Up to 13 heroes are available at launch, with plans to release a new hero bi-monthly. Arena of Heroes is free to play, but players can upgrade by customizing heroes sooner and accelerating their level-up time.

Gamers have three ways to play: single-player vs. AI, classic turns against live opponents, and asynchronous turns.
