If you’re one of the millions of players who still creep and farm in the popular Warcraft III mod, Defense of the Ancients, you have a big decision to make. Last month, we took a close look at League of Legends: Clash of Fates, an upcoming team-based real-time strategy that’s being hailed as the “spiritual successor” to Defense of the Ancients. But this month, we got to check out a new contender.
S2 Games, the creators of the Savage series and developers of Heroes of Newerth, also seems to have its sights set on the legions of DotA fans. Like the original mod, Heroes of Newerth borrows a bit of the best from every genre. Like a mash-up between an RTS, an action RPG, and a team-based FPS, Heroes of Newerth looks mighty promising. Haven’t heard of it? Check out our hands-on preview. Better yet, read our contest rules and let us give you a closed beta key so you can play it yourself!
