Dota 2 is an official follow-up to the Warcraft III custom map Defense of the Ancients. It is an "Action RTS" where players control a Hero unit and engage enemy players using their Heroes' unique abilities. Valve is collaborating with one of the primary contributors of the original DotA series.


Cloth simulation
Real-time cloth simulation is one of two new features introduced to Source.
Global lighting
An improved lighting system which (probably) allows for more vibrant, realistic lighting in the game world.
Steamworks integration
Building upon community-driven features from Team Fortress 2, players will be able to share strategy guides and coach newer players through Steamworks.
