Mars can throw the spear and stick characters to the environment or use his shield to bash and stun enemies. How he will shake up the game's routine is yet to be seen, but as with every new addition to the line-up, time will tell how effective he is.
Mars, god of war and first son of heaven, has now joined the battle of the Ancients.
Abandoning the callous ways of his past and embracing a new identity unburdened by the legacies of his father’s archaic pantheon, Mars has turned over a new spear. Vowing to tear down the remnants of the savage old world to build a new empire, Mars is at last ready to assume the true mantle of leadership over gods and men, a position he now realizes has been wasted for eons by the petty whims of Zeus.

The game was released in 2013, so it's always nice to see the support for the game hasn't waned since then. You can read our review for the game from when it launched or read about how well the Dota 2 mod, Dota Auto Chess is doing.
