In recent years the gaming scene has been dominated by new genres which were ignited by popular mods. The popular MOBA genre, ruled by League of Legends and Dota 2, surfaced in the wake of a popular Warcraft 3 mod known as Defense Of The Ancients. PUBG may have ushered in the battle royale genre, but it started its life as a mod for the popular ARMA III military simulator. Dota Underlords is another example of that.
In recent months a new mod has taken the gaming world by storm, leading to the appearance of yet another video games genre. Auto Chess was published in January as a mod for Dota 2. It replaces the classic MOBA gameplay with a more tactical setup as eight players wage battle against each other. The mod became a quick hit among players and Valve decided to offer its take on the new genre in the form of Dota Underlords. Read below to learn more about it.
Dota Underlords Features
- Create the perfect team – Recruit a vast assortment of heroes and upgrade them to unlock their full potential. Add heroes with similar traits to the mix to create powerful alliances which offer mighty bonuses and use them to beat your enemies into oblivion.
- Play on your favorite devices – Most games are better if you can play them on several devices. Dota Underlords works across a large number of devices, allowing players to start a match on one device and to finish it on another if they want to. For example, players can start a match on the bus and resume on the PC after they get home, enjoying the benefits of a larger screen.
