Every summer, gamers go through a debilitating drought. The well of releases worth playing slows to a trickle and many are left to do nothing more than drool over the titles planned for release next holiday season. It's during this time that many gamers come to ModDB to satiate their gaming appetites. They search high and low for something that will pique their interest.

While the MOTY Awards provide a wealth of choices among mods and indie games, they usually overlook gaming gems within our community released in the first half of the year. To combat this oversight, ModDB has launched the Summer of Mods & Indies event! Featuring exclusive content from all the major releases of the last 6 months, gamers are bound to find something to quench their thirst.

The Summer of Mods & Indies provides much needed exposure to mods and indie games in order to help them connect with their potential audiences. If you'd like to participate in this year's event, your too late... entries closed on July 15th. Instead sit back, thank the presenting sponsor US Air Force, and prepare to be bombarded with exclusive content from the best mods and indies from the first 6 months of the year.

Familiarize yourself with the Hellbourne units in Savage 2: A Tortured Soul

Posted by stenchy on Aug 4th, 2009

The Hellbourne units are available to both factions in Savage 2, but require a certain criteria of prerequisites to be completed to make them available for use. Hellshrines must be constructed to summon theses demons from deep within Newerth at locations known as "scars". As a result, these locations are highly sought after for good reason — unleashing the Hellbourne for your faction almost always leads to a major turning point in the game. Whether it's securing the win or making a comeback of epic proportions, the Hellbourne will represent a savior and a bringer of doom for many.

Don't forget to check out the unit over views for both the Legion of Man and the Beast Horde as well!

For free accounts, Hellbourne are limited to a one time use for each. By upgrading to a prime account, you can enjoy unlimited play as Hellbourne (when available) in addition to theses other features:

  • 2 extra inventory slots
  • Player statistics
  • Achievement system (earn achievements to gain tickets for persistent items)
  • Global replay system (view any replay from any game, anytime!)
  • Create/manage clans rather than just join them
  • Unlimited Hellbourne use
  • Support independent developers!

thank god they took the maliken out xP
"crap they got a maliken, were boned >_<"
you should realy try it :D, like Feillyne says, its free
You can get the premium package, but other then the stats its not that much = you can definitly play witouth it
the only REAL downside of not having it is that you can only be hellbourne once
then again, its 10$ (one time) for premium, you shouldn't complain about that :D

Is the Hellbourne limitation a per-game thing?

Ryswick17 Aug 5 2009, 5:37am replied:

If you get premium its only limited to how many kills you get

For free players you can only use each one ONCE per that account
