HoN vs Arena of Valor: In this article, we will be comparing two very popular MOBA games in recent times. However, keep in mind that HoN is a PC game, and Arena of Valor is a mobile game. But is one game better than the other at core gameplay? Let’s find out.
Heroes of Newerth
Heroes of Newerth is a MOBA game developed by S2 Games. It is published by Frostburn Studios. HoN was inspired by Dota 1 and it tried its best to stay true to the original content. The game was released on May 12, 2010, and re-released as a free-to-play game on July 29, 2011.
Heroes of Newerth is just as punishing and competitive as Dota 2. Before Dota 2 was released, many Dota 1 players had transitioned to HoN. But after the release of Dota 2, many players moved away from HoN, because Valve got in IceFrog.
Arena of Valor
Arena of Valor is the international adaptation of ‘Wangzhe Rongyao’, an extremely popular Chinese mobile game. Both the games were developed by Tencent.
Arena of Valor was released in 2016 in Taiwan. Its popularity grew massively each passing day. Tencent slowly started releasing the game in different countries and now its playable all over the World. Arena of Valor is also available on Nintendo Switch now.
Arena of Valor is called the ‘kingpin of pocket gaming’ in the mobile gaming market, and has amassed over 200 million players.
HoN vs Arena of Valor: As you must have guessed, these games are very similar to each other. However, HoN is a PC game, while Arena of Valor is a mobile game.
Hence, gameplay-wise these two titles are quite a bit different, as they have their own flavor. It’s quite clear that both these games are quite good and entertaining, so the only question is: Do you prefer playing on your computer or your mobile.
If you prefer playing on PC, go for HoN. If you are a mobile gamer, go for Arena of Valor. I personally prefer HoN because I’m a PC gamer.
