On July 19,nearly one year after announcing its free-to-play model S2 Games announced publicly that the game would be completely free to play with no restrictions to hero access, excluding Early Access to yet to be released heroes. The entirety of assets, including maps, items, heroes, and art were made in 21 months. Open beta testing for Heroes of Newerth began on March 31,and ran until May 12,when the game was officially released.
