PS4 and Xbox One users will get a new season of Diablo 3. Season 18 will also be coming to PC and Nintendo Switch. The next D3 event from Blizzard will see players receive various rewards and Legendary item updates for the new season.
Season 18 + Rewards Launch
Blizzard has announced that Season of the Triune will start on the 23rd of August but not all platforms will have access to the new season at the same time. In an unexpected twist of events, PC users will access the new season first, with console users having to wait a bit. Usually, gaming content comes to PC after the console players are nice and happy.
The new rewards will be available for PC players first on the 23rd of August ant 5 PM. The devs have coordinated the launch so that users across the planet will have access at the same local time. So, if you run the game on PC, the new rewards will launch at 5 PM, your local time.
Blizzard have put Europe last on the list to get access to season 18 as the event for the UK launch will take place in the UK at 1 AM, on the 24th of August. The rest of the world will have access to the game on the 23rd of August at 5 PM Pacific Time.
3 months to play the season
There is no rush to complete everything in season 18 of Diablo 3 because it will run for a few months. Plenty of time to get those side quests solved. Blizzard have commented on the duration of the season:
“We are no longer providing anticipated end dates for Seasons. However, we are committed to keeping Seasons roughly three months in length (give or take a few weeks based on development needs) and will continue to provide a minimum of two weeks advance notice for when the Season will be ending.”
Class set rewards
The successful completion of Chapters 2 through 4 will reward you with three of Haedrig’s Gifts. Class sets are contained in each of the gifts. A class set can be unlocked once per season by opening a gift. So, have a think about what you want to rock in Diablo 3. Here are the sets from Haefrig’s Gifts in season 18.
