Blizzard DOTA, the developer’s take on the MOBA genre spawned from its own mod tools, is Blizzard’s wish-fulfilment for some kind of fighter game.

Blizzard not only debuted a trailer for DOTA at BlizzCon yesterday, but it has offered up a few extra details on a game it’s been rather quiet about since it was announced at BlizzCon 2010.

Remember Blizzard DOTA? It was announced long ago, in the far reaches of last year, during BlizzCon. And then…? Silence. Other StarCraft II mods came and went, but DOTA took its bounty of beloved Blizzard heroes and faded into obscurity. Well, until now, obviously. Otherwise, this would be a really disappointing article.

Feel like a little zombie survival? Some match-three action? A cook-off? Hit up the multiplayer tab in StarCraft II today and you’ll have something to do besides curse other players’ unit spam. Blizzard has made three of its Blizzcon-revealed custom maps available as an opt-in beta.

Interview – StarCraft II’s Kaeo Milker on multiplayer cheating, Real ID, Activision, the E-sport stigma, tons more
StarCraft II finally dropped into the hands of more than three million eager fans this summer, and Heart of the Swarm probably won’t see the light of day until long after we’ve locked horns with an actual race of hiveminded aliens. So, in the meantime, why even bring the game to BlizzCon? What’s left to talk about?
Tons, as it turns out. This year, Blizzard took the wraps off four brand new games it’s developing within StarCraft II – each of which look equal parts excellent and bizarre. Oh, and let’s not forget the “waves and waves” of free content that will continue to zerg rush the game until Heart of the Swarm finally comes out. Also, cheating! That’s always fun to deal with. And what about the fallout from the forum tweak that was heard around the world, Real ID?
We sat down with game director Kaeo Milker to discuss all of the above topics and more. Also puns, briefly. Read the full thing after the break!

We played Blizzard DOTA. It’s hilarious and fun and delightful. We rarely use the word delightful. This is a Big Deal.
So we were both saddened and excited when Blizzard talked about the StarCraft II spin-off during its StarCraft II and Battle.net press conference earlier today.
