    Valve Announces DOTA 2 Is Free To Play, DOTA Store Starts Selling Early Access Bundle

    It seems Valve is getting ever closer to the launch of Defence of The Ancients 2 (DOTA 2) as they have announced the game will indeed be free to play. That said the DOTA Store is now open for business so users can start customizing their heroes immediately, furthermore, users wanting in on the action now can purchase the DOTA 2 Early Access Bundle from the DOTA Store for $40. This bundle of items will let you get some nice items and early access to the game with the items carrying over from the beta to final release. As far as the item store goes Valve will stick to selling items created by themselves and gamers via the Steam Workshop and unlike other games all heroes will be available from the get go, as according to Valve "We believe restricting player access to heroes could be destructive to game design, so it's something we plan to avoid." Defence of The Ancients 2 is sheduled for a full release on the PC platform later this year with Valve hosting an international DOTA 2 Championship in Seattle, WA later this summer.

    Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today confirmed that Dota 2 will be free to play and announced the Dota Store in preparation for the game's release.

    It's good to see that valve has announced DOTA 2 free-to-play. I am also glad about the fact that purchases aren't gonna affect the performance of individual players, just hope that they tend to keep it this way.
