Diablo Immortal recently released season 7 and with it comes a new Battle Pass called Ancient Guardian, which consists of 1 free version and 2 purchasable versions.
In Diablo Immortal, players can uncover the untold history of what took place between Diablo II and Diablo III. The mobile version of the game is quite similar to its predecessors, as players can step into the well-renowned fictional world, Sanctuary.
There is an array of activities to enjoy in Diablo Immortal, but it is recommended that you mainly focus on completing the main story quest, as it is a guide to the game.
The game’s developer, Blizzard, occasionally introduces new content, events, and quests to the game to keep players motivated to play it. They recently added a new Battle Pass called Ancient Guardian, from which you can acquire various rewards.
What is a Battle Pass?
In the video game industry, a Battle Pass is a type of monetisation approach that provides additional content for a video game, generally through a tiered system. Players can earn rewards for playing the game and for completing specific challenges.
Battle Passes tend to have different versions available. All players in the game can access a free version, and a premium pass can be purchased with real-life money.
Once you have selected a version of the Battle Pass, you will be presented with a number of reward tiers. If you collect enough experience to complete the tier, you will earn a reward.
Diablo Immortal: Ancient Guardian
Diablo Immortal’s season 7 is upon us, and with it comes a new Battle Pass. Season seven’s official description reveals that the last living remnants of a bygone era, temple guardians, are monolithic beings that are made of steel and stone.
Unlike the divided natures of the Nephalem who created these constructs, they are incorruptible. In recent times, these defenders have been patrolling the grounds of ever-decaying dwellings to protect their secrets from trespasses.
A new Battle Pass comes to Diablo Immortal that is devoted to converting players into a construct, and with it, Season 7 begins on Thursday, 24 November 2022.
The Ancient Guardian Battle Pass contains 40 ranks worth of challenges and rewards, including crests, hilts, and legendary gems, amongst other things.
Players who are interested in additional rewards from their Battle Pass can either update their Battle Pass to the Empowered Battle Pass or the Collector’s Battle Pass. However, it is noteworthy that upgrading your Battle Pass to either of these options requires real-life money.
The Empowered Battle Pass features all rank rewards from the free version of the Battle Pass, but it unlocks an Empowered Track that provides additional rewards at every rank.
Players who purchase this version will get the Ancient Guardians Weapon cosmetic at rank 1, and the enchanted Ancient Guardians Armor cosmetic at rank 40.
While the Collector’s Empowered Battle Pass gives players access to all rank rewards and cosmetics from the Empowered Battle Pass, it also offers you the Ancient Guardian Avatar Frame and a Portal Cosmetic.
Furthermore, you will also benefit from a ten-rank boost, which activates immediately after purchase.
When does Season 7’s Battle Pass conclude?
It is essential to note that Season 7’s Battle Pass will end on 22 December 2022. This gives players enough time to complete certain tasks and objectives to climb the ranks of the Battle Pass and to earn all the available rewards.
Even if you choose not to purchase one of the paid versions of the Battle Pass, it is recommended that you try to rank up as quickly as possible. This is because even in the free version, you can earn rewards that can have a great impact on your gameplay.
How to gain access to the Battle Pass
Players should keep in mind that the Battle Pass only unlocks once they have completed the first few introductory quests in Ashwold Cemetery. Your character has to be between level 15 and level 20 to get the notification that the Battle Pass is available.
Once you get the notification, you can either select the free version or you can purchase one of the paid versions to receive additional rewards.
Is it mandatory to purchase a Battle Pass?
The cosmetics that you receive from the paid versions of the Battle Passes in Diablo Immortal are quite unique, as you will not be able to acquire it otherwise.
However, the other items can be procured by simply playing the game. If you are interested in the cosmetics, you should purchase a Battle Pass.
However, if you are not one for cosmetics, it is advised that you rather follow the free version of the Battle Pass. Purchasing a Battle Pass does not have any effect on the progress of your game, and therefore, it is not mandatory to purchase it.
