  • Valve Introduces New DotA 2 Subscription Feature For $3.99 A Month

Dota Plus will act as a upgraded version of the game's ongoing battle pass, and is available now.

Valve have introduced a new monthly subscription service for Dota 2. "In the past we released two types of Battle Passes, ones that revolved around the Majors, and one around The International".

The collective knowledge of the Dota community is vast, and every day, in millions of games played around the world, it grows.

Dota Plus subscribers will also have access to a "Death Summary" screen providing "a second-by-second timeline of incoming damage, stuns, and other disabling effects" in real-time, and a "Lane Strategy" feature with team-wide suggestions for lane configurations. "You can unlock Relics for any hero by using Reward Shards, and when you unlock multiple Relics, they all track simultaneously". It gets this information by analyzing data from recent games from all skill levels to help keep gamers up to date with current meta builds.

Each week allows you to earn 1,000 extra shorts too, and you can use these shards to choose rewards from a list of items exclusive to Plus subscribers, not to mention select legacy item sets.

Another new feature, the Plus Assistant, can help players by offering advice on picking certain skills or items that may be more effective. There will even be graphs that can be viewed during or after matches for checking stats to see how effective a certain build or playstyle was. With the game being a popular eSports title, the tournaments are a great way to get into the more competitive side of Dota 2. Finally, Valve is bringing back the weekend Battle Cup tournaments, which Plus members will receive free access to. Non-subscribers will still be able to participate, but will have to purchase tickets to be able to do so. For the monthly price of $3.99 United States dollars you can also track in-game progress, select a challenge before the game (with these challenges refreshed every two weeks), and make use of the Hero Chat Wheel, allowing you to choose phrases for your hero to say.

Despite having only just been announced, Dota Plus is already available.
