Mobile Online Battle Arena "Dota 2" (2013)
A modern take on the MOBA that started it all, Dota 2 brings back all the heroes, mechanics, features and designs that made the original so great. With its recent addition of Underlord, Dota 2 has managed to bring back every hero from the original. While DotA 2 may retain nearly everything that made the original so great, new features like matchmaking,
hero descriptions, match spectating, voice chat, and a graphical overhaul has kept the game fresh. For those looking for something other than classic mode, Dota 2’s new custom game overhaul has allowed new community-made maps, game modes, and so much more to keep the entire community entertained for quite a long time.
Dota 2 is a free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game developed and published by Valve Corporation. The game is the stand-alone sequel to Defense of the Ancients (DotA), which was a community-created mod for Blizzard Entertainment's Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its expansion pack, The Frozen Throne. Dota 2 is played in matches between two teams of five players, with each team occupying and defending their own separate base on the map. Each of the ten players independently controls a powerful character, known as a "hero", who all have unique abilities and differing styles of play. During a match, players collect experience points and items for their heroes to successfully battle the opposing team's heroes in player versus player combat. A team wins by being the first to destroy a large structure located in the opposing team's base, called the "Ancient".
Development of Dota 2 began in 2009 when IceFrog, the pseudonymous lead designer of the original Defense of the Ancients mod, was hired by Valve to create a modernized sequel. Dota 2 was officially released for Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux-based personal computers via the digital distribution platform Steam in July 2013, following a Windows-only public beta phase that began two years prior. The game initially used the original Source game engine until it was ported to Source 2 in 2015, making it the first game to use it. The game has also been updated with various other features since release, such as support for virtual reality (VR) and a data-providing and achievement-based monthly subscription system.
