Multiplay to give away 5000 beta keys for Heroes of Newerth

Multiplay - one of the largest gaming communities in Europe - is pleased to announce it has 5,000 beta keys for S2 Games' Heroes of Newerth. The keys are for the closed beta and will be available from Monday 3rd August from Multiplay's gaming downloads site, www.fileplay.net.

Craig Fletcher, Managing Director of Multiplay said:

"We are very pleased to be chosen by S2 Games to release 5000 keys for their highly-anticipated title. This represents the latest in an increasing portfolio of content delivered through the Fileplay site. Developers and publishers alike are really seeing the benefits of the clean, easy-to-use site for their beta key and file distribution needs. With new features still being launched, such as the High Definition video streaming last week, the site is going from strength to strength."

To coincide with the UK’s largest LAN event, i37 ( http://iseries.multiplay.co.uk), Multiplay will be allocating 2,000 of these keys specifically for those attending the event. The remaining 3,000 will be distributed over five days, with 600 available each day. These keys will allow the lucky gamers to join the closed beta and be some of a select few who are enjoying the game in advance of general release.

Demand is immense for what many are calling the next version of DotA, so people need to be fast to secure a key. Further information on how to claim can be found here: http://www.fileplay.net/keys/12/heroes-of-newerth-beta
