NASL Season 2 Adds Heroes of Newerth

BY Andrew Miesner / July 12, 2011

This past weekend eSports fans were treated to the North American Star League finals which were held in Ontario, California. During the event, players and casters would take time out of their day to meet with fans and sign autographs. This is standard for these kinds of events, however one thing was out of place. The players and casters were signing autographs at a booth sponsored by S2 Games promoting their title Heroes of Newerth. Many spectators were scratching their heads wondering why S2 Games was promoting their title at a StarCraft II tournament.

Today it was all made clear when S2 Games announced that it has partnered up with the North American Star League to feature the game Heroes of Newerth during NASL Season 2.

Unfortunately there aren’t a lot of details, besides that the game will be featured. Will HoN be a new staple of NASL broadcasts? Will there be similar prize pool for HoN players? Does the NASL plan on bringing in other eSports?

Regardless of the answers to these questions, one thing is for sure; S2 Games wants in on eSports. To get an idea of how serious S2 Games is on the eSports front, check out this interview with Shashi Singh, S2 Games’ eSports manager.
