Valve has launched an early access program for their upcoming free to play MOBA game DOTA 2. For the small sum *clears throat* .. of $39.99 USD you too can gain early access to the game as well as a collection of in game items.
“The opening of the Dota Store is a big part of our final push to launch,” Valve said in their press release sent out to promote the launch of the online store.
I am not exactly sure how well this will be received by the community. At the time of writing no details where available surrounding what items were included with the early access pass and whether or not they will carry over to the final game, although this is presumably the case. When we tried to access the DOTA 2 store we were presented with an error. Why not try for yourself?
