Dota 2 now available for Mac and Linux. Let the world domination continue


Earlier this month Dota 2 was finally unleashed on the world (well, for all two people who weren’t in the beta). Still, there were still three other potential players Valve needed to grab – those folk playing Mac and Linux. With an update pushed out last night, bringing the game to both platforms, those final three were mopped up.

Now penguins and fruitarians can all play together with the PC-ites. You can pick up the relevant copy of Dota through Steam.
