The long-speculated Dota 2 Store can no longer be pegged as a speculation, given the fact that it is now open (in the beta version of Dota 2).
Recently, an update patch (or a new patch, call it what you may) had been released and distributed for Dota 2 beta, with the Dota 2 Store being one of the update’s more stellar highlights. It allows for the creation of customized characters, which is somewhat similar to the TF2 Store. The difference between the two though, stands as: the Dota 2 Store is better!
The beta update is also announced to be free-to-play, and that no payable requirements are necessary for calling in heroes. The store, works via two modes, through a payment system and/or through transactions done with the use of battle points which are earned during gameplay sessions, which basically pegs it on similar online-game store modes, norms and conventions.
But as standard as the update’s purchase/currency modes are, one nifty thing about the update is that it allows for collaboration between community members, given that it highlights support for the contribution of pieces, a feature which many players have looked for in a game of Dota 2’s class.
Currently on beta, Dota 2 is reported to go live within one or two months, and as the update patch showcases nifty add-ons and updates, it promises to be one awesome game title, as noted by beta testers who’ve been lucky enough to give the beta version a go.
