  • 02 June: The 1.2.11 update was released, featuring some design changes, the addition of the Almanac, new plants and zombies that replace the use of Peashooters and Basic Zombies and various adjustments to existing cards with the objective of balancing them, along with the additions of mini-bosses in singleplayer and additional missions.
  • 20 July: The 1.4.14 update was released, which added the option to battle players online by username, a crafting and recycling system, and a new loading screen.

On the other hand, Z-Mech no longer has Possessed and instead has Rock Wall, and Basic cards can now be crafted for 25 sparks, but they cannot be recycled.

Patch Notes

Patch Notes 1.2.11

2,147,483,647 feet
This is a long section. Click show or hide at the right of the section to display or hide the text.
  • Each Hero now automatically comes with 4 specific Superpowers locked to that Hero, instead of players collecting individual Superpowers.
  • The Super-Block Meter has been streamlined. Now when a Hero is hurt, that Hero’s Super-Block Meter randomly fills 1, 2, or 3 sections. When all 10 sections of the Meter are full, the Hero Super-Blocks just like before. Any time the Hero is hurt, there’s also a 5% chance the Meter will “Insta-Block,” charging all 10 sections at once.
  • “Peashooter” and “Zombie” are no longer generic 1StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH cards that can be played by any Hero. Instead, these have been replaced with different 1StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH cards with no abilities in each Class (like Mega-Grow or Kabloom). There is one for each of the ten major “tribes” in the game (like Pea or Mushroom). All players will receive 4 of each of these cards automatically. These cards don’t appear in packs. They are:
    • Small-Nut – Guardian: Nut
    • Button Mushroom – Kabloom: Mushroom
    • Peashooter – Mega-Grow: Pea
    • Weenie Beanie – Smarty: Bean

(Was 4SunPvZH, 2StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH “Berries have double Strength.”)

Ranked Matches

Today I’m very excited to introduce a new feature to PvZ Heroes – Ranked Multiplayer! Ranked Multiplayer lets you take the competition to the next level with higher stakes and bigger rewards. In addition to casual multiplayer, you can choose your favorite superhero Plants or Zombies, and take on foes in the Ranked competitive play to win battles, collect stars, and progress through the ranks. You’ll be able to use your skills against players from around the world while you rank up, and discover new strategies.

Redesigned Deck Builder

PvZ Heroes players that have been playing since our limited launch in March will also notice a few key changes, including a completely revamped deck builder designed to make it faster and easier for you to build custom teams. We’ve also introduced a new card pack system that lets you earn coins to unlock character cards, giving you more options to choose from when building your team from hundreds of your favorite PvZ characters.
