Valve's Working On Steam-Friendly DoTA

Defense of the Ancients

Ah voice actors, where would we be without them? Since they're actors, they want everyone to know what work they're doing, even if it means talking about a game that hasn't been announced yet. I'm sure when John St. John (known as the voice of Duke Nukem) tweeted about the new game that Valve is working on: "DoTA" (also known as "Defense of the Ancients").

"Had a great time in Seattle last week recording for DotA. The guys at ValveSoftware are awesome!"

A simple tweet, but that's all the world needed to know that Valve is working on a new "Defense of the Ancients" game. It's not totally out of left field, as the original developer of "DoTA," Icefrog, was already tapped to head up a project over at Valve.

In case you're unfamiliar, "Defense of the Ancients" is a hugely popular mod for "WarCraft 3," which blends RPG elements with tower defense to make for a unique spin on the strategy genre. The next "DoTA" game will likely be stand-alone, released by Valve through Steam. Beyond that, we can only guess, as Valve's certainly not talking.
