DOTA 2 Gets God Of War- Mars!
The God Of War, which is Mars arrives in DOTA 2. The game already has an expansive roster and now Mars had been added to “burn down the pantheon of the old age and build a new empire atop the ashes of his kin.”
Mars is huge, compared to his enemies, he tower’s over them. He as a spear and a shield and is tagged as a melee, carry, initiator, disabler and durable. He does have a lot of roles to play, but he, of course, is a god, so surely he can handle all of them.
Mar’s abilities include the Spear of Mars, God’s Rebuke, Bulwark, and Arena of Blood. You can see all these in the video below by DotaCinema:
You may not know it yet but Mars is actually the very first hero that has a shield and uses it properly. You might also argue that Dragon Knight has one, but he uses it to bash or stun his enemies. While Mars actually deflects damages using it.
Another interesting thing about Mars is his ulti where he actually gets to impale his enemies. You can check out the complete list of Mars’ skills here.
As with other previous heroes, Mars could start out strong to be rebalanced later, we will find that out soon.
DOTA 2 is free to play on Steam, it can be played on PC, Mac, and Linux.
