One day following the initial announcement that the festival would be venturing to North America for the first time, further information was provided on the official website, including the dates and location set for the event. Inside sources have confirmed that Dota 2 will be one of the featured tournaments. Some voices even imply that Dreamhack Austin will be one of the four Dota 2 Majors. However, that seems somewhat unlikely.
