Beta key requirements removed from DOTA 2

Update: Since posting, it has been pointed out via Twitter that you do STILL do require a key.

“Dota 2 is not playable without a key or starter pack, only the tutorial & Dota TV are available. The news sites saying otherwise are wrong.”

Valve have removed the requirements of a beta key for DOTA 2 on Steam from today.

Let’s face it, there was never a real problem getting hold of a key for DOTA 2, they became rather pointless as just about ecerytone on Steam had stacks of invites they could send out to friends, most probably went unused.

The guys at GosuGamers spotted the change and also noted that the trailer has also been added as in introduction which should help new players settle in before undertaking the daunting task of becoming a DOTA 2 master.

This key removal comes hot on the heels of the news that Valve plan to get the game finally launched this summer, before the the Interntational 3 event which takes place between 7-11 August.

    I still haven’t got a beta key. I have waited months and no key. Hope they take off the requirement of a beta key to be able to play.

    You can grab them on Steam’s marketplace for all of about £0.01. I have no idea whether it works or not, but there’s also a bot – http://steamcommunity.com/id/dota2bot – that supposedly dispenses them. Haven’t tried it myself, though.

      Actually, dota 2 dispenser can only give you a free dota 2 key in case your account are not limited, because a new steam user can not sent friend invite request

    Good news, everybody who wants a DOTA 2 key – they don’t exist any more. Instead you just find DOTA 2 on Steam, click on GET DOTA 2 or whatever and then you’re auto-added to a queue for access.

      It’s out of beta. There are no more beta keys. You cannot get beta keys any more because the beta is gone. There is no beta, and there are no beta keys. The game has been released and is out and is available for free, to everyone. Nobody has a beta key anymore.

      What I’m saying is, you should go to Steam and just get the game from there.
