About HoN:

In Heroes of Newerth, two teams of up to five players each take on the role of special Hero units. With the assistance of AI-controlled armies, each team sets out with the sole objective of destroying the other team’s base. As a match progresses, players can earn experience and gold which can be used to upgrade skills or purchase items to make their character more powerful. The team-oriented design of HoN coupled with unprecedented in-game Voice-Over-IP controls and Clan Support allow for an incredibly deep, tactical team-based experience.

Some of the unique features of HoN include the following:

• Dozens of playable Hero characters, over 100 items as well as regular content updates to ensure no two games of HoN will ever be the same.

• Client/Server Architecture eliminates lag, cheats and map hacking

• Quick reconnect feature allows players to jump right back into their game should they get disconnected

• In-game VOIP for fast and easy communication with teammates

• Game archives and replay support for all games played on official servers (players can rewind, slow down, fast forward, and otherwise pinpoint the exact part of a match that they wish to view)

• Built upon the proprietary K2 engine to deliver enhanced graphics while maintaining low system specs

• Powerful map editor and mod capabilities

• Available in six language translations: English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese and Russian.
