EMS Season X Includes Heroes of Newerth
For the third time Heroes of Newerth will be part of the upcoming tenth season of ESL Major Series. While season nine is running in the final stages, we are proud to announce that Heroes of Newerth is returning with another 5.000 Euros prize pot! In the very near future we will host another 4 international qualifiers in which teams can qualify.
The ESL Major Series starts the new year with a surprise for the fans of the popular Heroes of Newerth (HoN) which is based on Defense of the Ancients (DotA), as it will remain an official game within the major league.
About Heroes of Newerth:The session-based, multiplayer, action-RPG recently released a highly anticipated and upgraded version, HoN 2.0, which features a more action-packed game style that enhances the adrenaline factor for hardcore gamers and attracts more casual gamers. In addition to enhanced visual elements, 3V3 map and map editor, and cosmetic items shop, HoN 2.0 easily matches teammates with a new Match Making System. HoN 2.0 also introduced an entirely new game play mode – Casual Mode – that lowers the barrier to entry for new and casual gamers.
HoN 2.0 streamlines the game play experience, enabling faster and shorter games– and taking the HoN platform one step further than DotA. HoN, since its launch earlier this year has garnered a dedicated following, with more than 12.3 million downloads, and an average of more than 230,000 players per day. The team-oriented design of HoN, when combined with the HoN 2.0 upgrades, allow for an incredibly deep tactical team-based experience unlike any other.
In addition to the ESL Major Series integration, HoN, developed by S2 Games, will become an important eSport-title within the ESL. Further information on the upcoming ESL Major Series Season 10, the details on Heroes of Newerth and more will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
Stay tuned for more!
