S2 Games has announced the release of updated Heroes of Newerth clients for both Linux and Mac users. With the release of the new client versions, the team expands the potential player pool for the recently detailed HoN Tour, a competitive multiplayer tournament.
Unlike many other clients for Windows-developed games, the new HoN clients were designed specifically for Mac and Linux, and went through significant testing before launch to ensure high quality player experiences. The new Mac and Linux clients will offer players a gaming experience on par with the current Windows client, enabling gamers to compete on an equal playing field both in and out of tournaments. The new Mac and Linux clients feature Awesomium integration, which includes HoN’s in-game web browser, used to connect players to HoNTV, game guides, and more. Both clients will also offer a new updater for faster patch downloads, and improved performance to a variety of other features.
