Well, original for 'Dota' anyway.
A new character for 'Dota 2' will be making his way into the MOBA, as Valve announced the addition of the Monkey King at The International 2016.
Those watching the 'Dota 2' tournament were treated to a reveal video for the upcoming character based on the figure of Sun Wukong from Chinese literature. The Monkey King will be the first character in 'Dota 2' that was not included in the original 'Defense of the Ancients' mod.
Also announced was the upcoming character Underlord, an adaptation of the original mod's Pit Lord that is scheduled to be included in the game August 23.
If you're curious as to what this announcement means to the 'Dota 2' community, you can watch the live reaction to the reveal at the tournament. You can catch the full trailer (without community applause) below.
