  • Unlock an All New Battle Pass: With this Season’s Battle Pass purchase, you’ll immediately unlock the celestial-connected Selene. Progress through the Battle Pass to unlock Doom Slayer, The Ageless, and more. Later on in the Season, you’ll be able to unlock monster hunter for hire, Geralt of Rivia.
