January Update - Game launch

Greetings heroes, the open beta is over and our guys and gals at the Fast Forward Studios are working hard to bring you the release version as soon possible! It shouldn’t take long before you can experience the milestone in the history for Planet of Heroes.

During all betas we had in 2016, we received a lot of feedback, constructive and encouraging, so this January update aims to polish up the game and add more to it - creating a great foundation for this new year.

The release plan will look like this:

The game is now launching into a live state on iOS in Singapore, Germany, and Canada! And will be available starting tomorrow in those three regions directly from the AppStore. Android users and other regions will stay the in a beta state BUT THERE WILL BE NO MORE WIPES. No matter which platform or region - your data starting tomorrow will not be reset anymore. We aim to bring the game in a launch state worldwide as soon as possible!


Before we jump right into the changes let’s take a quick look at who got to the top of the leader boards in the last phase:

  1. GalaXY
  2. UFC
  3. Bensen

Bensen managed to push out the usual suspect Nutshell out of the top three! GG WP! With that said, the new season will start with the next update and we have much more planned in the future!


“ENOUGH of that - I want to know what’s new!”

What is the issue with the play store version? You can't install the game? Does it now download?

ChainWarden
13 January 2017

Why is it high ping? Always having high ping even tho I'm the only one using the WIFI. Got plans to fix this?

zeus
13 January 2017

Your device isnt compatible with this version Why

Clapton
developer
13 January 2017

Chainwarden: Ping is determined on who you play against and who you play with. Try to get some friends to play with you and you should get a server closer to you. U_10194897: That's because your android device is probably not strong enough to run the game.

zeus
13 January 2017

No, because last versions of the game correcrtly downloaded and runed with no pb my country is iran. I waited for this update all day long but i think remove it that is better

zeus
14 January 2017

what is version of the game?? .00.688??? is this?

GalaxyNite
19 January 2017

The game now is more laggy than last time and i think the cost of heroes are wayyyyy too much.

zeus
19 January 2017

I think the previous version of game was better in terms of graphic. Ping. And camera. The game has change and cost of buying heroes,skin and .... is so expensive Please return last version and add some changes. Good luck

Clapton
developer
20 January 2017

Hey Zeus, the Graphics didn't really change. The economy changes are because the beta was there to purely test the field of currencies and other mechanics. We did some changes to matchmaking this morning! Give it a shot

LiL LucK

Great game, will there be a limited time event to try out neelu? As we got the option to try out all other characters previously. Also is there clans in the plans? Keep up the great work.

zeus
21 January 2017

Ping is always between 300 and 600

Clapton
developer
23 January 2017

The game will be fully released on Android soon. In meantime try the early access version and send us your feedback! Regarding Neelu try out - we can't promise anything like that but will check for future heroes.

Hey guys. New player here. Really love the game and i understand since it isnt released yet i shouldnt expect much so i wont talk about lag issues but there are multiple single player campaign bugs mostly related to the time frame. I completed the tasks within the time limit but i dont get the star for that. P.S. Duncan needs a beach skin (with sunglasses).
