Valve's MOBA title Dota 2 is now available for Mac and Linux users, thanks to a new update for the game.
The minimum requirements for the Mac version include the Mac OS X Lion 10.7, 4GB of RAM, 8GB of hard drive space, and an Nvidia 320M graphics card or higher. The minimum specs for the Linux version include the Ubuntu 12.04 OS, dual core from Intel or AMD at 2.8GHz, 4GB of RAM, 8GB of hard drive space, an Nvidia GeForce 8600/9600GT card or higher, and an OpenAl compatible sound card.
The update also fixes the user interface, specifically adding automatic detection of GG calls in tournament and practice lobby matches, as well as adding a tournament drop for early roshan kills. In terms of visuals, players have access to a new Earthshaker model and effects. Abaddon's Borrowed Time effect and healing is more distinct.
Gameplay balances and fixes are added as well. For example, Medusa's Stone Gaze facing requirement is now taking distance into account once the debuff is added, while Omniknight's Guardian Angel spell now affects siege units.
The full list of changes in the new patch are listed on Valve's official Dota 2 blog.
