Though less than a week has passed since its debut, Valve’s Free To Play has already proven a massive hit by attracting over 5.5 million viewers during its opening weekend.
The film, which was produced internally at Valve Software, follows three professional Dota 2 players from around the world as they prepare themselves for a shot at a $1 million tournament purse. While few professional critics have weighed in on the film’s quality, Valve trumpets the film’s 9.3 out of 10 rating on IMDB, and describes the launch of Free To Play as “one of the largest debuts of any documentary film.”
Of course, it helps that Free To Play is, as its title suggests, freely available to anyone with a functional Internet connection. If you’re interested in watching it yourself, you can find the full film on Steam or by simply looking above this text. Free To Play is also on iTunes, though there it bears a $10 price tag.
