Heroes of Newerth goes Free To Play

HoN Goes Free To Play

Kalamazoo, Michigan - S2 Games has finally released Heroes of Newerth as a free to play game to become the second game in the Dota genre to implement the business model.

Free To Play HoN

"HoN is now operating under a new, free-to-play model. This was a strategic transition intended to grow our community and solidify HoN as a major player in the ever-growing Dota genre."
-- Marc "Maliken" DeForest, S2 Games Chief Executive Officer

To create a free Heroes of Newerth account, just go to: and register your chosen HoN username.

All existing HoN accounts prior to the implementation of the free to play model will now be treated as Legacy HoN accounts.

Legacy accounts have free and unlimited access to all the heroes in the general hero pool and will continue receiving free updates for the game without spending another dollar.

  4. aw wtf LoL rawks way more than this =(

  5. Thank you S2!

  6. This sucks ! Now people make new accounts to feed, the make new account to destroy others stats, high tier players on 1900-2100 make smurfs and go and destroy games for people in 1500-1600. This sucks !!! Worst thing happened to HoN. 6.000 Accounts got lost 2 days after the patch, hmm... wondering why ?

  7. Haha, would kill League of legends. You have never tried LOL, have you ?
    HON is only now operating with the same system LOL started with. This is how LOL has been all the time. Its free to play, but you have to pay to get the heroes you want. BTW, GL HF with all the smurfs in HoN. I hear it destroys the game. So stupid HoN players are the ones killing their own game.
