announced today that the 3.0 update for Heroes of Newerth
has gone live for all PC, Mac and Linux versions of the game. Featuring an entirely revamped Walkthrough, first-time players will now be better prepared for battle in the world of Newerth. Players will also have access to the in-game Learnatorium, featuring a brand-new series of videos explaining the basics of gameplay as well as more advanced techniques.
Many of the game’s heroes have undergone high definition facelifts and the standard 5 versus 5 map, Forests of Caldavar, has received a complete textural overhaul. The map's layout has received a more detailed design with dynamic new aesthetics, buildings and tower designs. The patch also introduces reworked and enhanced UI for a more seamless gameplay experience, including customizable friends list notifications, streamlined options menu, and enhanced in-game chat.
Additionally, players are now able to hone their skills against AI controlled Bots before tackling human opponents. The AI-controlled Bots will offer three levels of difficulty: easy, medium, and hard. As an added bonus, the Bots' AI code has been open sourced, allowing players to mod them to battle against other user-created Bots.
