Two new heroes were announced for Dota 2 during The International, and you can play one right now.
Grimstroke and Mars were announced as new playable characters for Dota 2.
During The International this week, Grimstroke was made available to players as a new, ranged support hero. As you can see in the trailer, he wields a rather dangerous rebinding brush dipped in “profane ink.”
Mars will be added as a playable character in late 2018.
A card game based on Dota 2, Artifact, will also be released later this year in November.
