The highly anticipated and long-awaited International 8 Battle Pass has finally arrived including all of the bells and whistles and more than fans have come to expect. 

As with last year, the International Battle Pass has been released three months prior to the big event, giving compendium owners new features including Role Match Making queue, Mutation mode, Underhollow adventure game mode, sprays, team challenges, new lane creeps, in-game tipping, predictions as well as a slew of the old favorites such as trivia, arcana voting, token wagering and Rylai's Wheel.

The International Battle Pass is on sale HERE for $9.99 or $36.99 for Level 75. Additional levels can be purchased HERE for 5 $2.49, 11 Levels for $4.99 and 24 Levels for $9.99.

Already The International 8 Battle Pass sales and prize pool contribution is outpacing all of the previous years. With the prize pool starting at $1,600,000 the sales have already doubled the starting pool, bringing it to a whopping $4,030,406 ($2,430,406 added). Only 25% of the sales contribute to the prize pool meaning that $9,721,624 has already been spent in purchases merely hours after release. Last year, The International prize pool reached $24,787,916 ($23,187,916 added). 


NEW FOR 2018


The Underhollow:

Last year Valve introduced their first multiplayer adventure game mode with The Siltbreakwer campaign. This year, Battle Pass owners will be able to enjoy the multiteam Dungeon Clash with the storyline centering around Roshan - coming soon. 

Roshan is on a ravenous, cheese-fueled rampage and Battle Pass owners are invited to venture beyond the surface of his lair into the heart of the Underhollow.
Battle through a labyrinth filled with monsters, marvels, and many other three-player enemy squads as you search for Roshan's rarest cheese and work to be the last team standing. You'll need to navigate carefully to earn the XP and Gold needed to destroy your opponents.
But don't take too long—Roshan's cheese frenzy is causing cave-ins as he moves towards the center of the Underhollow. Soon enough there will be nowhere left to run.
