The third Season of Diablo 3 starts tomorrow, heralding a fresh start and a promise of exciting loot. Along with the reset, players can expect to find new Seasonal exclusive weapons, armour and gems; players who reach level 70 will be rewarded with a spiffing transmog set piece. Also, according to Blizzard, Season 3 will aim to last around four months, as they further test the waters for a fitting Season length.
Believe it or not, but Blizzard are still trying to figure out exactly how long Seasons should last. “We generally feel that Season 1 was on the long side, and that Season 2 was on the short side.” explained senior technical game designer Wyatt Cheng. “We want to strike a balance between having enough points in time when we can all commence this journey together, but also allow enough time for characters to mature.
“Expect Season 3 to be at least 4 months long. While the exact end date is not yet known, we plan on once again giving 2 weeks’ notice before Season 3 ends.”
To make sure you’re at the starting line and ready to go when the gun goes off, here’s when Season 3 starts for your region:
North America: Friday, April 10 @ 6:00 p.m. PDT
Europe: Friday, April 10 @ 6:00 p.m. CEST
