What is in the Diablo 4 Battle Pass?

The Diablo 4 Battle Pass rewards players with premium currency that can be used in the shop.

The Diablo 4 Battle Pass offers the following rewards:

  • Premium Currency: Used to purchase cosmetics.
  • Free Tiers: Available to every player.
  • Premium Tiers: Seasonal cosmetics and aesthetics. Only available in the Premium Battle Pass.
  • Season Boosts: Accelerates XP earned to make leveling multiple characters faster. Available to everyone.

It’s important to note, that you can purchase tiers but they won’t speed up getting Season Boosts. Season Boosts can’t be upgraded just by purchasing tiers, so you’ll also have to earn level milestones to apply them.

However, all other tier rewards can be unlocked instantly by purchasing tiers. To put it simply, Season Boosts must be earned not bought.

How much will the Diablo 4 Battle Pass cost?

According to Blizzard’s recent blog post, the battle pass for Diablo 4 will cost 1000 Platinum (around $10 USD). Blizzard is also offering an accelerated battle pass which grants players tier skips and an emote. The accelerated pass will cost 2,800 Platinum (around $25 USD).

According to a Twitter exchange later shared on Reddit, the in-game currency earned from buying one Battle Pass won’t be enough to purchase a separate Pass at a later date. However, this in-game currency can be put towards the cost of a new Battle Pass, reducing the price.

This means that players will need to either spend some real-world money, or earn enough in-game currency by other means to purchase the next Battle Pass in Diablo 4.
