by in Dota 2 | Sep, 23rd 2021

Several games have run promotions through Twitch’s drop system by rewarding viewers of specific streams or events with in-game items earned by simply watching. Valorant’s closed beta invites were actually sent out via Twitch drops last year. Other games that have run promotions through Twitch’s drop system include Call of Duty Warzone, Fortnite, and Hearthstone. Now, thanks to some information mined from Steam, it looks like Dota 2 will be partnering with Twitch for Dota 2 drops for The International 10. However, this isn’t Dota 2’s first time using the Twitch drop system.

According to a tweet by SteamDB creator Pavel Djundik, it looks like Twitch drops may be enabled for Dota 2’s The International 10, meaning that players may receive in-game cosmetic items for watching the event on Twitch while having their Steam account linked to their Twitch account. While this isn’t exactly impressive on its own, this will be the first time Dota 2 players will receive Twitch drops since 2013.
