Free To Play is now available for pre-load on Steam.
Free To Play is Valve’s (free) documentary about Dota 2, although before you roll your eyes and click away, I should point out that it focuses more on the players than the game. It follows three gamers – Danylo “Dendi” Ishutin, Benedict “HyHy” Lim, and Clinton “Fear” Loomis – on the road to the first International tournament and its million dollar prize.
Thus far, pretty much everything said about it has been hugely positive. Much like the excellent Indie Game: The Movie, I have a sneaking suspicion that it’s going to be highly watchable by even those who’re clueless about the Dota 2 scene… but I suppose we’ll find out on 19 March.
Free To Play is available as a 4.2GB pre-load now. If you want to get it on your hard drive ready for the movie’s release, head on over to this Steam page and click the “Pre-load now” link. As far as I can tell it’s entirely free, so why not?
Amusingly, Steam is listing the movie as having trading cards and achievements. So, uh… yeah.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.
