Frostburn Studios has announced the final major content patch for Heroes of Newerth. The 4.7.3 update, scheduled for the 26th of this month, will mark the last hurrah for the almost ten-year-old MOBA. The developers say any future updates will be minor ones, with just balance changes and bug fixes.
“Tributes to certain staff members have been put into some item flavour tooltips to thank them for all their hard work throughout the game!”
Once considered the most formidable competitor to League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth was unable to maintain its status in the tournament scene, and over the years the player base has dwindled. While there is a core of dedicated players, this announcement will likely mark the end of days for many.
