Good news for Dota fans! Based on the popular Dota 2, Valve’s very own Dota Underlords, a turn-based strategic battle game is now available for mobile devices.
Because of the huge Dota Auto Chess player base or, the game already got a huge headstart. According to the report from SteamDB, the game already has an average of around 160,000 concurrent players, and is peaking at around 180,000 players.
As the game is still in development, Valve plans to keep Dota Underlords in “beta” for a couple of months, after which they intend to release the full version. Currently, the game is available on Android,iOS and Steam.
On my very first impression of the game, the game looked quite good. Getting into a match does not take much time. The graphics looked pretty good with clear texts and flashy icons. If you are already familiar with the Dota environment then it will be very easy for you to understand the game. But if you are not, then you may find it little difficult to understand what is going on. However, there is a tutorial section to help you out.
The storyline from the Store description of Dota Underlord says,
WHITE SPIRE AWAITS A LEADER…
A vertical metropolis of gambling and grit, just beyond the reach of Stonehall and Revtel; White Spire is known as a smugglers’ paradise with loose morals and colorful residents to spare. Despite being overrun with syndicates, gangs, and secret societies, White Spire has never descended into chaos for one reason: Momma Eeb. She was respected… she was loved… and unfortunately, she was murdered last week.
Eeb’s death has sent one question rippling through White Spire’s underworld: who is going to run the city?
