Dota 2 Reborn Arrives On Linux And Mac OS X Ahead Of Schedule

Dota 2 Reborn, the Dota 2 game remade with the Source 2 engine, has finally landed on the Linux platform, along with a ton of changes and improvements. It's still a Beta release, but that doesn't really matter.

The original version of Dota 2 stayed quite a while in the Beta stages, but that is quite normal, especially for multiplayer games. In fact, Dota 2 is a huge title and many working parts, so the developers have to make sure that they don't ruin the experience by prematurely releasing just the game. The only unexpected news about the release of the Dota 2 Reborn remake was that the Linux and Mac OS X platforms were not supported at launch, but that has changed now.

You have to keep in mind that Dota 2 is among the most played titles on Steam, at any given time, so there are quite a few players out there that will certainly feel and react to any major change. It's a lot of responsibility on Valve's shoulders, but they are also in it to make money.

Dota 2 Reborn arrives on Linux with a patch

The developers provided only a hint that the Linux and Mac OS X version for Dota 2 Reborn would land by the end of the month, but it seems to have happened earlier than expected. They just pushed a new patch for the game and added Linux and Mac OS X support as the main features.

The developers also said that some bugs with non-QWERTY keyboard layouts have been fixed, familiars are no longer visible in FoW, support has been added for a wider range of bindable keys, the Ember Spirit voice has been fixed, and many more fixes have been implemented. You can check all of them in the full changelog below.

If you download Dota 2, you will have to check the Dota 2 Reborn entry in the DLC tab in order to get the new addition. It's a 6GB+ download, so it might take a while.
