Stay a while and hey! Listen! Or something like that; I get confused trying to keep track of all the RPG quotes these days.
When we say “Seasons” are coming to Diablo III, we’re not talking about seasonal changes in weather being added into the game like it’s some sort of The Sims expansion. We’re talking Leaderboard Seasons – it’s kind of like what’s currently keeping Hearthstone fans constantly progressing their public ranking in order to unlock unique card backs each month. However, because Diablo III is about a bajillion times more complex with intricate systems and massive scale, the Seasons heading to the game are a little more in depth than what you’d find in Hearthstone.
Over the next few days, Blizzard will be releasing update patch 2.1.0, which will add seasonal challenges into the game. Seasons have been in the pipeline for a while now, but by this week Friday they’re going to officially kick off. Get ready to lose yet more time to Diablo III.
