Heroes of Newerth

S2 Games is preparing a hefty update for its free-to-play MOBA game, Heroes of Newerth, version 3.0. The developer has released some screenshots highlighting the revamped buildings and textures, as well as a peek at a redesigned hero.

One of the key features of the 3.0 update is the inclusion of lore within the world of HoN. A new trailer sets the stage for the renewed focus on HoN lore.

Heroes of Newerth 3.0 will be launching in early 2013. A seven-figure budget went into developing the update. The promised improvements include:

  • AI bots, and better training modes for new players through use of AI bots.
  • 30 of the original character models are getting an overhaul.
  • The map is getting an overhaul, including the buildings, towers, wells, and general textures.
  • Improvements to user interface, in-game chat, buddy list, and notifications.
  • Improvements to the “report a player” system.

    From Dota to HoN to LOL to Dota2 and then back to LOL for anyone who cares this is what its all about for me … Dota was great but the war3 engine was aging the limited space on the screen was irritating and lame no matter the resolution on your screen … I played it until I couldnt play it anymore and had loads of fun ! so I tried HoN and hated it .. the people on there were so rude and had no sense of friendship and they would destroy noobies insulting them to no end ! at least dota on the war3 server here is SA was awesome people were so helpful and it made the game so much fun .. So I moved onto LoL it was hard at first it was very difrent to dota but I got use to it people were kind and helpful and the engine and graphics were just amazing I loved it ! I got an inite to play Dota2 and I was over the moon so I went strait for it just to be digusted! The gameplay was terrible the graphics were useless its insulting to play a new game thats graphics dont even compare to a two year old game like LoL so I decided to over look all of this cause I mean if you can play minecraft then you can play anything regardless of the graphics … but all in all I gave it a shot it is kinda fun but the amount of time you spend on it just isnt worth it LoL is fun from the begging of the game to the end .. I know my opion is mine and others may differ but thats what I’ve experienced 🙂

  • Must say I have to disagree on Dota 2 having bad graphics – I really like the art direction and the visual effects. It’s easy to see what’s going on.

  • St3baS

    Agree with this. Saying Dota 2 has bad graphics makes me think hes playing on a coal powered PC or confusing it with another game.

  • Meh, Looks like dota2…

  • Yeah it looks hand drawn 😀 its very well done…
