Spice up your DOTA 2 sessions with a $10 DLC pack containing an alternate voice for the Announcer and Mega-Kills Announcer. This one’s a little bit special though – it’s the voice of Bastion’s narrator, the indie dungeon-crawler’s most recognisable attribute. Rucks has something to say about each and every character the MOBA offers.

DOTA 2′s Australian servers are just a few weeks away, Valve’s Milton Ngan, a likely sympathetic New Zealand-born staffer, revealed on the MOBA’s developer forum.
