Dota 2 is finally giving its players their much-needed break from the toxicity and unhealthy competitive environment. Dota 2 is releasing a series of co-op story missions and anyone with a 2017 Battle Pass will be able to access the game's newest campaign. The missions are part of a campaign called Siltbreaker, which is broken into two acts and will be released separately this year.
Dota 2 Is Getting A Co-op Campaign
To join in on this "cooperative adventure" from Valve, players must be proud owners of the Dota 2 Battle Pass 2017 released this week along with the new update. The new multiplayer campaign is called Siltbreaker and will be available in two parts. Act 1 (Sand of Fate) will kick off and be available to Dota 2 Battle Pass holders later this month.
Act 2 (A Vault in the Deep) will go live in July 2017. Battle Pass owners are invited to "undertake a cooperative adventure into the blackest depths of Dark Reef." This new Dota 2 campaign calls upon a party of four players (either friends or queue-met allies) to battle through a landscape of monsters riddled with "cunning traps" and "lethal terrors." Every time players partake in the campaign, they will earn campaign XP and an "exclusive Desert Sands Baby Roshan" from the Wheel of Rewards.
The Dota 2 Battle Pass 2017 is available for as low as $10. For sure, Valve is trying out something new, whether to keep its players interested or to garner some from the players who love story-driven video games. Whichever it is, the success or failure of the new Siltbreaker campaign is definitely worth keeping track of.
Dota 2 Update Released This Week
Valve made changes to Dota 2 this week when it released the new patch update for the game along with the Battle Pass 2017. The regional chat is now restricted to players over level 5 who are linked to a phone number or have purchased items on steam. Accounts without a registered number will no longer be eligible for Ranked play starting May 4 but a two-week grace period has been given by Valve. To read full patch notes, click here.
