Valve’s Dota 2 is Free-to-Play

Valve has confirmed that its upcoming online action game Dota 2 (Defense of the Ancients 2) will be free-to-play with the help of an online store.

Customers can play the game without paying anything at all, however they will have to pay to change the look of in-game characters. The Dota Store will offer an extensive range of virtual apparel and accessories. The developer also hopes that players will create and trade their own items – similar to Team Fortress 2.

Players can also gain immediate access to the game’s beta by purchasing a bundle of items from the store.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
