S2 Games has released a new game client for Heroes of Newerth, a strategy game where two teams of up to five players each take on the role of special Hero units. Unlike many other clients for Windows-developed games, the new HoN clients were designed specifically for Mac and Linux, and went through significant testing before launch to ensure high quality player experiences. T
he new Mac and Linux clients will offer players a gaming experience on par with the current Windows client, enabling gamers to compete on an equal playing field both in and out of tournaments. The new Mac and Linux clients feature Awesomium integration, which includes HoNís in-game web browser, used to connect players to HoNTV, game guides, and more.
Both clients will also offer a new updater for faster patch downloads, and improved performance to a variety of other features.
