Heroes of Newerth Trailer Unveils DotA Action

Following a lengthy period of mysterious silence, S2 Games has finally lifted the wraps from its PC multiplayer RTS-RPG Heroes of Newerth with a website and trailer.

HoN is in essence an expanded version of Warcraft III custom map Defense of the Ancients, where players control, level up and equip a single unit amidst a large battle, and will hit for $30 in 2009's fourth quarter.

Former DotA developer 'Guinsoo' is working at Riot Games on its own DotA-inspired title League of Legends. Thanks to everyone who tipped us off about HoN's site.
