Heroes of Newerth 2.0 Is Here Too

Heroes of Newerth, the multi-platform game where we gave away thousands of beta keys last year (more than any other web-site), has now reached version 2.0.

Heroes of Newerth 2.0 contains many in-game improvements highlighted by the video that's embedded below. Of course, the Linux game client was updated in tandem with the Windows and Mac OS X 2.0 builds. S2 Games, the company behind this title, had told us back in September that their Heroes of Newerth Linux port was a huge success. Unfortunately, months later they have not yet elaborated on that with any quantitative figures.

Times though are certainly great for Linux gaming with Unigine Corp starting off the week by expanding their Linux game development competition to hopefully provide three new Linux games, Alien Arena 2011 is about to be released, Frozenbyte's Trine Linux port is nearing completion, there's a new dedicated Linux game porting company, and Humble Indie Bundle #2 was just released. It's only Tuesday and there's already all of this Linux gaming news and the week is far from over.

At the very least, there's one more Linux gaming related item coming up and it will be exclusively detailed on Phoronix this weekend or perhaps Monday.
