Dota 2's Latest Update Adds Two New Heroes, Reworks Five Old Ones

Valve has just dropped their big Dota 2 patch for the year, titled Dueling Fates, and it's a doozy.

First, the update adds two new heroes. Pangolier is a carry who deals heavy amounts of physical damage with his Swashbuckle ability, as well as Heartpiercer, which slows a target and negates all of their armor. His ultimate lets him roll into a ball and damage enemies he runs into, and can ignore terrain when players use Shield Crash (which normal has Pangolier jump in the air to damage enemies) while in ball form. Dark Willow, meanwhile, is a support who focuses on controlling fights with a mixture of disabling spells, magic damage, and surivabiltiy. She is also the first hero with two separate Ultimate abilities, which are simultaneously available but cannot be used in tandom: Bedlam summons Dark Willow's companion, Jex, to deal damage to enemies near her, while Terrorize forces them to flee in terror. 

Several heroes also see major changes. Every talent tree has been redesigned, with plenty of new options for players to strategize with. Beastmaster, Broodmother, Tiny, Viper, Wraith King, Medusa, Morphling, Necrophos, Riki, Shadow Demon, Undying, and Vengeful Spirit have all undergone big changes, with the latter five given full reworks. Several other heroes have also received minor buffs and nerfs.

Kratos Avoids Fighting A Soul-Eater In New God Of War Trailer

The early 2018 release of God of War isn't too far away, and the latest trailer gives us another glimpse at the combat, as well as the beasts Kratos fights – or in some cases, doesn't fight.

At the beginning of the video below, you can see Kratos and his son avoid an encounter with a nasty-looking brute called a soul-eater. Of course, they can't dodge fights forever, and Kratos is soon bashing skeletal warriors with his ice axe and using objects in the environment (like a hanging lantern) to clear the way.

Sony saved a new trailer for The Last of Us Part II for the end of its Paris Games Week presentation, and what a finale it was.

The world is certainly still a grim place [Be Warned: There are some brutal scenes in the trailer below], with survivalist gangs turning everyone into a potential enemy and Infected always dangerous, but this new trailer seems to take things to a new level.

Latest Detroit: Become Human Trailer Tells A Short, Dark Story

Sony and Quantic Dream have dropped a new trailer for David Cage's upcoming choice-based narrative game, Detroit: Become Human. It highlighted another vignette of the android-versus-human conflict, albeit with a more intimate (and darker) tone.

The trailer centers on Kara (codename AX400), an android who returns to work as a maid for a family after a two-week break. As the trailer progresses, it's quickly apparent the father is abusive towards his daughter, Alice, and had previously broken Kara during an abusive episode (leading to the two-week break). As the trailer builds up to its climax, it cuts to a diagram of choices, showing the various ways the story could have played out.
