The Dota 2 Reborn recording session


In the meantime, the developers have not forgotten about new models and Arcana items, but apparently it will take some more time. For now the chest will have to do but the changes are in good progress as the new model for Zeus looks quite different than the current Zeus. Take a look down below to see what Zeus could look like in the future.
