod Power. Upgrading a mod increases the stat boost that it gives to a hero. A normal mod can be upgraded from Level 1 to Level 20.
Some mods you will get will be +1 “attuned” mods (other mods are effectively +0). These mods are stronger, but more limited:
- They give a larger stat boost
- They can be upgraded to level 30
- But they can only be equipped to a specific hero
If you really want to use an attuned mod on a different hero, you can spend hero chips to re-attune it to a different hero.
Earning Mods and Mod Power
With this first release, there are limited ways to earn mods and mod power. We have plans for a new game mode called Invasion that will be the primary way to earn mods.
But for now everyone on Server 1 will get a mod for free in their mailbox. There will also be a contest this weekend where players can earn another mod and mod power. Lastly, attuned mods for a few select heroes will be available from Event bundles for diamonds.
More to Come
The version of mods releasing on server 1 is just the initial step. We have some fun plans for making mods more customizable over time. And we’re also working on the Invasion mode in parallel. Keep an eye out to see what’s coming next. And in the meantime, Server 1 players, please check out mods!
