Remember how Blizzard told us that it just wasn’t going to implement its Diablo III season campaigns for the game’s console versions? A year later and it seems that either the studio had a change of heart or its technical wizards figured out how to make it happen because console seasons are about to kick off at the end of this month.
On March 31st, both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will enjoy their very first seasonal journey in the game, offering players an opportunity to level up new characters to pursue special challenges. Players can either create a brand-new character from scratch for the season or choose to “rebirth” an existing character back to level 1 for the duration of the event.
Diablo III’s seasons come with a lot of extra content, including special rewards, seasonal conquests, and leaderboards. The first console season will coincide with the 10th season for PC players “to create parity going forward” between the platforms.
In more immediate Diablo news, patch 2.5.0 has gone live this morning, primarily focused on adjustments to greater rifts.
