Dota Plus Winter update: New metal pack, seasonal treasure, quests and rewards

Brace yourself; winter is coming! Well, at least if you're in the Northern Hemisphere, that is. Last week, Valve announced the start of the Dota 2 Pro Circuit (DPC) Winter Tour, so it's only fitting that yet another Dota 2 Winter Update was to be expected.

According to Valve's latest blog post, Dota Plus subscribers will be happy to know that they can blast through those cold winter nights with a slew of new seasonal content, including new treasures, updated quid quests and rewards.

Valve also released a new heavy metal music pack from the Swedish rock band Humanity's Last Breathe for all players to enjoy to put the cherry on top!

As previously mentioned, Valve's official blog post announced several feature additions for Dota Plus subscribers. Indeed, while the winter nights grow longer and cold, the action in the lane never truly stops.

New Dota Plus Seasonal Treasures

The Winter 2021 Season Treasure brings new exclusive sets for Spirit Breaker, Chaos Knight, Riki, Treant Protector, Arc Warden, Undying, and Lina for Dota Plus subscribers.
