Dota 2 is a free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game developed and published by Valve Corporation. It is the sequel to Defense of the Ancients (DotA), which was a community-created mod for Blizzard Entertainment's Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.
In Dota 2, two teams of five players each battle against each other to destroy the enemy team's Ancient, a large structure located in their opponent's stronghold. Each player controls a single hero, with unique abilities and skills that can be upgraded as the game progresses.
The game features over 120 heroes to choose from, each with their own playstyle and strengths. Players must work together to strategize and coordinate their hero choices, item builds, and gameplay tactics to achieve victory.
In addition to the main game mode, Dota 2 also offers a variety of other gameplay options, such as custom games, practice matches, and seasonal events. The game also has a thriving esports scene, with tournaments and leagues featuring top players and teams from around the world.
With its challenging gameplay, endless possibilities for strategy and customization, and dedicated community of players, Dota 2 is a must-play title for any fan of the MOBA genre.
