Valve Releases The 2020 Battle Pass For As Low As $9.99
Valve released the 2020 Battle Pass despite the cancellation of The International 10 this year. The tournament holds the title of one of the most popular events in the Dota 2 Bitcoin betting circle and esports in general. The limited-edition Dota 2 pass launched yesterday for as low as $9.99. 25% of the total sales will be part of TI10’s prize pool in 2021 or later this year.
In a blog post, Valve announced the release of the Battle Pass, as well as the new features they added to the 2020 edition. As for the biggest Dota 2 championship of the season, the organizer promised to make a decision as soon as possible:
“We will continue to monitor the global situation and will announce new dates when we can be confident in our ability to deliver a safe and uncompromised tournament for the players and fans. As always, 25% of all Battle Pass sales will go directly to the prize pool of this event.”
Like its previous versions, the new Battle Pass comes with a bundle of new cosmetic items, game modes, and community activities. Level 1 bundle sells for $9.99 and contains the basic game features. For upgraded versions, Level 50 and Level 100 bundles are also available for $29.35 and $44.99, respectively.
