6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

S2 Games and new regional partner Axeso5.com have announced that Heroes of Newerth is now available in Latin America. Latin American gamers can now play HoN in both Spanish and Portuguese. S2 Games and Axeso5 are celebrating the launch by offering players a series of rewards and incentives, including new alternate avatars, exclusive icons, and the official Latin American HoN Tournament Calendar. The announcement follows months of worldwide expansion for HoN, including South East Asia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

“We are really excited about partnering with Axeso5 and offering HoN to players in their local languages,” said Marc DeForest, co-founder and CEO of S2 Games. “The new Latin American client will help make HoN more accessible to new players, and improve the gaming and eSports experience, which will be great for everyone.”

Players can join S2 Games and Axeso5 in celebrating the launch with two special alternate avatars for the popular heroes Gunblade and Bubbles. Available today, Pirate Gunblade and Fútball Bubbles join the ranks of more than 100 HoN heroes. Additionally, Axeso5 announced the kickoff of the official HoN Tournament Calendar with special events in five cities across the region and the first Latin American Finals to be held at the Brasil Game Show (October 14 ,2012) to award the first Latin American Championship team with an all-expenses paid trip to DreamHack Winter 2012 in Jonkoping, Sweden.

“With HoN we begin a new era of eSports in Latin America and believe that the path we are taking will lead our players to a whole new experience in online gaming in the region”, said Cristian Schweizer, founder and CEO of Axeso5.com. “It´s an historic event for eSports in Latin America. We strongly believe in the skill and professionalism of our region´s players and are confident that it won´t take too long until we can proudly announce the first Latin American team to crown itself as the HoN World Champion.”

In addition to the exclusive items and awesome new avatars, the Latin American game client will offer players a host of benefits, both in-game and out. Axeso5 will provide online game support in Spanish and Portuguese, as well as forums and social media feeds in local languages for the first time. Axeso5 will also host multimedia events offering game guides and other periodic updates, as well as live streaming of the official tournaments held across the region.

Players can migrate their accounts to the new Latin America client by creating their account with Axeso5, following the instructions found on the HoN Forums. With the new game clients, players can select new account nicknames at sign up.

Prior to Latin America, HoN launched local clients in South East Asia (SEA) and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Nearly 40 million games have been played on the SEA client since launch in June 2011, and 6 million games in CIS in just eight months. Countries included in the Latin American client are Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
