If you play Blizzard’s Diablo 3 on a console like the PS4 or Xbox One, then you will be pleased to learn that after 3 years, the Seasons feature is finally arriving for consoles, according to a recent post by Blizzard on the Diablo 3 website, a feature that was previously only available for PC gamers.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Seasons feature, “Seasons are a fresh way to experience the game as though you were playing it for the first time—complete with rapid character leveling and gear upgrades. While a Season is active, players can create characters that are separate from their current non-Seasonal characters.”
“Your first character in a Season will start completely from scratch. Each additional Seasonal character can only share progress with this character. When the Season ends, these characters will become non-Seasonal and any items, progress, or Challenges they’ve earned in the Season will be available to non-Seasonal characters.”
In addition to Seasons, the update to version 2.5.0 for consoles will also bring about new rewards, cosmetic upgrades, and UI tweaks, all of which should help to create a more uniform experience across platforms, although unfortunately cross-platform play is still unavailable.
