S2 Games, the studio behind Heroes of Newerth, has announced the new game that they are working on.
Strife is said to revolve around its community and put a high emphasis on storytelling using a layered backstory to "further connect players with the heroes they choose". That backstory starts with the invasion of the Dharkwave which are the harbingers of darkness. Prophecy holds that their arrival means catastrophe upon the world. Strife comes in as players fighting this upcoming darkness.
