Valve Announces Dota 2

RulerOf writes “Just over a year after hiring IceFrog, the lead developer of the wildly popular DotA Allstars mod for Warcraft III, and the speculation surrounding Valve’s recent trademark filing for the ‘DotA‘ name, Valve has officially announced Dota 2. Gameplay of Dota 2 is being ported ‘exactly’ from the current DotA Allstars and includes every hero, but vast improvements are being made to the game including VoIP, a coaching system, in-game rewards, and AI that takes over for disconnected players. Lastly, it all runs on top of the Source engine. (GameInformer’s website appears to be struggling right now though, as they had an exclusive on this story.)”
