S2 Games has officially unveiled the latest patch to free-to-play MOBA title Heroes of Newerth, bringing the game to version 3.0 for all. The latest patch brings with it not just a range of graphical updates but also various tweaks and changes including the addition of bots, guides and more.
New player experience is the key focus with the 3.0 update. Featuring an entirely revamped Walkthrough, first-time players will now be better prepared for battle in the world of Newerth. Players will also have access to the in-game Learnatorium, featuring a brand-new series of videos explaining the basics of gameplay as well as more advanced techniques.
“HoN is almost three years old now and we are continuing to invest and improve the game,” said Marc DeForest, CEO of S2 Games. “We consider ourselves very fortunate to have such a tremendous player base that’s helped to grow the game to where it is today. The 3.0 update is a serious step forward as we look towards a bright future in 2013.”
Various changes to the game include high-definition facelifts to majority of the heroes, the addition of AI bots and their open-source coding plus graphical and physical changes to the standard 5 v 5 Forests of Caldavar map.
