Dota 2’s Battle Pass released
May 30, 2016 // 5:12 p.m.
As has now become tradition, fans of Dota 2 are being given an opportunity to support the game’s massive pro tournament, The International, as well as nab themselves loot and unlock new things for the community. This year, it’s the Battle Pass, supposedly a step up from last year’s Compendium.
Each Battle Pass sale contributes to the prize pool for The International 2016, which is sitting at just over $8.5 million (£5.8 million) at the time of writing. It also unlocks new cosmetic items and seasonal terrain on the map for players who own it.
Similarly to previous iterations of the Battle Pass, players can level up their Battle Pass and receive cosmetic rewards. There’s even a new wagering system, and a glorified Pachinko machine that players receive upon completing goals as a community.
There’s tons more for fans of Dota 2 to sink their teeth into, with rewards for fans of either looking fabulous in-game or those who follow the professional side of the game avidly. More details are on the official site.
The International 2016 Battle Pass is available now for $9.99, £7.19, or your equivalent.
