Dota 2 artwork for the young Invoker Battle Pass prestige item

While there are plenty of games that use the Battle Pass system, there are very few that have managed to make them quite as impressive as Dota 2's The International Battle Pass. As such, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that the latest Battle Pass has once again managed to cram in even more content than the previous ones, to the point that simply scrolling down the website is an endurance challenge.

There is now a party finder option and the ability to avoid certain players, a chance to coach lower-skilled players in return for in-game rewards, the ability to vote for the match MVP, as well as a chance to showcase your achievements before each match. While it's currently unavailable, there will also be a special event centered around awakening gigantic bosses to crush your enemies, all in an effort to gain those precious compendium points.

Much like before, there will also be an absolute ton of new cosmetics to collect, including some that go a bit beyond what was previously available. Most notably, there will be a young Invoker skin with its own themed animations and voice lines, as well as an axe-free version of Axe, which I do believe is illegal in at least fifty countries.

The list of new and returning features really does go on forever, so if you're curious about what the 2019 International Battle Pass has to offer, you should head on over to the official website. Just make sure to grab some coffee before you dive in, because once you start, you'll be scrolling downwards for quite a while!

Axe is clearly not pleased about this whole situation
