Crownfall multi-act update live for Dota 2, plus a new comic

By - | Views: 26,138

Valve just released a big new update for Dota 2 with Crownfall, which not only includes a new comic to read but also what they call The Markets of Midgate. This is the first act of an ongoing story event.

From the update page:

The Markets of Midgate is just the first act of an ongoing four-act narrative that will span the next few months. You'll be able to play through new acts as soon as they become available, but you can also move through the adventure at your own pace — the introduction of a new act won't close off an earlier one.

Which means you can take as long as you like exploring every possible path, challenge and secret in Act I. And as much as there is to find, this event's just getting started. Crownfall will keep expanding as it unfolds over the coming months, with each new act bringing its own story, characters, a unique overworld map and all-new rewards. There might even be a surprise or two along the way.

What you get is this special new overworld map to explore the area of Skywrath, and as you play games with various characters you obtain different tokens. You use these tokens to unlock paths through the overworld map to progress through the story and earn rewards. It's free for everyone, but you can also pay $14.99 to get the Midgate Pathfinder Pack to give you more places to explore with sidequests, more stories and more rewards.

There's also various new cosmetic packs released you can buy. The second part of the story is due out mid-May, with the other two acts not dated yet.

You can read the comic on the Dota 2 website.

I don't play Dota because it's an online game. Here's hoping that now Valve will turn their attention to Half-Life3

Hopefully they won't lose interest partway through, and leave it on a cliffhanger...

Be hard to tell when they do . . . did they drop it, or is it just "Valve time"?
