Diablo IV’s Season of the Malignant is officially live now

Stay fierce, Nephalem!

The Sanctuary has become a whole lot more thrilling with the launch of Diablo IV's first-ever season, the Season of the Malignant! 

In this fresh season, there are new baddies for you to tackle - the Malignant Monsters, plus you'll get to team up with Cormond, a former priest of the Cathedral of Light. Together, you'll be hunting down those Malignant Hearts, which are like power-packed collectibles that you can wield to your advantage! 

They have also introduced the Season Journey and Battle Pass so you can earn some sweet favour and Season boosts just by doing what we all love - playing the game. Don't worry about starting from scratch if you want to level up a new character. Your previous renown and perks will carry over to your seasonal character. Just log in with your eternal character that's got the most progress, and you're good to go. If you've got that epic mount unlocked, you can ride into battle on your brand-new character right away. 

At the end of the season, all your hard-earned characters will find a cosy home in the Eternal Realm. So you can cherish those memories and revisit your heroic achievements whenever you want.
