dota 2

Valve VP of Marketing, Doug Lombardi, recently confirmed the company will be offering a free to play (F2P) game in order to compete with other F2P games on Steam. French gaming site Barre de vie - that's French for "Health bar," by the way - recently interviewed Lombardi and, when asked if the developers of Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2, and Portal 2 would be entering the F2P market, he gave a short and sweet "Yes."

If we were to speculate and entertain these wildly imaginative minds of ours, we'd have to guess that the Valve F2P game will be... Half-Life 2: Episode 3! Ha, just kidding. And now I've made myself sad. Truth be told, it's likely to be Dota 2. Which for those who don't know, is a spiritual sequel to the Warcraft 3 custom scenario, Defense of the Ancients. This scenario inspired League of Legends, a F2P game Valve will be competing against with Dota 2. It's like a big ol' love triangle.

With Gordon Freeman sitting on the sidelines... *sniff*
