Valve have updated Dota 2 with a major new release featuring not only a brand new Battle Pass and a big new event, they also added in AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution.
The new Battle Pass is available at a minimum $7.49 / £5.49 spend, although you don't need it to access the Nemestice Event Game as it's available to everyone. In this new game mode every three minutes a Nemestice Storm will cause a giant meteorite strike in the centre of the map. You need to channel them to collect Nemestice Embers while also dodging them so they don't hit you. These Embers will power you up boosting attack damage, spells and movement speed and if you have enough you shock nearby enemies. It puts a little twist on towers too, with each falling giving the remaining a power boost - destroy all enemy towers to claim the area and win.
As for the Battle Pass, you likely know the drill by now. There's quests to complete to gain Battle Points, new assistant features, unlock new rewards as you level up the Battle Pass. Level up high enough and there's some real special cosmetics included like the outfit from the Anime series Dota: Dragon's Blood, along with Spectre Arcana, ranged attack effects, new creep styles and much more.
Surprisingly, AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution does work on Linux too which we've now been able to confirm with this natively supported title (and absolutely on NVIDIA GPUs too). There's also scattered reports of it working just fine in some Windows games played in Steam Play Proton but this gives another game to test with. As long as you have Dota 2 set to Vulkan and bring down the "Game Screen Render Quality" to less than 100% you're able to tick the box to turn it on.
