Heroes of Newerth celebrates anniversary with a new mode

Heroes of Newerth has a lot going on during the next few days. It's the second annual HoN-iversary, which marks the introduction of a new game mode called Mid Wars. S2 Games has adapted the popular "All Mid" custom game type that should be of real interest to new and old players alike.

In Mid Wars, there is no loss of gold upon player death, respawn times have been trimmed, and skill progression moves at a faster pace. The goal -- to provide "high action, low stress gameplay" -- seems to be a smart one. S2 Games has a new map and matchmaking for Mid Wars, so go try it out.

Another notable content addition to Heroes of Newerth is the Riftwalker, a ranged intelligence hero. Hit the gallery to see what she looks like, or go check out the patch notes if it's specifics you're looking for.

While Mid Wars may be the main attraction, S2 Games has plenty of other stuff going on for the HoN-iversary celebration:

  • Global HoN Challenge, May 7-13 – With over 450,000 active players around the world playing HoN daily, S2 will unite the Global HoN Playerbase in a race for Limited Edition In-Game Items all week long. By playing a game of HoN at any time during HoN-iversary week, each player can help unlock special items such as the new Kongor Courier, Kongor Taunt, and the Steampunk Electrician Alt Avatar as we aim for the stars and challenge gamers worldwide to play over 1.1 million games of HoN!
  • 4x Silver Coin Matchmaking, May 11-13 - Players will receive 4-times the number of Silver Goblin coins awarded for each matchmaking game played during HoN-iversary weekend. Silver Goblin coins can be used at the In-Game shop for Alt Avatars, Heroes, and more.
  • The Newerth Fan Art Contest - The HoN-iversary is a celebration of community. S2 would like to thank all of the passionate and artistic members of the HoN community for their amazing tributes! Every entrant placed their talents on the line and brought their own HoN-iversary flavor to the contest. After much deliberation, we are happy to announce the results.
  • iGames LAN Centers HoN-iversary Blowout, May 11-13 – iGames LAN centers across the US and Canada have joined forces with S2 Games to bring Heroes of Newerth to a neighborhood just around the corner.
