Battle royale titles like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite have become very popular so it’s unsurprising to see that this game mode is now being added to other titles as well. Dota 2 has launched a new battle royale mode called The Underhollow which is another iteration of an underground battle royale. It’s going to be a multi-team dungeon clash with players on a quest for cheese. There’s is one caveat, though, this mode won’t be available to all players.
While it’s not billed as a battle royale mode, The Underhollow surely sounds like and acts like one. It will put three-player teams against each other in a competitive quest for cheese. Players will battle it out in a labyrinth filled with monsters, marvels, and many other three-player enemy squads as they continue their search for Roshan’s rarest cheese all the while ensuring that they are the last team standing.
On top of that, the battlefield itself might contract over time. “Roshan’s cheese frenzy is causing cave-ins as he moves towards the center of the Underhollow. Soon enough there will be nowhere left to run,” the mode’s official description says.
It’s these elements which basically make this game mode an underground battle royale even though it hasn’t been described as one. It hasn’t been revealed at this point in time when The Underhollow will be available but we do know for sure that it’s only going to be available to those who own the 2018 International Battle Pass.
