DotA 2 lore?
« on: March 13, 2011, 01:17:07 PM »
What do you think Valve will come up with for the storyline for Dota 2? Orcs, Humans and Scourge is out of the question since that is Blizzard IP. Looking at the concept art, it's definitely not in the Half Life or Team Fortress universe... something brand new?

I remember reading somewhere that Valve had started development on a fantasy game sometime back, which was never completed because they moved on to Left 4 Dead. Maybe they will be using the storyline from that for Dota 2?

Also, I'm looking forward to the hero introductions like in Team Fortress 2.

Let the discussions begin!

eh, im sure they'll cook up something for it
theres no scenario/story mode so technically everything is just arbitrary relations based on w/e he wants

or w/e the storyboard team wants
if the heroes are to talk to each other theres clearly going to be one though

Both. It's the general storyline of Dota 2. Like WC3 is based on the scourge invasion, history of Orcs and Humans etc - what will Dota 2 be?

Ofcourse Dota did! It was based on Scourge vs Sentinel!

HoN is based in the Savage universe and has its own lore.

Dota 2 *should* have a very unique storyline and history that goes with the game, especially since characters interact with other etc.
