Avalon Heroes: Hot update for DotA players

Munich, Germany, July 21, 2010

Avalon Heroes is 100 percent DotA and, with the latest update, so much more! After all, today's patch for the free online RTS RPG offers DotA enthusiasts oodles of additional content, once again leaving nothing to be desired. For one thing, two new heroes, Aprasas and Gai, are waiting to enter the fight in one of the many game modes. These two newcomers invite the huge community of fans to experience even more excitement while battling powerful monsters. Aprasas is the newest long-range fighter in the Oriens lineup. With skills such as Storm and Strong Blast, she enjoys taking on several opponents at once. Gai, who joins the ranks of the heroes fighting for Aeonia, is a truly gargantuan character who boasts a number of awesome skills including Bone Plate, Occult Slayer, Giant Growth, and more. As a melee expert, he is very well suited to reach for the jackpot in Arena Mode. But there's some eye candy to be had as well: Gandilva and Adelia now present themselves in new outfits, allowing players to customize their battles even further.
