Dota 2 players have a new adversary, and no, it’s not that annoying 13-year-old shouting racial and sexist insults over voice chat. It’s “Aghanim the Mighty, Aghanim the All-Knowing, Aghanim the Absolutely-Yoked-and-Handsome” — all right, so maybe he does have some things in common with juvenile edgelords — who’s offering up a challenge in the form of a new co-op mode.

Aghanim’s Labyrinth is a four-player roguelike adventure where the man — or whatever he is — himself has gathered creatures from various dimensions to test adventurers. After clearing a room, teams will have to choose where to go next and what will await them along the next path. Along the way, they’ll collect Aghanim Scepter Shards that they can use to enhance their powers and take on even tougher enemies.

If you clear the Labyrinth, you’ll unlock a new Ascension Level — there are four total — each of which comes with an Aghanim chat wheel voice line. You’ll also gain Arcane Fragments for your efforts, which can be used to grant permanent bonuses for future Labyrinth runs.

Aghanim’s Labyrinth is free to all players, with Battle Pass owners earning up to 2,000 Battle Points each week. Learn more on the Dota 2 website.
