Attention, Dota 2 players and other assorted people with no free time: version 6.86 – The Balance of Power update – is now out.
As noted yesterday, this offers significant reworks of multiple heroes, adds in Arc Warden, redesigns the map, throws in a bunch of new items and a new rune, and has all the usual balance-y stuff too. It’s a bit crazy, and I’ll be doing a proper analysis of it when I get the chance. For now, though, you can read up on some details of what horrors lurk within over here, or view the full patch notes here.
The patch should be available to download on Steam now now now, and weighs in at a relatively respectable 880MB. A bit more if you’ve got the Workshop tools installed, I believe, but not by much.Related to this article
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.
