Dota 2 Will Finally be Released this Summer

By   /   3 years ago

After more than three years of development, the day of release is finally coming! Valve has confirmed that Dota 2 will be released completely free to play this summer, before The International 3 (which begins on the 7th of August at the Benaroya Hall in Seattle).

This will be a release for North America and Europe. As for the other regions: a week ago Nexon had already announced the South Korea launch in this year’s Fall, there already has been done a lot of work for the China release, but it still hasn’t been announced and there isn’t any kind of details revealed for the South-East Asia release yet.

Dota 2, even on its beta state, already has achieved some milestones in the world of gaming, such as being the most played game on the Steam platform, one of the most watched game on TwitchTV and going to host the offline tournament with the biggest prize pool ever (The International 3).

Getting a key to play the game could be done with minimal effort but now with the public release it will become a true free to play game, and its growth is sure to continue!

The elusive Pedro is the man from Portugal, currently living in the big city of London, who reports on all the e-sports shenanigans for us, so that you can keep up with what's going on in the competitive gaming world. Not one to shy away from the competitive scene, Pedro likes a few e-sports games himself, most notably Valve's Dota 2.
