Frequently Asked Questions

How do I access the Season content? Do I need a Battle Pass to play?

Once the Season starts, log onto the game, create a new Seasonal character, and enjoy! If you have not completed the campaign yet, you will need to complete it on one character to gain access to seasonal content. The Free Battle Pass is automatically available to all Seasonal characters. Get the Premium or Accelerated Battle Pass to earn additional rewards.

What happens to my character/progression after the Season ends?

The character and progress on that character is transferred to the Eternal Realm. You can play this character whenever you want in the Eternal Realm. Specific Season-only features will no longer be accessible in the Eternal Realm. For example, at the end of Season 1, Malignant Hearts will disappear and be unslotted from jewelry at the end of the season. Infested sockets will become normal sockets. Learn more at
