Dota Underlords artwork for the new Underlord Enno

[Update]: Dota Underlords has now been officially released from Steam Early Access alongside the Season 1 patch.

After an absolute ton of changes, most of which ranged from good, bad to downright experimental, Valve's Dota Underlords is now just about ready to release in full. According to the latest developer update, you can expect to see it arrive alongside Season 1 this February 25th.

The details behind Season 1 are currently few and far between, but what I can tell you so far is that it'll bring with it new content in the shape of the City Crawl game mode, as well as a new Battlepass filled with cosmetic rewards. There'll also be a new meta with its own hero/item rotation, some much needed quality of life changes, and naturally, even more UI polishing and balance tweaks.

In order to make these upcoming days fly by faster, as well as give players something new to mess around with until Season 1, Valve has now also released a brand new Underlord - Enno. He may be diminutive in stature, but he is an absolute menace on the battlefield and is capable of both stealing items (temporarily) and messing up the enemy's positioning.

Needless to say, Enno can be an absolute nightmare to go up against, and as such is a bit of a divisive topic within the Dota Underlords community. Personally, I'm not exactly a fan of how disruptive he can be in the middle of a match, but since Valve has shown that they are willing and able to sort out any problematic ability in a reasonable time frame, I have no doubts that Enno will end up being a fun little furball soon enough.

You can read more about Enno, as well as the accompanying balance changes, over at Steam. Have fun!
