Alognside the premium DLC will be ongoing free content in short seasons referred to as “Seasons of Sin.” The first part, Act 1: Greed, will be released on March 30.
Each part will include a “visually distinct” contract as well as specific sin-themed items and outfits that can be used in any missions once unlocked. Greed will take players back to Dubai, a location now overflowing in gold coins. Here players can find a new Escalation called The Greed Enumeration where they’ll be able to carry items between the three stages. Those who complete the Escalation will unlock the Rapacious Suit, while there will also be the Greedy Little Coin and The Devil’s Cane to use.

Greed will be followed by Pride, Sloth, Lust, Gluttony, Wrath, and finally Envy. Each act will be available for purchase separately for $4.99. Alternatively, players can purchase the Seven Deadly Sins Collection for $29.99, which will give players to all of the acts as they’re released.
The first part of the Seven Deadly Sins Collection arrives on the same day as the Berlin Egg Hunt and the March monthly update. The developer has confirmed that the free live content will continue to appear, only now the schedules will no longer be referred to as roadmaps. Instead, this content will be part of a Season of Sin that will last between 4-6 weeks and will include Escalations, Featured Contracts and Elusive Targets.
