Diablo 4 Season 2 Trailer Shows New Challenges

Less math, more action - this is how Diablo 4 developers are preparing players for the start of the game's second season in a gameplay trailer following earlier (and rather unfortunate) footage.

After a "minor" failure with earlier material Blizzard has released a gameplay trailer for Season of Blood in Diablo IV. The new video does not focus on individual changes or - as Internet users maliciously commented - "math", but only briefly shows what we can more or less expect from the second season of the fourth Diablo, with a special focus on fresh challenges and rewards.

You can watch the trailer below.

The start of the new season is an important event for players and Blizzard alike. After the premiere enthusiasm, fans quickly found reasons to complain, especially after the July update. Season of Blood and patch 1.2.0 are expected to bring many promising changes and fixes to problems that have effectively discouraged some players from playing Diablo 4. There will be new content, including more quests and vampiric powers.

In addition, simultaneously with the launch of the second season, Diablo 4 will become the next Blizzard Entertainment game to appear on Steam. Having in mind the disastrous reception of Overwatch 2 on this platform and the aforementioned criticism, one may wonder if this is a good idea. Nevertheless, fans of Valve's platform are unlikely to complain. Especially since the game is to be verified for operation on Steam Deck.

Season of Blood and fun on Steam in Diablo IV will start tomorrow at 10 a.m. PST. Keep in mind that this also means the transition of characters from the first season into retirement (i.e., to the Eternal Realm servers).
