Dota 2The annual tournament, The International, will take place in Singapore in October. While Valve has hosted The International in the US, Canada, China, Germany and Romania in the past, this is the first time the global esports competition is heading to a South Asian country. -East.

Valve teased the upcoming event in a tweet but did not provide additional details beyond a location and date. The tournament is known for its very generous prize pools, with last year’s winning team getting a share of the $40 million prize pool. This large sum is funded by in-game purchases made by the Dota 2 community and has grown steadily over the years. We don’t know how much there is to win in this year’s competition, but we probably won’t have to wait much longer to find out.

After postponing the 2020 event in Stockholm, Sweden due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The International was set to finally debut in Sweden last year. However, problems with the Swedish authorities derailed the plans and Valve had to move the event to Bucharest, Romania. Things didn’t go as planned in Bucharest either, as Valve ended up holding the competition without a live audience due to an increase in COVID-19 cases. It is unclear whether Valve will take any COVID-19 precautions at this year’s competition, and Valve did not immediately respond to The edgerequest for comment.
