Heroes of Newerth goes free-to-play (again)

By - | Views: 2,940
S2 Games is no stranger to letting go of the reins when it comes to their games. Both titles in the Savage series has been released free of charge. Their latest title, the two year old Heroes of Newerth follows in that tradition.

In case you are confused, HoN was re-launched as a free-to-play title roughly a year ago, this new development releases all restricitions and makes all of the games heroes available to everyone. This is most likely a result of information that the upcoming DOTA 2 will do the same.

There's more information and an FAQ in the announcement for update 2.6.11. Article taken from

unfortunately HoN didn't appeal me enough. it has native client and pretty good graphics, but i play LoL instead because its just much more simpler game to play and i'm too lazy to play hardcore.
too bad that LoL doesn't have native client. but it works without problems with playonlinux.
anyway i might give few more tries to HoN in the future

I recommend mid wars, 5v5 matchmaking map with only one lane and almost no respawn timer. It's crazy fun, and people tend to rage less if you're bad in midwars.

Also, they've made it a lot more accessible recently, adding in things like range indicators and the like on skills, and having in game guides is just fantastic.
