Heroes of Newerth (HoN), developed by S2 Games, is a multiplayer battle arena game that was released in May of 2010 and made free-to-play in July of 2011. The game finds heavy inspiration from Warcraft III’s custom map Defense of the Ancients.
The game pits two opposing teams against each other by placing them at opposite ends of the map and tasking them with claiming the opponent’s base. Each player, in control of a single hero from a top-down perspective, must navigate and fight their way through the enemy army and their defense towers in order to destroy the primary structure located at the opposing base. ‘Creeps’ are spawned every 30 seconds for each team to assist with the battle.
Experience is earned for being nearby when an enemy is killed and is used to level up the player and his/her four abilities. Gold can also be earned through battle to purchase various items.
The game tends to be fairly competitive and the learning curve can be a turn off for some players. That being said, those willing to take the time to learn the game and progress their character will find the experience extremely rewarding.
