The makers of Half-Life, Team Fortress and Portal are taking popular Warcraft III mod Defense of the Ancients and making it their own. The man behind it all gets into the nitty-gritty of the all-new Dota in a new Q&A.
From the studio that brought us Half-Life, Portal and Team Fortress, the next big thing will be Dota 2. That's a new Defense of the Ancients game coming to PC and Mac in 2011.
Having hummed along quietly for around a year now since being picked up by Valve, IceFrog - developers of the popular "Defence of the Ancients Allstars" scenario for Warcraft III - seem to be making progress on their latest work.
