Version 7.00 of Dota 2 has just hit the main client, bringing you all the backpacks and Monkey Kings you could want.
For full details on what’s actually included in the patch, have a look at the story I wrote yesterday when it popped up on the test server. The short version is: map redesign, backpacks, talent trees, new hero, multiple hero reworks, lots of balance changes, several new models, a new pre-game section, a new HUD, some new– actually, now that I think about it, the short version isn’t really very short. Sorry.
I’m not taking the blame for my descriptions being lengthy, though: the patch itself clocks in at a rather sizeable 6.5GB. If you have Dota 2 installed, then this update should be available to download right now.
For what it’s worth, I’m currently working on a full patch analysis for Dota 2 7.00. This may never, ever be completed, but if it is then you should look out for it over the next few days.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
