Like with Team Fortress 2, Valve could be adding a Horde mode-style multiplayer mode to Dota 2.
In the latest patch notes, Cyborg Matt has found files that suggest a wave-based, survival mode is coming to the popular multiplayer online battle arena.
The new map Holdout would feature nine rounds against couriers and a tenth against a new character Slithereen.
This could be the announcement Valve is teasing for next month’s International tournament.
A mode like that could certainly help new players adjust to the game’s mechanics.
Dota 2 is officially out now, after a lengthy beta period.
