April 1

Help the Community hunt 10,000 Rare Divio.

Hey Heroes,

In celebration of Spring, we are here to bring you a new challenge. In the spirit of the season, we are hunting the BIG GREEN MEANIES, 😈 that’s right folks we are hunt down Rare Divio! Once the community has destroyed 10,000 Rare Divio, Mixtape's Quickfire will be unlocked for those Heroes who have participated through April 30th.


One thing to keep in mind for this challenge, when initial engaging in combat with the Rare Divio is their clones will start to stack up quickly. If left unchecked they will outnumber you and end your adventure before it really begins. Try to target the Rare Divio himself instead of working through the clones to get to the big guy.

If the challenge is completed by April 30th, the full CrossPlay community will be awarded Mixtape’s QuickFire. The timer is ticking so let’s get out there and get to work!

Special Reinforcements from Valve Games!

Next Up Hero is so hard, we called in backup from our favorite Valve Games!

About This Game

Fight. Die. Win! (And probably die some more.)

Next Up Hero is a Gauntlet-style dungeon crawler starring hand-drawn heroes that hack, slash, shoot, drum, boomerang, jet, and explode their way through Ventures. Choose your Hero (and/or invite a friend to co-op) and start rolling dungeons, gearing out, and maxing your stats against the vile monsters known as the Ceaseless Dirge.

  • Defeated the bosses? Craft your own dungeon for the community
  • Dungeon defeated? Do it on Insane!
  • You did that? Then Min-Max your favorite character.
  • Maxed all heroes? Tell us what you want next on!
  • You seriously did all that? Try it again with your favorite co-op partner.

Next Up Hero? So what? My backlog is full of dungeon crawlers!

Fancy yourself a game designer? Let’s see what you got. Craft a savage dungeon, and challenge the community to beat it. If they beat the dungeon, they get to keep a rare piece of loot. If they fail, the treasure is yours.

Death is so permanent in Next Up Hero that your “echo” remains for the next player to raise. People die a lot in Next Up Hero, so you can resurrect up to 20 AI followers!

It’s Hero vs. Dirge powered by Mixer Interactive. Spectators can control the echo army, helping the hero survive the flood, or buff the Dirge enemies, slowing and freezing the player.
