Watch out LoL! Valve has announced that DOTA 2, the sequel to the legendary DOTA map in Warcraft 3 will be coming out this summer! At this time there is no official release date, although it has been noted that it will be released in time for The International 3 tournament, to be held in Benaroya Hall in Seattle on August 7-11.
DOTA 2 Broadcaster David “GoDZ” Parker had this to say: “Dota 2 being officially released to the public acts as the next step for Valve in shipping the finished Dota 2 project. While anyone interested in obtaining a beta key and playing the game could have already done so with minimal work, having the ease of play that being public brings will make it a true free-to-play game in the ARTS/MOBA genre.”
Because it’s being developed by Valve,DOTA 2 will be quite the competitor withLoL. After all, both games are free to play, and feature a ton of different content that can be unlocked, either through playing the game or just using cash if there’s a particular person you want and don’t have the time or patience to wait to get. We can expect to see moreDOTA 2 updates in a week or so, when Valve releases more details.
