Valve’s popular MOBA title has switched from sign-ups to open access.
Valve Corporation has announced that multiplayer online battle arena or MOBA title Dota 2 is now available for all players, with the process of sign-ups having been set aside.
“Signups are no longer required to access the game, and we encourage everyone to join the 6.5 million active monthly users currently playing Dota 2. If you have a friend who hasn’t tried Dota 2 yet, be sure to take advantage of the new recruitment feature to get additional bonuses for both you and your friend,” according to the Dota 2 blog.
Till now, Dota 2 access was only provided via invites. Valve started out with the process of sign-ups in order to ensure that the game received healthy participation and that the infrastructure was in place to support the millions who would be engaged with it on a daily basis. The game is available for Linux, Mac and PC. Will you be hopping aboard the MOBA train? Let us know in the comments below.
