Valve Delays Dota 2 Co-Op Campaign Until Next Week

Dota 2, co-op, Valve

Late May turns to early June.

The first act of the Siltbreaker cooperative campaign for Dota 2 will be delayed until next week, Valve announced on Twitter today.

Siltbreaker, revealed earlier this month, is a two-part cooperative campaign only available for The International Battle Pass owners. Act 1: The Sands of Fate was scheduled to release in late May, while Act 2: A Vault in the Deep would come sometime in July.


The first story campaign for Dota 2 tasks up to four players to explore the Dark Reef, described as “a diverse landscape of loathsome monsters, cunning traps, and other lethal terrors.” Players earn experience points which are used to spin a “Wheel of Rewards” for exclusive prizes, such as a Desert Sands Baby Roshan courier.

The International Battle Pass contains a huge list of features and rewards earned by upgrading the pass through completing matches or buying levels. The Battle Pass costs $9.99 at level 1 with 25% of all sales going towards the The International 2017 prize pool, which currently sits at over $12 million. The Dota 2 tournament will be held in Seattle’s KeyArena from Aug. 7-12.
