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.
