If you’re getting a bit bored/tired of the current hero lineup in Valve’s Dota 2, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Valve has since announced a new hero that will be added to the game in the form of Mars, the god of war and first son of heaven. The character should already be live and playable in the game so it could be worth checking out if you haven’t done so already.

According to Valve, “Abandoning the callous ways of his past and embracing a new identity unburdened by the legacies of his father’s archaic pantheon, Mars has turned over a new spear. Vowing to tear down the remnants of the savage old world to build a new empire, Mars is at last ready to assume the true mantle of leadership over gods and men, a position he now realizes has been wasted for eons by the petty whims of Zeus.”

Based on the character’s page on the Dota 2 website, the character will come with four abilities: Spear of Mars; God’s Rebuke; Bulwark; and Arena of Blood, the character’s ultimate ability. It has been a while since Valve introduced a new playable hero to Dota 2 so this addition is more than a welcome one. In addition to the new character, Valve has also updated the character model for the Drow Ranger.
