First official Dota 2 screen revealed

As screenshots for Dota 2 are being leaked all over the place, it seems that Valve has decided to get in on the action, celebrating 900 Twitter followers with a brand new, confirmed in-game screenshot of the Doom Bringer.

This week, Dota 2 is being played in a million dollar tournament at Gamescom. Here's a few of the Chinese screens that were leaked over the weekend, which prompted the official reveal.

The developers have kept this one tightly under wraps, but it seems that - just a few days before the game's big reveal - a Chinese fansite has gotten its paws on a handful of sneaky images, which it's promptly published for the world to gawk at.

Of course, Valve is remaining tight-lipped as ever the topic, but we're hearing rumours that the images are from an early Dota 2 build and, of course, not necessarily representative of the finished product. Grain of salt, as always, until we see anything official.

I'm sure I'm not the only one, but looking at these screenshots, I was overwhelmed with the sense that I was looking at a new game from Blizzard. Given the pedigree behind Dota 2, a sequel to a Warcraft 3 mod, this isn't too surprising. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, and with the amazing success we've seen enjoyed by the original, the Dota formula certainly ain't broke.

UPDATE:
...and because we love you, here's some moving pictures of the game, fresh from Valve ahead of Gamescom.

(Screens first brought to our attention via VG247, thanks also to Dota2.cn, for doing the dirty work for us.)
