S2Games has just announced the start of the Heroes of Newerth open beta.
With the release of 0.3.0 we are preparing for Open Beta which will begin Wednesday, March 31 @ 4:00pm PST. We will continue to work on the client and improve all the additions to the game. We also have an awesome new hero on the way! We haven't released ANY information about it, however I'm sure you will see some stuff leaked soon.
HoN has been extremely popular for a closed beta. There is never any less then 20,000 people online at one time (usually there is around 50,000). It will be interesting to see if that number increases much as it seems anyone who is interested about the game has already been invited into the closed beta.
You can view a countdown to beta here.
and the latest version of the Heroes of Neweth beta client can be found locally on AusGamers
