Is Valve Bringing DOTA 2 To Gamescom?

Gamescom, the biggest video game party in the world, strikes next month but it's not too soon to start digging in to what we might be seeing at the biggest blending of beer, sausage and video games in the world.

Over on the Gamescom's official site they've got a list up of who's going and what they'll be showing. Well, sort of. We've got a list of what sorts of games the companies going will be showing.

In the cast of Valve, they say they'll be showing off a strategy game. That rules out everything we know that the company is working on besides DOTA 2, the defence of the ancients game the developer announced last year.

The PC-centric strategy game would be a great fit at Gamescom, a show that promotes the heck out of PC games.

We've reached out to Valve for comment and will update when they reply.


    Really interested in seeing this in action - I wounder if anything can stop the League of Legends juggernaut at this point

      i hope it kicks riot in the butt. Maybe then they'll finally do some work that isn't more champions.

      Think HoN will lose a lot of players, but LoL has less to fear i think

        In all honesty I hope the LoL players stay where they are, we don't need anymore downs syndrome entering the RTS field.

    This game is going to be massive. The DotA community still powers on despite more technologiclly advanced entries into the genre ala HoN and LoL.

    Once this comes out the entire existing DotA community will shift over and im pretty sure that with valve's production values and backing it will win over a few (most) of HoN and LoLs existing customer base.

      HoN and LoL aren't "technologically advanced" entries in the genre. We HAD a technologically advanced entry -it was called Demigod, it had graphics almost on the level of Crysis- but it failed utterly. UTTERLY. That suggests that technology simply isn't important in this genre- what matters is accessibility, balance and variety.

    there sure will be sausage.

    I don't care, just release HALF-LIFE 3 DAMN IT!

      Our bodies aren't ready for HL3 just yet.

    I'm honestly more interested in Blizzard DOTA... cos I already own Starcraft 2.
