Join Brent “Buro” Wiedmer, Lead Creative Designer for HoN as he gives an inside look at the development process behind the new hero: Rally. The new mechanic introduced with Rally, called Vector Entity, is an evolution of the existing Vector Targeting ability which adds an exciting and challenging new dimension of play. This ability led into the theme of Rally, a hero who compels his allies and strikes fear into his enemies on the battlefield. Be sure to check out the HoN Hero Spotlight for Rally and prepare for Rally’s debut in Newerth on August 3rd.

In the armies of men and beast most soldiers are brave and true. They are loyal and follow the orders of the men who command them. But among the armies there must be leaders of men, generals to whom all others wills bend and heads bow. These are the men and women who take command of the forces that defend Newerth from the Hellbourne hoard. They give new meaning to the word hero and all men come to their call — RALLY!

HoN Hero Spotlight: Prophet

Play Heroes of Newerth for FREE: www.heroesofnewerth.com In the world of men and beast there are many paths to power. Some men take up arms and fight with steel and powder, others turn to the lost technology of the golden ages, worship the gods of old or learn from ancient tomes of power. There are those who take a different path, one of pacts and binding. These are not the infernal pacts of the Deamons, but instead they are made with the forces that oppose the chaos the Hellbourne bring. The creatures of the world and the forces of life, death, and nature themselves all wish to have their say in the fate of Newerth. To ensure the Hellbourne are driven back into the pits from which they spawned, each will empower an avatar to fight on their behalf — a Prophet to ensure that fate favors the bold.
