The first major content update for Diablo Immortal is right around the corner, bringing with it a new battle pass, Helliquary raid boss, and the game’s first limited-time event.
Blizzard has detailed what’s next for mobile-first, free-to-play ARPG in a new blog post that, in addition to outlining some of the new content coming to Diablo Immortal in the near future as part of season two, attempts to address player concerns over in-game bugs and bot accounts. It does not, however, announce any changes in regards to the game’s controversial microtransactions, which has been the primary topic surrounding the game since its early June launch.
Diablo Immortal season two will kick off July 7 at 3 a.m. server time. That’s when the game’s season two battle pass will go live, which introduces new cosmetics and also includes various crafting materials players may find useful. There is a free battle pass reward track, as well as a paid “Empowered” reward track that can be further upgraded with the purchase of a “Collector’s Empowered battle pass.” A new raid boss, Vitaath the Shivering Death, will also be available, though the high combat rating requirement for the boss means many players will likely be unable to challenge her anytime soon.
