Developed and published by Valve, Dota Underlords was released as free-to-player in early access in June 2019. The game is an auto battler focusing on chess-based strategy. Its launch was a success as only after a few days of its early access release, Dota Underlords was downloaded by more than 1.5 million players worldwide. In addition to this, it even had 200,000 concurrent players on Steam.
Since its release, Valve has made various changes and improvements to the early access version. In fact, features such as a replay system, ranked matchmaking, daily challenges, rewards, and a battle pass, have already been added to the game. The best thing about it is that it features full cross-platform player between PC and mobile. Players can even start the game on one platform and then end it on another.
In the previous few weeks, players have been wondering when the game will finally get properly released. Until today, Valve didn’t provide any information regarded when they are going to release the game. But now, it has been confirmed that Dota Underlords is soon going to leave early access. That’s right, this was officially confirmed by Valve who has also shared some exciting new details about its launch.

Dota Underlords has been confirmed to get an official release. The developers made an announcement in which they talked about the game heading into its season one. It has been confirmed that the game will officially release on February 25, 2020 for all platforms, including Steam, Android, and iOS.

Valve has also decided to throw a launch party to celebrate the official release of their auto battler game. In fact, that launch party is going to be huge considering it will feature some of the best personalities of Dota 2. You can expect to see some big streamers such as Henrik “AdmiralBullDog” Ahnber and Janne “Gorgc” Stefanovski. In addition to this, you will also get to see desk host Jorien “Sheever” Van Der Heijden at the launch party. Valve has also decided to invite the meme lord “SirActionsSlacks” Kanner.
While not everyone will be able to enjoy the launch party in person, it can be viewed at Underlord’s Official Twitch channel. This means that regardless of where you are in the world, you will be still able to enjoy the launch party. It has been confirmed that matches during the party will be played with either guests or players from the community. In any case, it is going to be amazing.
Starting February 25, Dota Underlords will no longer be in early access. The developers have already added some amazing features in the game during its early access phase, so it will be excited to see what they are going to add after it. Let’s just wait and see what Valve has planned for their auto battler title.
