If you want to join up with friends who are already playing the game, they’ll likely be playing the seasonal content, and you can now click “Skip Campaign” and jump right in for all the multiplayer action right away if you want. you wish. Here’s how to play cooperatively with friends in Diablo 4. Season of Blood is the second season of Diablo 4 and is a lot of fun with friends. Is season 2 worth watching? I certainly think so and I had a great time.
