S2 Games, developers of the popular PC title, Heroes of Newerth (HoN), announced today that it will bring its Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game, HoN, to China with partner, Jingle.
With the over 60 million registered users, Heroes of Newerth’s expansion into China aims to stabilize S2 Games presence as a global competitor in the MOBA market.
S2 Games had a massive impact at DreamHack Winter 2013 as it was the one of first public previews for our latest second generation MOBA, Strife. This year, we really wanted to give back to DreamHack attendees, who, since the show's inception, have been instrumental in helping us grow.
To show our appreciation, we opened the doors to an exclusive pre-beta Strife demo giving the more than 23,000 unique DreamHack visitors access to a Strife pre-beta client. The demo was the first public debut of 5v5, player vs. player matches and was only playable by DreamHack Winter 2013 attendees.
If exclusive access to Strife wasn't enough, we also partnered with Razer to randomly give out six (6) 14” Razer Blade laptops and fifty (50) Razer gaming peripherals and were a stop on the Razer Scavenger Hunt, which, to those who completed the challenge, had another opportunity to win cool prizes. To participate at our booth, scavenger hunters simply had to wield Ace's hammer and muster the energy conquer his Trial of Strength.
Thanks to everyone who supported us to make DreamHack Winter one of our best events yet!
