Announcing Season of Blood at Gamescom: Opening Night Live

Season of Blood will introduce a new Questline for you to uncover, Vampiric Powers to wield against their originators, 5 additional endgame bosses with the ability to target specific Unique and Uber Unique items as a drop, and more.

Season 2 is set to release on Oktober 17th 2023.

At the behest of their dark master, a newly turned army of ravenous vampires has set their sights on Sanctuary. The master’s sinister plot remains a shrouded mystery but their pursuit for the blood of innocents has caused an uproar. You must learn to hunt the hunter—your fate depends on it.

Updates Coming to Season 2

Quality of Life updates

While the following shouldn't be regarded as Seasonal content, these updates will be much welcomed by the community.

  • More efficient Inventory management for Gems.
  • Paragon Points, Skill Points, Potion Charges, and Obol capacity upgrades will now carry over into a new Season once achieved with an Eternal or previous Seasonal Realm character.
  • Changes to the functionality of status effects such as Vulnerable, Overpower, Critical Strike Damage and also Elemental Resistances.

QoL and Bugfixes


Season 2 seems to repeat the same pattern of Season 1. Some enemies appear in a different status (malignant/vampiric) and reward you with an empowering item (Malignant Hearts/Vampiric Powers). Hopefully Season 2 will introduce some new original mechanics too.

What we’ve shared today is just a slice of what’s in store for wanders in Season of Blood. We’ll share more details about Season of the Blood as we approach its release date.

As of now, Season 2 doesn't offer much interesting like they promised seasons would have, and it looks like the Seasonal content presented here is just rehashed Eternal Realm content.

It will be interesting to see though how additional methods of target farming uniques will impact the game.
