Valve is removing all restrictions to play Dota 2, the company announced today. No more signups, no more queue system; everyone who wants to is now free to play Dota 2.
On the game's official blog, Valve says it's opening the gates to Dota 2 after having "recently completed a set of server management upgrades as well as released a huge number of enhancements to the new user experience." When Dota 2's beta came to a close in July, Valve started admitting new players in waves as it scaled hardware to meet demand.
Players can now download and play the game on Linux, Mac and Windows PC.
Dota 2 has 6.5 million active users per month, Valve says, an audience that's sure to grow now that playing restrictions have been lifted.
