Diablo Immortal’s first troubled Season is coming to an end. Here’s everything we know about Season 2 of Diablo Immortal.

Since its release, Diablo Immortal has been off to a very shaky start. The game had a lukewarm response even when it was first announced, but its first few weeks have been mired in controversy with some players having a truly hellish experience. The question is, will this continue into Season 2?

While most Diablo fans look forward to Diablo 4, many also hope that Diablo Immortal can be salvaged. However, many players have already thrown in the towel, unhappy with the game’s reliance on microtransactions and pay-to-win mechanics.

When does Diablo Immortal Season 2 start?

Diablo Immortal Season 2 will start July 7, 2022 at 3am server time. This means it will go live at 3am in your time zone, provided you play on a local server.

The new Bloodsworn Battle Pass will also go live at that time, giving players the opportunity to play through the next 40 ranks, unlocking lots of new loot as they do. This includes the precious Legendary Gems, however, this too will reset on August 4, 2022.

Diablo Immortal’s microtransactions continue to prove controversial.

Season 2 Battle Pass price

The premium ‘Empowered’ Diablo Immortal Battle Pass will cost $4.99 – £4.49. Of course, it’s entirely optional but can help boost progression speed and your character’s power.

You can also take advantage of another option when buying the Empowered Pass, this allows you to level up by 14 levels once it has been installed. This second option costs £12.99 – and will likely be around $12.99 USD.

However, there are many who may view these options as pay-to-win tactics and decide to not spend the money. This is okay, as those playing without engaging in microtransactions can still progress, just a bit slower.
