Coming off the gaming goodness that was “Portal 2,” fans of Valve games can’t help but look forward to the next game from the respected development company.
And Valve’s next game looks to be a gamer’s game for sure. The real-time strategy/role-playing game “Defense of the Ancients 2” (aka "DOTA 2) is due to launch on PC and Mac later this year. And as the Gamecom video game trade show got underway Tuesday, Valve released the first-ever trailer to fan the flames of excitement for it.
The trailer — done entirely in some seriously eye-grabbing CGI — doesn’t seem to reveal much about what the game itself will look like. But it’s a whole lot of fun to watch.
