Valve has confirmed the longly awaited Dota 2 The International 2020 Battle Pass is going ahead on May 25. While the event’s Battle Pass is at long last dropping, this year’s International has sadly been postponed to an obscure date. The Battle Pass was slightly pushed back as well due to coronavirus-related delays.
Valve referenced the Battle Pass in an April announcement, where the Dota 2 developer uncovered the Pass would be slightly deferred because of issues caused by COVID-19.
This announcement came alongside the news that The International 2020 would be postponed, conceivably until the next year, also due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. While The International has not been given another start date, the event’s Battle Pass will at long last be accessible tomorrow, May 25th.

The International Battle Pass is made accessible for purchase each year, a couple of months before that year’s International is set to start. The Pass is accessible in tiers, with 25% of the income going straight into The International’s prize pool. TI is known for its staggering prize pools, coming to $34 million out of 2019. Champions OG Esports brought home $15 million.
Like years earlier, the TI10 Battle Pass will highlight a large number of in-game rewards including new animations, consumable items, voice lines, hero equipment sets, and significantly more. The Pass will also incorporate Battle Points, which are compensated in the wake of finishing certain objectives.
