Heroes of Newerth

Heroes of Newerth

Heroes of Newerth (HoN) is a real-time strategy game heavily based on the Warcraft III scenario Defense of the Ancients, or DotA.

In Heroes of Newerth, two teams of up to five players each take on the role of special Hero units. With the assistance of AI-controlled armies, each team sets out with the sole objective of destroying the other teamís base. As a match progresses, players can earn experience and gold which can be used to upgrade skills or purchase items to make their character more powerful.

HoN focuses on hero control and development, and does not include common real time strategy game features, such as base management, resource collection and single-player missions.

Heroes of Newerth won the Audience Award at the Independent Games Festival 2010.
