Diablo 4 Season 5

As you play Diablo 4 and enjoy the game, you may discover that season 5 will start soon. Knowing what this season involves and how it impacts your characters matters, so you'll want to learn about them. Doing so can help you plan around the seasons and know what you can expect from them.

Diablo 4 Season 5 Release Date

The Diablo 4 Season 5 release date is August 6, 2024, when Season 4, Loot Reborn, ends. Diablo seasons typically run on a three-month cycle and start on the same day the previous one finishes.

Diablo 4 Season 5 New Content

Diablo 4 Season 5 will include a new Eternal Quest named ‘The Eyes of the Enemy’, as well as a new wave-based event called ‘Infernal Hordes’, which lasts 90 seconds each. Upon defeating all waves within the time limit, you’ll be able to advance the Well of Hatred and battle the Fell Council. After you slay them, you can spend your Burning Aether gathered in this mode on ‘Spoils of Hell’. There are four categories you can loot: Spoils of Equipment, Spoils of Materials, Spoils of Gold, and Spoils of Greater Equipment (this one guarantees an item with a greater affix.)

There is also a new bunch of weapons and items to wield against the Burning Hells, balance updates, and some accessibility options currently being tested.

Diablo 4 Seasons List

To keep it simple, a season is a three-month period where you gain access to unique content that only applies to the season. That means it'll disappear when the season ends, with new content available as the next one begins. Remember that content will vary between seasons, so while some offer different content, others may introduce new concepts. Luckily, the developers post updates and information about the season before it releases, letting you know what you can expect.
