The lights are on
Dota 2 is getting a large update tomorrow that adds things like LAN support, new treasures, and the Portal Pack.
LAN play will allow up to 9 Dota-ers to play with connected computers. Weapon management is receiving an update, and a new game-type called Captain's Draft will be added. Purchasing the Portal Pack adds GLaDOS as an announcer, Aperture Science Wardcores, and a Portal HUD skin.
The First Blood update will be available tomorrow, September 23. You can learn more about it here. Check out our Dota 2 review here.

Super excited to pic up the Portal pack. LAN is almost essential for tournaments, so it's great that they're adding that too.
You had me at "GLaDOS as an announcer."
I'm personally most excited for the Captain's Draft mode. Should make pub matches more interesting.
What a sweet update captains draft, lan support, and best of all we may have us a 6.79 boss fight coming soon in standard ice frog tradition :) sweet stuff
My fantasies have been fully recognized now.
LAN?!? I don't even play Dota 2 and that sounds fun. I wish they did that for League of Legends.
AAAAAAAAAAAAH SO EXCITED!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. oooooh the fresh blood that I shall soon be feasting upon as I dance over the bodies of my fallen enemies while farm myself to fat proportions and murder people with supports. This shall be a good day....
