Dota 2: Something Big is Coming Tomorrow
Previously, Valve came out with an announcement stating that it will be reworking its entire updating process for Dota 2. And since then, we have been seeing a new update for the game after every couple of weeks, specifically every other Thursday. And since it’s been two weeks, I believe a new update for the game is set to release tomorrow i.e. 24 May 2018. However, with The Battle Pass also in play, I think the update will also include something big.
Ever since the initial announcement, we have been seeing quite a lot of update to release for Dota 2 which not only include bug fixes but also map changes and hero reworks. And since the last Dota 2 update was 7.15 which released on May 10th, we are due for yet another update. Plus, keeping with the traditions, the update is expected to surface sometime tomorrow.
However, as exciting as this may be, I believe Valve is working on releasing something bigger this week. I say this as we are now in the early stages of The International 2018 Battle Pass which means the developers will be releasing new content every now and then to reignite the prize pool fire. Hence, we could be seeing something like a new cosmetic item or a new feature.
What To Expect
Keeping with The International 2017 Battle Pass, Valve released the IO Arcana around the same time. So, a new Arcana could be making its way to Dota 2 tomorrow, possibly one for Rubick as it was him who lost to Pudge in the Arcana Showdown finals.

Check out the list below of the features or items which could be released with upcoming Dota 2 update:
- Meepo Announcer
- The next Immortal Treasure (highly unlikely as it’s too soon for this but you never know)
- Prestige item for Lion (Already revealed on the official website)
- The Promise of Eminent Revival
- Second Matchmaking Season
- Rubick Arcana
- The Underhollow
However, keep in mind that the developers have yet to announce anything regarding this new upcoming update. This is just my speculation that Valve is going to introducing something big along with the update release. So, comment below and let us know what you think of all this, do you think its time we see something new in the Battle Pass?
