Valve has finally announced that Dota 2 is coming out in 2011, after working with IceFrog for about over a year.

You'll also notice that it is using Valve's Source engine, which means you'll need a decent computer to be able to play this. It will be available for steam most likely, since it was announced there first.

More info here: http://gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2010/10/13/dota-2-announced-details.aspx

Yes
I always loved dota and I play HoN these days just for the lack of lag

Can't wait for this.
Especially when Icefrog is working with valve. Makes it more of a sequel compared to clones like LoL and HoN

Yesssssssss I am waiting for this game harddddddd.

Also, HoN did a very smart thing knowing Dota 2 was coming, they made it so you pay 30$ only 1 time payment, otherwise if they made it a monthly fee as soon as Dota 2 comes out they lose all the customers...

actually.. the original DotA is League of legend, which is created by Guinsoo. Guinsoo was the creator of dota, and later on he hand it over to icefrog and make the game call League of Legend (LoL)

LoL was created on October 2009 when DotA was created on 2003 using Warcraft 3 Reign of chaos map editor and it was made by Eul. Then when The Frozen Throne came out Guinsoo grabbed DotA and made it DotA All stars, which is the name it runs by now, just that most people know it by DotA alone.

But how about game play?

Q: Don’t you think you should make a lot of changes to the gameplay? (by Robert)
A: Significant changes would not necessarily make it a better game. There are countless features we are building around the game that will make the experience a much better one. The gameplay itself, though, has always evolved step by step, and it will continue with that methodology. We consider this a long term project, in the same way DotA has always been. We want to provide a quality experience and not just change for the sake of change. You’ll naturally see additions and improvements to the game as time passes, but it would be a natural progression aimed at improving the game for the players and not for other arbitrary reasons. Valve and I strongly believe that the player focused development process the game has gone through is what will allow us to continue making the best decisions with regards to where we spend our development time.

Q: Will you keep loyal to casting times like Torrent and will it still be possible to do the advanced tricks, like animation canceling, fog of war tricks we’ve learned, etc? (by Lycan)
A: Yes, those mechanics are implemented. They are a very integral part of the game and it wouldn’t feel the same without them.

Q: Are the upgraded graphics going to be distracting? New graphics are great, but when there’s too much, you can’t see what’s going on anymore. (by Lycan)
A: Gameplay is definitely the most important aspect, everyone on the team understands this concern. The number one priority is making sure players can quickly and easily tell what’s happening on the screen at all times. Fine tuning the right visual balance with each ability, effect, hero, etc., will be an ongoing process as the game is playtested and we get your feedback. A clean and understandable visual representation of the action is important to everyone from experienced players, spectators, to new players

Q: Are you going to do anything to make it easier for new players to get into the game and feel welcome? (by Arvin)
A: Some of what makes it hard, in current DotA, stems from the lack of services around the game that can help foster a better relationship between players and that it’s hard for players to be matched up with equally skilled allies and opponents. Things like tutorials, matchmaking, AI bots, identity, coaching, and community contribution will go a long way to making it easier for new players to fit in.

Q: What hotkey setup will exist in DotA 2? (by Stany Kaff)
A: We have a few default templates that cover the most popular configurations, but you’ll also be able to fully customize them to your liking. You can customize it on a global level or on a per hero basis if you choose. The hotkey configuration will include everything, not just heroes and items, but also how you navigate in the game, control the camera, autocast, set control groups, etc. Your settings are saved to your identity online, so if you go to a LAN center you will not have to reconfigure your keys.

Q: Can I still play with my friends from America even though I am European? (by Adam Mosley)
A: Yes, a lot of people have friends in different regions and we want to allow them to easily interact. One of the things that makes DotA special is how big the community is, so we will do our best to make it easy to connect and communicate with one another.

Q: How are you going to handle delay and lag between players? (by Alex)
A: This is something we are putting a lot of time and resources into. Minimizing delay to servers, along with optimizing networking code, is very important to being able to enjoy DotA on both a casual and competitive level. We’re expanding the Steam infrastructure around the world so the matchmaking service for DotA 2 is able to provide the lowest possible ping wherever you are playing. There will also be some uniquely located servers that are optimized regionally for handling longer distance matches.

This is all that there is about multiplayer, I dont know how familiar you are with Heroes of Newerth, which is a Dota-based game, there is no such thing as LAN, only Multiplayer online, you can play 5v5 against your own friends in the same cyber, but theres just no LAN option, as there used to be in Warcraft 3, I am not quite sure about what DotA 2 is gonna come with, but I think a regular multiplayer online should be fine.

LAN was only possible because it was using the Warcraft 3 engine (Original Dota).

As for HoN, unless the person programmed anything for LAN/offline mode (Which I doubt since you have to pay for an account, then there won't be a LAN.

As for Dota 2, I will surely doubt it. Since it's going to be on Steam, which requires internet access to actually log in.
