Valve releases Dota 2 for Linux and Mac

That didn't take long at all

It's only been a short while after the admittedly long-in-the-making official release of Dota 2 for Windows and Valve has already prepared Mac and Linux versions of the immensely popular game. Those are available for download right now on Steam.

Mac minimum system requirements:

  • Mac OS X Lion 10.7
  • 4GB RAM
  • 8GB Hard drive space
  • nVidia 320M or higher, or Radeon 7000 or higher, or Intel HD 3000 or higher

Linux minimum system requirements:

  • Ubuntu 12.04
  • Dual core from Intel or AMD at 2.8 GHz
  • 4GB RAM
  • 8GB Hard Drive Space,
  • nVidia GeForce 8600/9600GT, ATI/AMD Radeaon HD2600/3600 (Graphic Drivers: nVidia 310, AMD 12.11), OpenGL 2.1
  • OpenAL Compatible Sound Card

New players are being let into Dota 2 gradually to avoid totally overloading the game's infrastructure, so if you're among the bright-eyed beginners who are in for a world of hurt, you'll first be added to Valve's launch queue before getting into the game proper.

Dota 2 Update - July 18th, 2013 [Steam]
