Valve has listened to community feedback when making changes to the Dota 2 Battle Pass, which has already pushed $15 million into The International 10's prize pool. While the Battle Pass is content-focused, there is a big new Dota 2 update (7.27) on the horizon as well.
Dota 2 update 7.27 first details
The enigmatic IceFrog has shared the first details about the upcoming Dota 2 7.27 update. For those who don't know, IceFrog is the lead developer on Dota 2, and the original Defence of the Ancients.
It is not often that fans hear directly from IceFrog himself, but on the official Dota 2 Updates Twitter account, IceFrog spoke up. The iconic developer revealed what Dota 2 update 7.27 will focus on, at least for the first part...
Upcoming patch schedule— Dota 2 (@dota2updates) June 15, 2020
We are planning on releasing the first part of 7.27 in a couple of weeks, with a focus on item changes, economy and misc general adjustments. It will be followed up later with hero focused changes.@IceFrog#Dota2pic.twitter.com/1ZHAAEPEEV
While a specific release date for Dota 2 update 7.27 wasn't provided, given the timeline of "a couple of weeks" we can assume it should release at the end of June 2020.
There is no telling how big the update will be, but since IceFrog revealed the update will come in at least two parts, we should expect walls of changes in the patch notes.
It is always exciting to see a new Dota 2 update drop, especially with the previous big updates changing the metagame in significant ways.
We will keep you up to date with more details as soon as they are revealed by Valve, or even IceFrog himself.
