When does Hearthstone Battlegrounds Season 8 start?

While we don’t have an official release date for Hearthstone Battlegrounds Season 8 yet, we have a good guess that it’ll start somewhere around August 2024.

As usual, with this new Season we should get a new Battlegrounds Track filled with new cosmetics that follow a theme, as well as a new Season Pass. Assuming the pricing doesn’t change, you should be able to get the Season Pass for either 1500 Runestones (if you buy it in-game) or $15 (if you get it from the Battle.net shop). The Season Pass unlocks extra cosmetics, but — perhaps more importantly — it allows you to choose from four heroes instead of two on every game. So while the pass is not required to play the game, it does sadly give you a distinct gameplay advantage.

Season 8 should also shake things up gameplay-wise once more. There might be minion roster changes, and perhaps a rotation in mechanics as well — usually, with every new season, features like Buddies, Anomalies, and Quests get rotated in or out in order to refresh the experience.

Hearthstone Battlegrounds Seasons are analogous to expansions for Constructed Hearthstone, lasting for about four months each. They’re always released on x.2 patches:

So there you have it: based on the previous release schedule, we expect Battlegrounds Season 8 to start around August 2024 — though it’s also possible that it might arrive a little bit earlier than that. We’ll see you on the Battlegrounds!
