Season of the Malignant is starting July 20, and Diablo 4 has just revealed all the cool new Uniques and Aspects that are coming to the game with the new update.
There will be a total of six new Uniques added in Patch 1.1 - one for each class, and one generally usable (but incredibly rare!). We will also get seven new Legendary Aspects - two general, and one for each class - all of which can be found in any World Tier.
Patch 1.1 that brings all of these new toys is already live, so you can find these items playing your characters in the Eternal realm. However, note that the Season of the Malignant starts on Thursday (early Friday for EU) - that's when you'll be able to start a new character on the brand new Seasonal Realm!
