Valve is expanding their line of PC games from pure FPS's. Today they announced the upcoming DotA 2, for which they hired Icefrog, creator and maintainer of the original DotA, and for which they patented the name "DotA".

This is the first of the 3 Big surprises Valve had planned for the next 12 months.

The first source, gameinformer.com, is pretty overloaded right now, but there's a thread on facepunch about it here. Check it out if you're interested, I think the HoN/LoL players here will want to read about it :)

EDIT:

Game Informer Article (good luck with the traffic): http://gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2010/10/13/dota-2-announced-details.aspx

RPS: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2010/10/13/valve-announces-dota-2/
Facepunch: http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?1013293-Dota-2-revealed

EDIT2:

It seems the game is pretty much a 1-to-1 remake of the DotA, with "new technology" around it, such as the Source Engine getting an upgrade with it, and a Valve-built community system (this one sounds pretty nice, actually). Still, rather disappointing to make a complete copy of the game - especially with already 2 DotA clones released. I'm pretty doubtful about the success of this - but hey, the artwork looks nice ;)

I feel like I'm having a conversation with myself. No one is really interested in this, right? Razz

lame surprise... and I wouldn't call this a surprise because everyone aware and up to date knew valve was up to something related to dota... I WILL RAGE SO MUCH IF VALVE DOESN'T ANNOUNCE HL2:EP3 AS ONE OF THE REMAINING SURPRISES... AS A MATTER OF FACT I'M RAGING ALREADY RROOOOOOOOOOOARR... valve, gabe newell, and bob kotick are the trollest of all trolls Mad

I've never played DotA and probably won't play this either, but I think many people like it so it's good news for them :)

Edit: But I do wonder if it will have hats  Shocked Of course anyone buying it will get a special hat in TF 2, that goes without saying.
