Dota 2-mod får nyt liv som action-RPG: Roshpit Champions 2 på vej til Steam

Standalone action RPG based on a popular Dota 2 mod

Before becoming one of the biggest Steam games ever, Dota 2 started life as DotA (Defence of the Ancients), a Warcraft 3 mod for the beloved Blizzard strategy game. Now, the cycle of life continues, as one of the most popular mods for the Valve MOBA finds new life as a standalone action RPG. Roshpit Champions 2 takes the core of the original mod project and builds it out into a comprehensive new ARPG packed with class variety and build potential.

Character variety and swift leveling experience

A “totally reimagined sequel” to the hugely popular Dota 2 mod, Roshpit Champions 2 is an action RPG that focuses on fast-paced, rewarding leveling, striking that midpoint between the speedy character building of a Dota match and the more long-term decision making of games like Diablo. Its name is a cheeky nod to Dota 2 superboss Roshan, the deadly beast that holds the powerful Aegis of the Immortal (and that delicious cheese).

Following in the footsteps of the series it came from, Roshpit Champions 2 offers plenty of character choice, with 30 classes to choose from, each with a unique skill set. There’s melee options for those who love to dive headfirst into the fray, ranged attackers to pester your opponents from a safe distance, and even support classes offering a range of heals and buffs if you’re looking to play with friends in online co-op.

New features and release information

Developer PM Studios says it wants to focus on a swift leveling experience with minimal grind that offers “a rewarding journey without feeling like a job.” You’ll be able to upgrade your character using a passive tree grid, with the ability to use gear and skills across all classes to create a hero that feels distinct to you. You might even find some items that bestow you with particularly potent new skills to use.

Roshpit Champions 2 is coming to Steam. There’s currently no set release date, but you can wishlist it now if you want to stay up to date with when it becomes available.
