Dota 2 players will be getting more frequent -- if smaller -- updates over the next six months. While not currently intended to be a permanent thing, the update schedule will push content every two weeks. This is a fairly big change from the normal update system that dropped large updates a few times a year. (The last update update was released in October of last year.)

The updates will be pushed every other Thursday. To help players keep track of what's going on, Valve will be adding a new in-game feature to notify players about changes made to heroes. Players will want to note that the new release schedule is basically a test to see how it works out. When the approximately six-month period is up, Valve will reevaluate.
