The new Dota 2 game coming from Valve for the PC and Mac promises to take the unique blend of online RTS and RPG action that has made Dota popular with tens of millions of gamers around the world.
Anyway, watch the video below for the Dota 2 trailer and try to identify the showcased heroes:
Dota 2 Official Trailer
As far as I can tell, I personally think most of the original Dota heroes are going to be preserved in Dota 2. I mean, the trailer just showed—in order of appearance—Traxex, Mogul Kahn, Stygwyr, Magina, Raigor, Sven, Mangix, Darkterror, Razor, Balanar, Pudge, Crixalis, Rylai Crestfall, Lina Inverse, Viper, and Knight Davion. And they were well presented too.
Dota 2 Gameplay Screenshots and Heroes List
This is the new Doombringer sprite at Valve's Dota 2 engine. As you can see, many aspects of the game has been retained including the map itself. Aside from boasting greater graphics, many existing features has also been improved for better gameplay. Come on, it won't be named Dota 2 for nothing.
And here's Dota 2's hero selection screen. I was an avid Dota player once, but I can't seem to remember all of it since the last time I played was like 4 years ago. But as far as I can tell, there are fewer heroes available at Dota 2.
I dunno how the guys over at Valve will remedy this, but for sure it will involve patches and downloads, hopefully for free.
And hey, if this thing clicks (which I'm sure it will), I'mma register for an account myself and play Dota 2.
FYI, for those who still don't know, Lina Inverse the Slayer from Dota and Lina from Dota 2 has been taken from Lina Inverse of the Slayers anime. For real. Of course, Valve just omitted the Inverse in Dota 2 to avoid potential copyright issues.
'Till my next installment.
P.S. Heroes of Newerth. Wait, what?
