Smash and Grab
Brought forth from the Sea of the Damned by the machinations of Captain Flameheart, six Phantom-filled Sea Forts have now appeared around the Sea of Thieves for brave pirates to plunder. With a focus on combat and loot to be liberated, Sea Forts provide a satisfying on-demand experience for battle-hungry sailors or those who may not have time for a longer Voyage. Enter a Fort, cut down its spectral defenders, scour every nook and cranny for hidden riches, and defeat the Sea Fort Captain to gain the key to the Treasury.
Once a Sea Fort is cleared, you can make the most of its home comforts – including the well-stocked Homestead room with chairs and a blazing fire to put your feet up and share a well-earned grog with your crew. Just be prepared to defend your little sanctuary from other crews who might want it for themselves!
Piercing the Veil
Narrative-driven Adventures will continue throughout Season Six and beyond, keeping the Sea of Thieves world and lore in constant motion. Adventure 2, ‘Forts of the Forgotten’, will soon pick up the thread from the recently concluded ‘Shrouded Islands’. But another story-centric feature is also set to make its mark later in Season Six. Legend of the Veil, a new Voyage exclusive to Pirate Legends, will send you out hunting for lost Veil Stones across dramatic new locations and facing an ever-changing series of challenges. From haunted islands and shipwreck graveyards to a climactic naval battle against a Ghost Garrison, this is a Voyage you don’t want to miss!
To complement this Legendary content, the maximum rank achievable with the Athena’s Fortune Trading Company will be raised from 20 to 30. With a host of new cosmetics, Commendations and achievements on offer, get ready to continue your climb to the top in Season Six!
Pirate Emporium Plunder
For pirates keen to boost their Seasonal reward pool, the Season Six Plunder Pass is headlined by the complete set of items making up the brand-new Spring Blossom ship set, alongside the evolving Forest’s Blessing costume which transforms as you climb the Season’s 100 levels. As always, Plunder Pass items are temporary exclusives before heading to the Pirate Emporium sometime in the future.
Other standout selections new to the Pirate Emporium in March are the loud and proud Islehopper Outlaw ship set with matching costume, weapons and even a banjo – perfect for the wild-hearted hellraisers, rabble-rousers and ruffians of the seas. Or if you can’t help striking a pose at a moment’s notice, style it out with the Bunch of Posers Emote Bundle. While you’re browsing the Emporium’s new wares, remember to pick up this month’s free emote too!

Diablo II: Resurrected Ladder Season 2 Now Live
- Jump into the second Ladder Season of Diablo II: Resurrected
- Unlock Terror Zones – frequently rotating areas that offer higher difficulty battles, more XP, and chances for better loot, all for a more epic level-up experience.
- Dominate the demons that have until now eluded you with 6 new Unique Grand Charms that allow you to break specific monster immunity types.
Sharpen your swords and muster your might – Ladder Season 2 of Diablo II: Resurrected is now live, including new Terror Zones and Sundering Charms. Beginning October 6, you can jump into the action and make your climb up the leaderboards as you slay the demons that lie in wait. Plus, experience all the quality-of-life updates, bug fixes, and more added in the recent Patch 2.5.
Ladder Season Two
Ladder Season Two ushers in the next opportunity to race to level 99 and amass powerful loot along the way. This season will introduce Terror Zones and Sundering Charms, helping you battle foes that cross your path! For those new to Ladder Seasons, you might be wondering what happens to your Shared Stash loot once the current season ends. Once Ladder Season One ends, all Ladder characters will transfer to their respective non-ladder group. All items in that character group’s shared stash go into a new Withdraw Only set of Shared Stash tabs, denoted by a check marked Past box. Players can withdraw any items they would like to keep throughout all of Ladder Season Two. When the season ends, this withdraw-only set of stash tabs will be overridden with any items in the Ladder Season Two Shared Stash. Make sure you retrieve any items before then or they will be lost forever!
To make the journey to level 99 accessible to a larger population of players, offer more variety other than repeatedly farming Baal, Diablo, and Nihlathak, and most importantly, remain challenging, Terror Zones have been introduced. When playing a Terror Zone-enabled game, every hour, diabolical tremors infused with the Lord of Destruction’s unwavering corruption overtake specific zones, terrorizing the monsters within, making them at least two levels higher than your current level or their original level, up to a maximum per difficulty. The XP received and loot dropped by killing terrorized monsters will be based on this new level. You can visit our latest blog for even more details on how monster levels will be impacted.
To unlock the Terror Zones feature, you must defeat Baal per character, per difficulty using any expansion character – existing characters that have already fulfilled the requirements will automatically have this feature unlocked. Once Ladder Season Two begins, players will need to meet those unlock requirements to experience Terror Zones on their new ladder characters.
New Sundering Charms
In Hell difficulty, monsters can receive resistance increases above 100%, making those monsters immune to specific damage types. Previously there were only a handful of ways to reduce a monster’s immunity, which means only a small portion of hero builds could successfully farm all zones. To solve this scenario and promote increased class build diversity, we’ve introduced six Sundering Charms that allow the player to break specific monster immunity types while the charm is in the inventory of new Ladder characters. Keep your wits about you, for these new unique charms will only drop from Terrorized monsters of Champion, Unique, Superunique, or Boss difficulty.
Diablo® II: Resurrected™
Diablo® II: Resurrected™ is the definitive remastering of Diablo® II and its Lord of Destruction® expansion—two hallmark entries in Blizzard Entertainment’s genre-defining action role-playing series. Veteran players, as well as those who missed out when the original game was first released on PC twenty years ago, can now experience Diablo® II’s timeless gameplay with modern visuals and audio that take advantage of today’s gaming hardware.
Ascend the Forgotten Tower, blaze a trail through the jungles of Kurast, and storm the gates of Hell to defeat Diablo himself. Then, scale the peak of Mount Arreat to face Baal, the Lord of Destruction, in Worldstone Keep.
Seven of Sanctuary’s greatest champions await at the iconic campfire screen—the Amazon, Assassin, Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Paladin, and Sorceress. Each is highly customizable with countless build and gear options for players to explore.
Diablo® II: Resurrected can be played as a solo experience, or grab some friends and enjoy up to 8-player online multiplayer co-op. Then blow off some steam and claim a few ears by engaging in thrilling PvP duels outside of town.
