The International 11 Dota 2 Battle Pass 2022: Release date, new Arcanas & more
In case you’re wondering when the second part of the Battle Pass for TI11 will release in 2022, we have you covered with all the latest information, including but not limited to the latest Arcanas coming to Dota 2.
The month of May usually means a brand new Battle Pass for that year’s TI (The International) in Dota 2. However, the usual cycle of the annual Battle Pass was thrown off track when TI10 was canceled in 2020.
Instead of a singular Battle Pass for TI, Valve decided to release two separate passes in 2021 with the pass from 2020 being confirmed as the official one for TI10. Still, the annual Battle Pass has made a return in 2022 for TI11. Keep reading to find out more about the game’s TI11 Battle Pass.

The new format of the Battle Pass has split the duration into two halves, the first part running from September 1 to November 2 and the second part stretching over a period from November 3 to January 12, 2023. While the first part focuses massively on The International 11, the second part is more focused on keeping players hooked to the game.
As was previously explained by Valve, this year’s Battle Pass aims at keeping the hype and excitement alive even after The International concludes. It has been evident over the years that the release of the Battle Pass brings a resurgence of returning players to the game. For this purpose, the reworked timeline aims to keep the returning players hooked to Dota 2 for longer.
The new Battle Pass features two parts that are spread out over the course of 17 weeks. The first part of the Battle Pass focuses on The International and will run until November 2nd. On the other hand, the second part of the Battle Pass will feature the iconic Diretide event with a touch of winter festivities and run until January 12, 2023.
With the release of the new Battle Pass, fans have been presented with two new Arcanas, as well as two new hero Personas. However, only one Arcana is available in the first part of the Battle Pass while both the Personas and the final Arcana will be released on November 3rd with the second part of the Battle Pass. Here’s a list of all the new Arcanas and Personas that were revealed in the Dota 2 Battle Pass:

- Immortal Treasure I
- Immortal Treasure II (Releasing with the second part of the Battle Pass)

On top of all these cosmetic items and treasures, the Battle Pass also features a plethora of other in-game items such as:

Having said that, the second part of the Battle Pass will feature a winter-themed Diretide mini-game for everyone irrespective of whether you own the pass or not. Diretide has previously appeared in the game and is usually treated as the biggest non-Battle Pass event in Dota 2.
Additionally, you should also note that Valve recently introduced new weekly bonuses that will help you climb through the Battle Pass levels even quicker, allowing you to unlock even more rewards before the season ends.
However, given that Valve has decided to merge the two biggest in-game events only goes to confirm that this is indeed the biggest Battle Pass in the game’s history.
While several features of the 2022 Battle Pass will be released on November 3, there are quite a few features in the first part itself that you can earn Battle Points from.
