Ahead of its official gamescom debut, Dota 2has gotten a trailer centered around the shopkeeper. There is, as you might expect, no gameplay footage in here. Although you'll be getting plenty of that this week during The International, so don't fret too much.
Once again, we're shown that Valve is talented at expanding narratives and backstories outside of its games. It seems like many of you were already on board for Dota 2, and I won't be surprised if this video is able to expand the size of that crowd.
