Since its release eight years ago, Dota 2 has become one of the biggest MOBA games in the esports arena. Of course, part of the reason for its huge success is down to its addictive gameplay and the fact that it gives you much more access to in-game content than you get in most other free games, but more than that, there’s the 122 playable heroes with their own unique backstories.
There’s a lot of lore to Dota 2 and it’s a fun world to lose yourself in. If this side of the game always appealed to you, you may be happy to hear that Dota 2: The Comics Collection is now 30% off in the last of the Cyber Monday Amazon deals (and 26% off in the UK).
Made in collaboration between Valve and Dark Horse, this collection brings together eight premier comics in print-form for the first time. This is an opportunity to dive deeper into the best Dota 2 heroes, giving you an insight into the origin of the Ancients and the world around them.
If you’re starting to buy gifts for the holiday season and know somebody who absolutely adores Dota 2, then this could make a really good present for them. With Valve having been directly involved with the creation of these comics, you know that it’s going to be true to the source material as well, rather than one of those pieces of tie-in media that take huge liberties with the canonical lore.
What helps to make this collection even more appealing is the fact that the different issues use different art styles. Different artists have interpreted the Terrene Plane in different ways, giving each of the comics a distinctive feel and personality.
If you’re interested in buying the Dota 2: Comics Collection while it’s on offer, make sure you don’t wait too long, as we’re into the final day of the Cyber Weekend promotions on Amazon. Check out our Cyber Monday hub for more great deals.
