Version 2.7 of the HoN2DotA Mod has been released!
Posted by pureevil29 on May 11th, 2012
Main Features as of version 2.7:
- 30+ New Heroes. (Most of them exact Dota heroes ports or at least inspired by them)
- CPU Controlled Ai Bots. (Excellent for new players to learn the game and/or test the new heroes)
- Day one access to whole hero pool. (In HoN2DotA there is no need to unlock/buy heroes or pick them from a limited hero pool, all 90+ heroes are available to the players right from the start).
- Day one access to all alt avatars. (In HoN2DotA there is no need to unlock/buy Alt Avatars, all Alt Avatars are available to the players right from the start).
- No internet connection, accounts or registration required. (Just pick a Nick Name and start playing. This is especially convenient for LAN parties since all games created will be visible over TCP/IP connections, over Hamachi, Tunngle or similar ONLINE LAN tools).
- Multiplayer Playable Custom Maps. (Many of the most amazing custom made maps for HoN are playable with this mod not only in Practice mode but in fully featured multiplayer matches)
- Beta Flavour. (This mod uses HoN's old Beta Engine meaning that there are some differences with the most current version so a few features and UI tweaks are missing from the mod but the feeling is closer to the Beta Times which is one of the main purposes of this mod.
Version 2.7 is mostly focused on balancing, CPU Bots improvements, Custom Maps and General bug fixing but also brings many new models, textures and effects. Enjoy!
