Diablo Immortal Season 3 is set to begin on August 4, with Blizzard using the update as an opportunity to clarify its content plans for mobile ARPG going forward.
New content updates will arrive in the game every two weeks and will come in two different forms, Blizzard said in its latest blog post. The game’s upcoming Season 3 update is what Blizzard calls a “mini update” and will incorporate future battle pass seasons, seasonal events, and various feature updates. Major updates, on the other hand, will bring new core game features, storyline expansions, in-game events, and more.
“It is important to note that all content mentioned above is not mutually exclusive to a mini or major content update and may occasionally be released once it has reached a quality state worthy of our players” , Blizzard said.
As for what’s to come in the Season 3 update, a new battle pass will debut which includes various crests, hilts, legendary gems, and more for players to earn. Like previous Battle Passes, there will be a Free Rewards Track as well as a “Boosted” Premium Rewards Track and a Collector Reinforced Rewards Track that grants instant access to additional cosmetic rewards.
Wrathborne Invasions will be the major new content in the update. Once per day, players will be able to fend off an invasion of elite demons. Those who fend off the demonic hordes will be rewarded with gear, with the top three damage dealers for the event receiving an additional reward of six enchanted dust to further upgrade their gear. The Hungering Moon event previously featured in the game will also return from August 12-15.
A few quality of life improvements are coming with the Season 3 update. Players should find it easier to organize Warband activities now that members will see their online status and in-game activity displayed, and Players will now be able to vote to kick group or raid members who are inactive.
Diablo Immortal has reportedly earned more than $100 million since launch, with Blizzard President Mike Ybarra defending the way the game is monetized even as it has come under heavy criticism for its alleged paid microtransactions.
