Brawl Stars season 2 Summer Of Monsters start date set for this week

Supercell have announced a second live season for their hugely popular mobile battler, Brawl Stars. Titled The Summer of Monsters, season 2 crams Brawl Stars with a slew of fresh content including a new Brawler, new game modes, and new skins for your favourite characters. There will also be a new Brawl Pass, complete with plenty of reward tiers to unlock.

Brawl Stars players may have noticed a new update available today, paving the way for the upcoming season. Supercell have now confirmed that season 2 will start on July 6th, running for a total of 10 weeks. This should give Brawl Stars fans plenty of time to snap up those Brawl Pass rewards before they’re gone!

Our new Brawler for season 2 is Surge, a beefy robot sporting some interesting gameplay mechanics. Firstly, his main attack will split if it makes contact with an enemy Brawler, hitting additional nearby targets for damage.

Then we have Surge’s ultimate ability. With each ultimate charge you can essentially upgrade Surge’s basic stats, the first upgrade increasing his movespeed, the second upping his attack range, and the third splitting his main attack into 6 projectiles upon hitting an enemy instead of two. Sounds pretty powerful, right? Well here’s the catch: getting KO’d will remove these upgrades so when playing Surge you’ll need to know when to chase and when to ease off.

Brawl Stars season 2 is rocking a superhero/kaiju vibe embodied by its new game mode: Super City Rampage. Here Brawlers will band together to fight a giant monster across 5 quests.

Of course there are plenty of other treats in store for Brawl Stars players as part of this update. For the full list of new skins, features, and Brawler balance changes, see the update notes below.
