Players can experience the Magistrate’s assault in the Siege of Ascension Peak, a limited-time game mode that captures the hectic battle.

Soul Eater Jenos will only be available during this event, and is free with the purchase of three new skins introduced with the event: Academic Skye, Demon Hunter Zhin, and Jade Priestess Seris. Each skin comes with free bonus content.

Season 2 changes include extensive balance changes, a new 2-ban system, and a ranked ladder reset.Players will re-qualify for the ladder, where new rewards await, after just 10 placement matches.
