Heroes of Newerth has been around for many years and has undergone many significant updates. The result is a MOBA that's well-seasoned, but still keeps that zest.
Like most games decedent from Defense of the Ancients, players square off in 5v5 matches, slaying minions, pushing down towers, and buying new gear. Each hero has their own unique skills. HoN requires teamwork to get the most out it. From there, it's a race as each team tries to outmatch the other and take their opponents base. Each player has a "Match Making Rating", which insures that you'll always find the right mix of skill levels in a game.
Unlike many other MOBAs, every hero comes unlocked right away at the start. However, the in-game store sells a host of cosmetic items. It has everything from hero skins to a voice pack by Duke Nukem himself, John St. John!
Knowledge is power, and you'll need all the power you can get. To help the budding novice, S2 Games has released the Learnatorium, a comprehensive collection of tutorials that teach you how to use every hero and ability in the game.
MOBAs can be scary games to hop into, and that's why S2 has implemented computer controlled bots. By playing with bots, players can test out new builds and strategies, learning at their own pace. For the adventurous, the bot AI is also open for modding, so you can try your hand at building your own opposition.
