The Dota 2 Steam store listing has been flooded with negative reviews following the reveal of the Half-Life 2: Episode 3 story plot. The plot was published by former Half-life 2 scriptwriter Marc Laidlaw.


The text was published on Laidlaw's personal website yesterday. The text is a modified version of a part of the original Half-Life 2: Episode 3 plot. Important names, genders, races and events have been slightly altered, likely to avoid legal issues.
