Dota Underlords Officially Launching on February 25
Valve's Dota themed auto-battler, Dota Underlords, finally leaves early access on February 25.
Dota Underlords, Valve’s Dota themed auto battler, launched on Steam in June 2019. Ever since then its been in an early-access state, running a “beta season”. Over that time Valve has expanded the game’s reach, making it available mobile devices through both the App Store and Google Play Store. This long beta-phase has undoubtedly hurt the game’s active player numbers. Today Dota Underlords had a peak of 12,000 players on Steam. Although a solid number, that puts it under other Valve games Counter-Strike and Left 4 Dead 2, both of which launched over a decade ago at this point.
Thankfully, Valve has announced that Dota Underlords season 1 will officially launch on February 25. On the Dota Underlords update notes, Valve shared that “this will be our last major update before we come out of Early Access and ship Season 1. The team is now heads down adding features, creating content, and polishing UI. With Season 1, Underlords will introduce new content with City Crawl, new rewards with a full Battlepass, and a new meta with a Hero / Item rotation. Oh, and we have a date – Dota Underlords Season 1 is shipping February 25th.”
Along with finally launching its first competitive season, it looks like there is going to be an influx of new content coming in Dota Underlords. Hopefully, this announcement and the launch of season 1 will encourage more people to give Underlords a shot.
