Heroes of Newerth is now Free to Play

29.7.11


It's still summer and that means tech savvy teenagers are staying indoors doing computer gaming, killing newbies and mic spamming on TF2 since it went F2P. Now another company is going on the same road. 

Heroes of Newerth (well known as HoN) is now a free-to-play science fantasy, action real-time strategy game developed by S2 Games and is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Released back on May 2010, HoN is heavily inspired by the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne custom map, Defense of the Ancients.

Similar to TF2's F2P method, new players will have a Free Account. After a player has surpassed a certain threshold of game time, or purchased Goblin Coins, their account is upgraded to a Verified account.

Existing paying players will have Legacy accounts which can't be purchased anymore. Legacy accounts players will receive a lifetime of free access to all HoN heroes and are able to play in Verified Only games.


You also don't need a kick ass gaming notebook or computer as the game will run smoothly on any modern systems.
