After spending two years in Beta, Valve has finally made second iteration of the Defense Of The Ancient (DOTA) available for download through its delivery platform Steam.
In anticipation of the influx of gamers who wish to play/download the game, the developer decided to continue with the queuing system that they’ve implemented even when the game was still in beta.
How this works is that users can already extend their intent to play/download the game now, but will have to wait in the “Launch Queue” to be given access to it. The notification will come in a form of email that will be sent out once the player’s turn to download is up.
Over time, Valve is planning to increase the allowed number of users who are allowed to download and/or play the game at a time. This means that the wait time for your number to be called out will decrease as they’re servers capacity increase.
For now, the game is only available for Windows users, but it’s been said that the Linux and Mac versions of the title will follow soon. Download link can be found at the source link below.
If you want to reserve a number to download the game, we strongly suggest that you do it ASAP while the queue is still not that long. The last time we checked, it was around 2600. While you’re waiting, here’s a short trailer to get you even more pumped up.
