After a month of teasing a Chinese New Year’s updatefor Dota 2, Valve have today unveiled the “New Bloom Festival.”

The new update is set to feature a mysterious boss called the “Year Beast.” Presumably this new creature will take a similar form to other events offered in Dota 2, wherein a seperate map is made available for players to work together against the boss.

Beating this “Year Beast” will give players new cosmetic items, ranging from armament for heroes, wards and couriers. From the sound of things, the boss fight will also have a global leader board, with the best players during the event being rewarded rare items.

There’s currently no release date for the event, but recently Valve has favoured the start of the week for new updates.
