Today, Valve has announced the much anticipated DotA 2 which is said to be the most played game in the world! However, the press release on the game was short and we don’t have an lot of details but we know for sure in 2011 you will be able to own it on PC and Mac.
Dota 2 promises to take the unique blend of online RTS and RPG action that has made Dota popular with tens of millions of gamers and expand upon it in every way. Valve has also decided to trademark the name “DotA” which many gamers are “surprised that [Valve has] decided to try to trademark the DotA name, because it goes against what [they] and others believe DotA means to the community”
Although, Riot Games even counter-filed for the DotA trademark, pledging “to protect the work that [original DotA creator] Eul, Guinsoo and dozens of other modders have done to create the game,” adding, “if we were to obtain the trademark, we would keep the game and the DotA name freely available to the mod community.”
Let us know what you think of this! Is this the big news you were hoping to hear from Valve?
