BERLIN, GERMANY – August 21, 2014Aeria Games today released a brand-new video for Chaos Heroes Online , the action-packed multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) set to launch this fall. The new video takes a deeper look at the origins of the game stemming from one of the maps in the original Warcraft® III DotA™ mod, DotA: Chaos. Gamers can currently sign up for the beta at ChaosHeroes-Online.com.

DotA: Chaos took South Korea by storm and provided a solid foundation for Chaos Heroes Online and developer NeoAct, the renowned Korean studio known for developing popular multiplayer titles. To honor the game’s legacy, the developers stayed true to the artistic direction and veteran players will recognize characters inspired by Warcraft III units. The core gameplay includes many of the original RTS components combined with exciting features that create a more action-packed experience that will challenge even the most experienced MOBA players.

“We are very excited to bring Chaos Heroes Online to Western players,” says developer NeoAct. “We think that the launch in the Western market will be an important milestone for our game and we look forward to getting feedback from the Western player base.”

In Chaos Heroes Online, nothing is truly won until the fight is over. With fast-paced fluid battles which dive straight into the action in every match, powerful heroes and new map mechanics, Chaos Heroes Online provides an experience close to the roots of the MOBA genre. Every player has the chance to turn the game around until the end of battle, motivating players to fight their hardest until the very end. Unexpected moves from the opposing team call for quick strategic adaptation, emphasizing the importance of each player's skills.

Chaos Heroes Online will be free-to-download and free-to-play when it opens its arenas this fall. Players can sign up for the beta on the official site and check out new heroes, content, assets, and features on social media: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google+.
