Valve Created Documentary Film Free To Play Premieres Next Month

Developed internally at Valve, the documentary film follows three professional Dota 2 players from different countries as they compete in a $1 million tournament.

The film follows each of the players – coming from Asia, North America, and Europe – taking a peak inside their home and family life on their way to compete in the tournament in Germany.

A screening for the film is taking place March on 18 at the Castro Theater in San Francsico, CA. You can head here to purchase tickets, which are apparently limited. You can find a trailer for the film below, or find out more about it on its official website.

After the film's premiere, you will be able to watch it on Steam for free on March 19.


Our Take
Valve is a company full of surprises, and you can count this documentary film among them. So far, in the world of video game movies, documentaries seem to be the way to go. Films like Indie Game: The Movie and King of Kong have both proven to be entertaining and interesting films. I'm curious to see the completed film on March 19.
