Heroes of Newerth 3.0 Launched and Screens/Trailers

New player experience key focus with 3.0 update
S2 Games 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.
Six new screenshots and seven videos have been added in our download section.
