You unlock Heroic difficulty level after beating the game once. I am not sure if you have to beat the game on Normal on your first playthrough. I played on Normal first so I can't tell if this works on Easy as well.

You can use your characters from playthrough 1 for Heroic difficulty. This is a must since Heroic is much more difficult. Enemies have lots of HP and deal lots of damage.

I used the scout (not the dwarf since he is so slow and not the mage). The scout has a big advantage - he has the stealth skill. Level this up properly and if your two AI collegues die you just activate the skill with RT + B and you can revive a buddy no problem - he will immediately take care of the others.

Since you keep your level from playthrough 1 you will have a lot of skills unlocked and keep unlocking during Heroic since you level up a lot. Work on your combos and use your skills well.

Also don't underestimate your ranged attacks! You will find and buy very powerful ranged weapons and with the skills of either character you can make things easier for you.

The really hard areas are the areas where you have to protect someone. This is really tough since your AI collegues will not help you at all in this. So it is handy to have a friend on hand especially at the war machine sections.

Also - if you are in trouble and you can summon your bird, don't hesitate. You will find several feathers. Just remember to keep at least 5 or so on stock - you never know when you might need them.

After beating the game on Heroic the difficulty level "Legendary" unlocks. I have beaten the first chapter there so far - it kind of SEEMS to be ... ummm ... easier ... than Heroic.
