Cheats and Walkthroughs
Dota 2, Valve's upcoming action-RTS game follow-up to Warcraft 3's popular Defense of the Ancients mod, is going the free-to-play route, a press release confirms. The Dota Store is also now officially live, representing what creator and design lead IceFrog says is "a big part of our final push to launch."
In an undeniably shrewd move, fans who want to get in on the ongoing Dota 2 beta right now can head over to the store and purchase the Early Access Bundle for $39.99. In addition to receiving full sets of items for the Sven and Axe characters, buyers will also be granted access to the Dota 2 beta. A shrewd move on Valve's part to say the least, offering an option to buy into the beta now rather than waiting for the full, free launch later this year.
Valve boss Gabe Newell previously confirmed plans to go free-to-play with Dota 2, but with some sort of "twist." This Early Access Bundle is likely that twist, or part of that twist. Buy now or play later.
