We have eight (8) invites for the Heroes of Newerth Beta to give away.Â They’re supposed to be for “Friends” but we’ve either gotten them into the beta already or they got in on their own.Â Â To have a chance at getting one of these keys all you need to do is visit our forums and make a post in this thread.Â I’ll close the thread within the next 6 hours and give them away randomly (I’ll use a number generator to generate a number and the corresponding post #’s get the keys).Â Be sure to sign up for a forum account with a proper email (or check the one you have listed already) because that is where I’ll send the key if you win.
What is Heroes of Newerth?
It is exactly like DOTA in almost every way.Â When I say exactly, I’m not using that word loosely or exaggerating.Â This isn’t one of those cases where people say “It’s a WoW clone!” when a game is just similar.Â This is DOTA.Â S2 games, creators of great games like Savage and Savage 2 have, for some reason, decided to remake and improve upon DOTA.
It’s one of those games where you play a hero (isometric view) and level him up by killing enemy heroes and creeps, get him items, kill the enemy base, and win.Â It’s a tug-of-war type system where each side has a base and creeps travel down lanes trying to push into the enemy base.
Give it a try.Â For the most part, the game is a quick way to get some fun action.Â The games are relatively quick (average 25 min) and you’ll find it has a shocking level of depth for such a simple game.Â The community can suck – big time – and it can cause even the most relaxed people to rage, but that’s because it really sparks a competitive edge in most people.
The NDA is still up for media (screenshots/videos) but you can talk about the game.Â I’ll answer any questions you have here.
Update:Â All keys have been given out.Â Check those emails and get playing!
