It's been a wild week. After Riot quickly regained the advantage in the Auto Chess-style game with Teamfight Tactics, Valve has responded by beating Riot to the punch on mobile, with Dota Underlords launching on PC, iOS and Android today.
It's already become one of the most popular games on Steam, overtaking Path of Exile and Rust with around 58,000 concurrent players to become the 5th most played game on Valve's platform. The collapse in support from Dota 2 has meant that CS:GO is now Steam's most popular game once more, with PUBG and Rainbow Six: Siege just behind. Those stats don't include players on mobile, however, where the game will undoubtedly find its greatest audience.
I'll have a play around with Dota Underlords and let you know what it's like. Chances are it'll be good — it's hard to bugger it up when Auto Chess already laid the platform.
