Good news! Diablo 4’s second season is now live. This, after technical problems forced game publisher Blizzard Entertainment to delay its launch for a few hours.
According to game publisher Blizzard Entertainment, issues with the game’s crossplay feature are the reason for the delay of Diablo 4’s Season of Blood launch, with some players experiencing problems with the second season’s Battle Pass and rewards. Some players reportedly received Premium Battle Pass access without purchasing one.
And because Diablo 4 is a live-service game, that meant you couldn’t play it until the issues were resolved, even if you didn’t want to sink your teeth into the vampire-themed Season of Blood. That sucked, but it’s behind us now.
The second season brings in sweeping changes to the core game, as well as some new features, if the super-lengthy patch notes for the 1.2.0 build is any indication. The patch will go live with Season of Blood and contains more than 10,000 words.
Diablo 4 has officially launched on Steam today and will be Steam Deck verified, meaning it should run fine on the handheld PC without technical glitches. The game is being introduced with a huge 25% discount, dropping the standard version to P3,157.50 or roughly $56 converted from P4,210 ($74) in the Philippines.
Personally, we stopped playing Diablo 4 after reaching World Tier 4 due to lack of end-game content and interesting things to do outside of grinding nightmare dungeons and world bosses to get better gear. Season of Blood hopefully changes that. We’ll see.
Crossing our fingers for a better second season
