Diablo 4’s Season Of Blood Patch Notes Out Now

Blizzard's action RPG looks all set to receive a massive update on October 17.

Story Highlights

  • Diablo 4 is Blizzard’s latest entry in the long-running Diablo franchise of RPG games, succeeding Diablo 3 as the third major installment in the dungeon-crawling series.
  • Blizzard has been making efforts to improve the Diablo 4 user experience though, and thus far, Season of Blood is going to be the game’s biggest update yet. 
  • Season 2 of the title will be released on October 17, coinciding with the Steam launch of Diablo 4. The patch notes for the update, however, are already out. 

Diablo 4’s update 1.2 will kick off Season of Blood — the game’s second seasonal content release to date — on October 17. That said, developer Blizzard Entertainment has pushed out the patch notes for the forthcoming update ahead of time, letting players and fans visualize all the changes that are making their way to the dungeon-crawling RPG. 

Suffice to say that this is Diablo 4’s biggest update yet, packing a tremendous number of gameplay changes, spanning accessibility, user interface, dungeons, end-game activities, and balance adjustments as well. Moreover, there’s an enormous line of bug fixes that Blizzard has doled out, not to mention the reduction of the level requirements for the Battle Pass Smoldering Ashes Tiers

The Diablo IV team has been diligently monitoring your feedback. As we introduce patches to keep your experience in Sanctuary smooth, we will update the below list and denote whether the fixes are intended for PC, Xbox, PlayStation, or all platforms,” reads the official post detailing the patch notes. It’s worth noting that the game hasn’t received yet the patch; it’s due to be rolled out on all relevant platforms next week.

Although Diablo 4 has gotten off to a good start commercially, tracing its release back to June this year, the RPG failed to hit home with hardcore fans of the franchise. Many brought up some of the fundamental problems of Diablo 4, such as the end-game content not being up to the mark, and lackluster quality-of-life features that make the title look and feel incomplete.

That said, Blizzard has been listening to the community and is gradually plucking out most of the major issues players associate with Diablo 4. Commenting on the patch notes that have arrived in the wake of Season 2, one player says, “Season 1 fell on its face and really shone a light on the things D4 was lacking. Season 2 is seemingly just a massive win for the players. Everything was touched and pain points addressed. We’ll see how it all shakes out but I’m very excited to get back in and roll a new character.”

In case you missed it, October 17 also happens to be the release day of Diablo 4 on Steam, Valve’s major PC gaming launcher. This presumably comes after the company’s decision to land Overwatch 2 on Steam earlier in the year, which kicked off the influx of Blizzard games to the platform in question. Diablo 4, therefore, is the second Blizzard game to follow in the footsteps of Overwatch 2

It’s our goal at Blizzard to listen to players and try to exceed their expectations in everything we do. While Battle.net remains a priority for us now and into the future, we’ve heard players want the choice of Steam for a selection of our games, starting with Overwatch 2 on August 10th. We’re happy to work with Valve to make that happen,” said Mike Ybarra, President of Blizzard Entertainment.

Diablo 4 was released on June 5, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
