2014 DOTA Blockbuster Heroes of Kingdoms Goes into No-Reset Closed Beta

The multi-player online battle arena (MOBA) blockbuster Heroes of Kingdoms co-developed by Gamania and Netease, a leading Chinese game company, recently held two waves of closed VIP betas which received an overwhelmingly positive response from gamers. The no-reset closed beta that everyone has been waiting for will now launch on June 14. In addition to unlocking the widely popular 10 vs. 10 grand melee mode, the fast-paced classic 5 vs. 5 mode with new original maps will also be released at the same time. The Yellow Turban Uprising and Dong Zhuo the Usurper instances of the historical RPG mode will also become available. During the closed beta, players will be able to experience 54 heroes each with their own traits and attributes for free, ranging from Zhao Yun, one of the five tiger generals of Shu Kingdom, or Zhenji who floats like a feather and twists like a dragon. To celebrate the grand launch of Heroes of Kingoms, the famous gaming commentator Ludan was invited to give the opening broadcast. In the future, more commentators will be added to live broadcasts as well.

The character design, exquisite animation and character traits of the heroes in Heroes of Kingdoms have generated much positive feedback from players. The Heroes of Kingdoms development team disassembled then re-combined every action while using live motion-capture technology to faithfully recreate every move by each hero. Extensive historical research was conducted by Heroes of Kingdoms on character appearances. In addition to the historical background, changes in regional costumes over time and even the material used in clothing required rigorous research. During the closed beta, players will be able to experience the traits and attributes of all 54 heroes for free. The 42 existing famous historical heroes will take to the field first on June 14 led by Zhao Yun, Zhu Rong, Sun Shangsiang, Meng Huo, Shamoke and Weiyang; June 19 will see the battle for China joined by Tai Shici, Zang Ba, Hanzo Hattori, Pan Zhang, Zhenji and Jiang Gan.
