6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
S2 Games has begun a week long event to celebrate the debut of Kinesis, the 100th hero for its multiplayer action RPG Heroes of Newerth. The celebration will include daily and weekend drawing giveaways of in-game currency packages, a grand prize 100,000 gold goblin coin prize for the player who wins at least one match each day of the week, promotional giveaways of the new hero on social media outlets, and a chance for players to compete against the S2 Games team in exhibition matches.
After nearly two years and over 100 updates, its massively popular session-based, multiplayer, Action-RPG Heroes of Newerth (HoN) will usher in its 100th hero this Friday, March 2nd. The hero – a telekinetic warrior dubbed Kinesis, will be commemorated by S2 Games with a week-long $100,000 player appreciation event and celebration.Learn more at the site below.
The event kicked off yesterday with the launch of a daily drawing giveaway for packages of in-game currency (Gold Goblin Coins) valued at over $100,000. One thousand $10 prize packages will be given out each weekday as well as another one thousand $50 prize packages over the course of the coming weekend. Once a player logs in and wins a game of matchmaking, he or she will be entered into that day’s drawing. Winners will then be chosen randomly from that pool of eligible participants. The event will conclude with a grand prize giveaway of 100,000 Gold Goblin Coins for one lucky player who logs game-time and wins at least one match each and every day throughout the week.
S2 Games will also be giving away hundreds of promotional copies of their 100th hero through Heroes of Newerth’s official social media outlets - Facebook and Twitter. Following the hero’s release this Friday, March 2nd, the developer will host a very special S2 vs. The Community event, where North American and European players will have the opportunity to play head to head in exhibition matches with S2 Games staff, including the HoN Hero Design and Balance Team. Every time the community beats the developer at their own game, everyone who played a game that day (12:00am-11:59pm EST) is one step closer to winning an account symbol, silver coins, and a brand new Alternate Avatar.
In addition to Gold Coin giveaways and event prizing, players can also take advantage of double Silver Coin matchmaking and mega-sale prices on all non-Early Access heroes. Heroes of Newerth players new and old are invited to take part in this week’s 100th hero celebration complete with giveaways, prizes, and so much more. Visit the official website for full event details and follow along all week via HoN’s official social media channels by liking on Facebook or following on Twitter @heroesofnewerth.
