DOTA 2 dives onto Mac and Linux

Valve's latest update for DOTA 2 has added lanes for both Mac and Linux. The update offers character balance tweaks that will make the most of every frenzied click, as well as a slew of adjustments to the user interface, matchmaking tools, visuals and audio elements.

Rounds in tournament and practice lobby matches now automatically end 10 seconds after a GG (good game) is called. The update also adds a daily calendar of tournament listings and adjustments to character abilities and the involved damage dealt.

Mac users will need OS X Lion 10.7, 4 GB of RAM, 8 GB of hard dive space, and the equivalent of an AMD Radeon 7000 graphics card for DOTA 2. Players running Linux will need Ubuntu 12.04, a dual core 2.8 GHz processor, 8 GB of hard drive space, and the equivalent of an AMD Radeon HD2600 to meet the game's minimum requirements.

DOTA 2 officially launched on July 10th for Windows. Heroes seeking the update's full bounty can find it here.
