The much anticipated successor to the Defense of the Ancients will be out this fall according to voice-actor John Patrick Lowrie known for his voice-over for the Sniper in Team Fortress 2.
Among other heroes mentioned by Lowrie on a podcast (around the 32 min mark), he has also done voice-overs for characters he described as “Ice Spirit”, “Ultimate Devil guy” “Martial Arts Mystic guy” and two other he could not recall.
We will let your creativity run wild in figuring out who those heroes he mentioned might be. Drop in a comment to let us know.
With all of this being very much in sync with the expected date for DotA 2 being a Q4 release this year, gamescom might gives us more information if not a live demo itself.
Valve has also recently confirmed that DotA 2 is going to be soon available on their newly revamped content system on Steam.
