The Dota 2 Workshop Tools is a set of software utilities available as a free download for Dota 2 that allow you to create your own custom game modes (called addons). The tools package must be installed to create or play any custom game mode addons.

Warning:At this time, the Dota 2 Workshop Tools are considered an beta testing release and only suitable for custom game mode content authoring. Developers creating cosmetic content for inclusion in the Dota 2 store will need to utilize the existing tool path. More information on that path can be found on the Dota 2 Workshop website.
Note:Change notes for the Dota 2 Workshop Tools will be included with the Dota 2 Reborn Beta updates. For the initial changes from the alpha to beta release of the tools, see the full change log on the Beta Release Notes section.
