I don't know if many of you know about this, but Valve has been working on a new game, DOTA 2. This marks another occasion in which Valve is creating a sequel to a game that began as a mod.

Along with a trailer, Valve announced that the game will be unveiled in full at the 2011 GamesCom in Cologne, Germany, in which a DOTA 2 tournament with a prize of 1 Million dollars will be held. They're really going all out with this one.

I think this will be VERY interesting. So far Valve has made nothing but first person shooters, and DOTA was a mod of WarCraft 3. It'll be nice to see a change of pace with this one.

A game that isn't in first person? Shield your eyes!

On a serious note the trailer is nicely put together. I can't wait to see what it brings to the competition in comparison with the other MOBA games. LoL has Dominion, cartoon styled characters and is easy to pick up and play. HoN is very dark and gritty and is very true to the original Warcraft 3 mod in terms of it's characters, enviroment and play style.

I can't wait to see what DOTA 2 brings to the table now.

Also, on the DOTA 2 website they're throwing out beta keys. My friend just got one and is downloading the DOTA 2 beta onto his computer. So he gets to play it before it's out! D:

Well, until they send out another batch of beta key/download/things.

Urg. I'm not a fan of this beta thing. The main issue with DotA was getting in. Starting out was almost impossible, and now with dota 2 some people get a head start.

As a very active League of Legends player, I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Valve is my absolute favorite developer and I know they will do it right!

As of right now the League of Legends cash shop is kind of awkward. I'm hoping Valve will integrate something similar to the TF2 Shop for the game. That would be AWESOME! :D
