Following the huge Reborn Update last year, Dota 2 haemorrhaged a rather large number of players during September (nearly 100 000 or so). It was a short lived dip though it seems, because since then, the playerbase has been climbing onward and upward steadily, and has finally reached the significant 1 million peak player mark again.
With the Reborn update hitting Dota 2 a few weeks ago, you’d expect the playerbase for Valve’s MOBA to surge higher than ever. An update to bring Source 2 to the game, along with a whole new UI and a bunch of other cool tricks… who wouldn’t want to play that? A lot less people it seems, because the number of people diving into Dota 2 has dropped by a whopping 16%.
Dota 2 has received a massive overhaul. Grab the update now, and expect a ton of improvements to Valve’s popular MOBA!
The Reborn beta has been around for a good few months now, giving Valve ample time to tinker around and tune up the future Dota 2 engine. Have you been holding out on trying it out? You won’t have a choice for much longer it seems, because it looks like Reborn will be officially launching this week.
The new Tomb Raider reboot is one of the very best action games in recent memory.
