Lords enter Dota Underlords Arenawhich is called the game. Before each battle, the player selects a lord who will lead the team and will fight side by side with the heroes, applying abilities, giving improvements and so on. Each character has a set of unique talents. For example, Anessix and Hobgen each have 22 talents, 11 of which are initially closed and unlocked by game.
Valve also introduces "Pair mode", the namewhich speaks for itself. In this mode, players create a group with a friend and fight against seven other duets. There are 16 players on the battlefield. Participants in the battle still hire and upgrade their fighters, but in addition they can transfer gold and heroes to each other. In addition, couples receive a general level and health. So far, only the regular version of the pair mode is available in the game, and the rating Valve plans to add later.
The update will also add “Free Mode”, where players can quickly recreate and test various situations, strategies and try out heroes.
New alliances appeared - insects, healers,thugs and champions. In the shop, players are waiting for Faceless, Io, Spider-Mother and the Legion Commander. In total, the list was replenished with twelve heroes who formed new alliances and expanded existing ones. Valve also reworked the balance of the remaining heroes.
The developers also introduced the "Catalancer" mechanics, which block 8-12 random heroes every 24 hours. Despite the lack of heroes, you can collect all alliances.
Also worth noting is the updated interface on the PC.and mobile devices. Valve has improved sections, including the main menu and message system. In addition, we added buttons for communicating with partners in pairing mode.
