Dota 2‘s co-op Siltbreaker campaign has been delayed, which probably isn’t much of a surprise when you remember that it’s being developed by Valve.
This news comes direct from the Dota 2 Twitter account, marking one of the rare times Valve deigns to speak to the public:
We are currently finishing up the Siltbreaker campaign and will unfortunately need to delay it until next week.

In case you missed it, Siltbreaker is a co-op Dota 2 campaign that comes with purchases of the Battle Pass for The International 7. The first of its two acts was due to be released in May… which, uh, now clearly isn’t happening. In any case, whenever it launches, it’ll challenge players to team up and fight monsters in the infamous Dark Reef prison. We’ve got no real idea as to how it works, but I’m imagining something partway between a Warcraft 3 hero mission, Diablo, and an MMO dungeon. Act Two, meanwhile, is presumably still on track for July.
On the plus side, we’ve apparently only got another week to wait. And hey! We got some new hats to buy at the end of last week, so what’re we complaining about?
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
