Diablo 4 Season 4 appears to bring a major overhaul to the game. So much so that Blizzard is launching a Public Test Realm so players can test it out before it goes live.

Diablo 4 is still firmly entrenched in its third major content update, Season of Assemblies. That doesn't mean the development team isn't already looking toward the future, though.

The story of Diablo 4 so far has been one of more or less satisfied players. An unconvincing first season drew heavy criticism before Season 2 surprised players. Finally, Season 3 finds itself somewhere in between.

During a recent Campfire Chat, the Diablo 4 development team announced their plan to ensure Season 4 strikes the right balance.

Blizzard will launch a Public Test Realm (RPT) for Diablo 4 Season 4 to fine-tune the experience before launch

Joseph Piepiora, Associate Game Director for Diablo 4, explained this initiative. He clarified that Season 4 will see a massive overhaul of several systems. “ Season 4 goes well beyond the changes in scale and scope we made in Season 2. “, he developed.

While Season 3 is still active, the Season 4 PTR will launch and players will have the opportunity to experience it and provide us with their feedback. “, he continued. The goal is to ensure that Season 4 gets off to a strong start thanks to direct player feedback.

Season 4 will address many more reward concerns and itemization issues. “, explained Piepiora. It looks like these items will be present in the PTR for players to test, along with some class balance changes.

What the Blizzard team describes as a “ mini beta test » will only be available via PC Battle.net. This unfortunately means that console players will be excluded. It also appears that an RPT will not be available for each new season of Diablo 4. This will be on a case-by-case basis and “ will depend on the extent of the changes » coming in the game.
