What is Dota 2?

Dota 2 is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game produced by Valve. It is a standalone game and follow up to Defense of the Ancients which is a modification for the Warcraft III game.

Dota 2 is a fantasy-style game consisting of two teams of five players. The teams occupy opposite ends of a map and compete to destroy each other’s bases. Players control characters known as ‘heroes’, who all have different abilities and can grow more powerful during the game. Dota 2 is complex and attracts gamers of all levels, including elite players who compete in global eSport tournaments for real prize money.

New players can learn how Dota 2 works and practice being different characters using the demo options. Players are also automatically matched according to experience level, to keep the game fair. Players can communicate in Dota 2 with preloaded text messages or voice chat, or choose to mute these features.
