A DotA 2 documentary is on the way
Today, GDC (aka, the Game Developers Conference) announced some of the big events and features that will be making an appearance at their 2014 conference, in San Francisco, next month. Among the waves of rpg, indie and free to play headlines was the announcement of a pro DotA 2 documentary movie, which is set to premiere at the Gamasutra-owned expo.
The documentary, titled, "Free to Play" will be a feature-length movie that delves deep into the pro-gaming scene, and specifically the rise of DotA 2.
"A million dollar tournament changed the landscape of the gaming world and for those elite players at the top of their craft, nothing would ever be the same again." boasts the teaser site, along with a count down for its big reveal on March 18th.
The documentary focuses mainly on three professional gamers; Danil "Dendi" Ishutin, Benedict "HyHy" Lim and Clinton "Fear" Loomis, as they boldly step into the developing world of eSports, in the run up to DotA 2's famed, "The International", which in 2011 famously hosted its first million-dollar tournament at Gamescom, Cologne.
The movie itself has been produced and backed by DotA 2's mmo masterminds, Valve, so will undoubtedly be exclusively about the DotA 2 scene, and won't extend to the rest of the eSports scene, but regardless, it's looking great.
