Heroes of Newerth Goes Free-to-Play

Posted Aug 02, 2011 by Michael Bitton

Heroes of Newerth Goes Free-to-Play

S2 Games MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) Heroes of Newerth has switched over to the free-to-play business model. New accounts are considered "Basic" accounts and are then upgraded to "Verified' accounts after a certain amount of playtime, or, if the user purchases any amount of Goblin Coins (the game's item shop currency).

Both Basic and Verified accounts will have access to a rotating roster of 15 heroes, with the ability to purchase heroes a la carte as they come out.

Players who purchased the game in the past will have their accounts upgraded to "Legacy" accounts, which grants lifetime free access to all Heroes of Newerth heroes.

Basic accounts will only be able to play in Basic rated matches, while Legacy and Verified accounts can play in "Verified Only" games in order to allow new players to get acclimated to the game.

For additional information on the switch, be sure to check out the official Heroes of Newerth Free-to-Play FAQ.
