Valve has unveiled the official Battle Pass 2022 to coincide with The International 2022. Now players can start upgrading Battle Pass levels, as well as purchase them in the Dota 2 store for real money.
The game has new arcana, treasures, taunts, commentator phrases, and other items for those gamers who can unlock them as they upgrade up the pass. For example, a Faceless Void item will become available at level 495.
Battle Pass 2022 is divided into two parts. The first is already available, and the second will be released in early November. Event Diretide (“Rise of the Darkness”) will start at the same time – it will be from November 3, 2022, to November 12, 2023.
The International 2022 will take place from October 15 to 30 in Singapore. The eleventh World Championship Series tournament in Dota 2 from Valve, for the second time in history, will be held in Asia. The TI11 has been expanded to 20 participants in 2022, and the championship qualifiers will include an international last-chance stage. The official broadcast from Valve from the venue will only be from the playoff stage – qualifiers, Last Chance, and the group stage will be shown by private studios.
