Dota 2 hits PC and Mac in 2011 by way of Valve

The fact that Valve is making a follow-up to Defense of the Ancients, a ridiculously popular mod for Warcraft III that has sort of developed into its own genre, isn’t the crazy part. No, it’s that “the gameplay itself is remaining almost entirely untouched.”

What’s more, “DotA-Allstars‘ roster of 100+ heroes is being brought over in its entirety.” Game Informer, who has the exclusive reveal, describes it as being the same DotA you know and love, but with improvements where it really counts.

I haven’t even finished reading GI’s article yet, as it’s quite long. I figured you’d rather have me spread the word sooner than later, so that’s what I’m doing. Go read it, come back, and discuss.
