The International 7 is just three months away, so Valve has released the 2017 Battle Pass, in which you can expect an entirely new co-op campaign, several unique new items, in-game wagers and more.

There are also the all-important rewards, as completing achievements in-game contributes towards raising your level, as does purchasing levels directly from the Dota 2 store. You can purchase all the way up to Level 75 for $36.99 USD (roughly £28.54), or start at Level 1 for $9.99 (about £7.71) then buy levels in sets of 5 for $2.49 (around £1.49).

Battle Point Tokens are a new feature to this year's Battle Pass too, which allow players to place them before a match to give an increased amount of Battle Points to the player that placed them if they win the game, however, you can only use a certain amount of them per week, and you can only place more by increasing the level of the Battle Pass.

More importantly, the crowd-sourcing of the International 7 has begun with the release of the Battle Pass. Last year's International 6 saw the sale of Battle Passes increase the prize pool by $19.8 million, and given how much fantastic content is in this year's, it's not too far-fetched to expect that amount to be broken.

You can find out more about what's on offer here. How good is this year's Battle Pass?
