Diablo 4's "Season of Blood": What to Expect from the Upcoming Livestreams


Blizzard's iconic action RPG, Diablo 4, is gearing up for its second season, aptly named "Season of Blood." With the gaming community's anticipation at an all-time high, Blizzard has announced not one, but two extensive livestreams to delve into the details of this new season.

The Build-Up to Season 2

A couple of weeks after the initial buzz, Blizzard has finally revealed the dates for its deep dive into the "Season of Blood." The excitement surrounding this new season is palpable, and Blizzard seems ready to feed into this enthusiasm with two comprehensive livestreams.

Exploring the "Season of Blood" Features

The first livestream is scheduled for Wednesday, October 4, starting at 11 am PT / 2 pm ET / 7 pm BST. This session promises to be a treat for fans, with members of the development team, led by community director Adam Fletcher, taking center stage. The primary focus of this livestream will be the new vampire-related mechanics introduced in the "Season of Blood."

This season, unveiled during the Gamescom Opening Night Live, brings a fresh vampire hunter character to the fore. Additionally, it introduces intriguing mechanics centered around vampirism. Much like the "Malignant Hearts" from Season 1, players will have the opportunity to harness the power of vampire blood to enhance their characters.

Quality of Life Updates and More

Blizzard is not just stopping at new mechanics. The livestream will also shed light on several quality of life updates accompanying the new season. Players can look forward to additional Stash space, improvements to mounts, enhanced dungeons, and more.

A Deep Dive into Class Balance and System Reworks

The second livestream, dubbed the "Campfire Chat," is set for Tuesday, October 10. This session will cater more to the nuances of gameplay, focusing on class balance changes introduced in the new season. Additionally, Blizzard will reveal reworks to in-game systems that are currently under development.

Key Dates and What's Next

The "Season of Blood" officially begins on October 17. However, players can expect the pre-season patch to roll out a few days earlier. It's hoped that one of the scheduled livestreams will provide a concrete date for this patch release.


Diablo 4's "Season of Blood" promises to be a thrilling addition to the game's narrative and mechanics. With two livestreams on the horizon, players can gear up for a deep dive into what's in store for them in this new season. From vampire hunters to enhanced gameplay features, the "Season of Blood" is set to elevate the Diablo 4 experience to new heights.
