I’m sort of double-dipping here because Peter half-wrote this story earlier, but: Dota 2‘s Foreseer’s Contract update has launched, and Oracle is in.
This Dota 2 update brings with it lots and lots of stuff. There’s Oracle himself, obviously. There’s the Nemesis Assassin event Peter wrote about earlier. There’s also Phantom Assassin’s Manifold Paradox Arcana, new creep models, heroic effigies, a new treasure, a new victory-predicting item, and lots and lots of little fixes and changes and updates.
I’m not going to write it all up here because I’ve done that already, and Peter covered the Nemesis Assassin thing pretty well for someone who doesn’t actually play Dota 2. The patch is around 200mb (and another, smaller patch has just been released, presumably to hotfix a few newly-discovered issues) so it shouldn’t take too long to grab.
If that’s too much text for you, here’s the short version: literally every single fucking game of Dota 2 you play for the next week will have Oracle and Phantom Assassin in it.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
