Valve Are Releasing A Game

It's true! The screenshot has probably already spoiled the surprise but, yeah, it's DOTA 2, a game that I already have installed on my PC and once had twenty invites for. Despite the access I have been granted to the long-running beta, the only things I really know about DOTA are the nuggets of information in RPS posts. For example, I know that a ridiculous number of people play every day but the League of Legends community still outnumbers them a billion to one. I also know that there's a tutorial and that it is a terrible tutor. Maybe that's one of the things that will be improved this summer when the beta becomes brave, truthful and unselfish, and transforms into a real game?

PC Gamer reckon the full release will precede super-tournament The International, which begins August 7th. Reckon I'll be good enough to win if I play the tutorial every day between now and then? Yeah. That'll probably do it.
