This online gaming tournament kicks off the newly released PC and online multiplayer game Heroes of Newerth, winner of the Independent Games Festival's Audience Award at GDC 2010. The tournament starts on June 7, 2010, and is the latest in the ongoing Alienware Arena series presented by Alienware, Dell's premier PC gaming brand representing premium power and performance for gamers and technology enthusiasts alike.
