Dota began as a user-made modification for Warcraft 3 and has grown into one of the most played online games in the world. Following in the tradition of Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat, Team Fortress, Portal, and Alien Swarm, Dota 2 is the result of Valve hiring the community developers who built the mod and giving them the chance to finally build a full product out of their idea with the help of a professional team of developers and artists at Valve.

As for the gameplay, it’s a little hard to describe. The camera is set in the traditional RTS perspective, but it wouldn’t be fair to call Dota an RTS. And while each hero starts at level 1, and many times hits the level cap of 25, it wouldn’t be fair to call it an RPG.

Lots of people have tried to assign various genre names to Dota, but we think Action RTS is probably the most descriptive. And while we don’t spend a lot of time trying to figure out what genre the game is inventing, we can’t stop playing it internally!

Roshan the Immortal has smashed his way into a labyrinth beneath his lair, driven to frenzy by the scent of the world's rarest cheese. In today's update, all Battle Pass owners are invited to follow his path and descend into the Underhollow, where a proving ground of teamwork and battle tactics awaits—along with a supply of Battle Points for those bold enough to seize them.

Party up with two friends or queue-met allies to navigate your way through this maze of monstrous hordes and vile traps. Work together to outwit and outlast the seven other teams each fighting to be the last group standing.

Each week you'll have new chances to earn Battle Points by winning a clash outright as the last team standing, killing any opponents during battle, or unearthing rare and valuable cheeses—such as the coveted Roshefort wheel. But remember: Roshan is on his own quest, and his frenzy is causing the Underhollow to collapse around him. You'll need to step quickly and choose your path wisely to have any hopes of escaping alive.
