Heroes of Newerth or HoN is a team-based strategic multiplayer game where you assume the role of a hero on the Legionnaire or Hellbourne alliance. The game is currently in closed-beta and is largely based on the popular Warcraft III custom map Defense of the Ancients, making several improvements in match making, graphics, hosting, and support.

The game runs on Windows, MAC OSX, and Linux.

IMPORTANT: For those of you in the beta, feel free to TALK in this thread, but kindly post no screenshots or link to videos. Savage has asked that we refrain from such activities at this time, and it's in our interests to comply and not get several of us kicked from the Beta.

    The game looks pretty interesting but I missed the beta stuff, if someone can send me a key I would appreciate it.

    Covered, thanks Exarjade.

    I would like a key, too. This seems like the closest thing to an updated DotA.

    It's really dark and has terrible voice sets.

    Also, new map(s), that are really just the same thing with different juke spots, until they start adding 2v2 and 3v3 maps.

    But, outside of gameplay, it has a better matchmaking setup, stat tracking and trophies (ugh), better pre-game interface, better friends lists and the like. Mostly just stuff you'd expect to find in a game being made in 2008/9, but not in a map for a game that came out in 2002.

    Okay, handing out beta keys it seems is handled easier in the comments for the thread. When you do get yours though, make sure to make a post as to who you are in-game and I'll add you to the list.

    I have like 13 keys... >_>

    I haven't actually tried the beta yet either. :P (was busy with Demigod when beta started)

    I guess if we can get a bunch of PAers it'll give me a good reason to try it out.

    So first 13 to PM me.

    Protip, putting your email in this thread is just asking to get spammed by bots.

    I have 6 spare keys. I tried playing this game and disliked the asshole-ish community immediately.

    PM if you need a key. One per costumer and you can't be a lurker/new account.

    EDIT: 4 keys remaining.
