We now know when Season 3 of Diablo 4 ends – When does Season 4 start?

Published

on

In the livestream on March 20th, the developers of Diablo 4 announced that the current Season 3 would be extended. This also means that Season 4 will start later. You can find out what this is all about and when the new season starts here on MeinMMO.

The most important thing from the stream:

  • The item system is being revised. There will be new crafting mechanics, which also influences the aspects. This means that legendary aspects are saved directly in the Codex of Power when you dismantle items. The variety of affixes is reduced and adjusted so that there are no longer so many.
  • There will be new content, a new boss and a new activity “The Pit”, where you will find new materials, the “Stygian Stones”, with which you can summon “level 200” versions of the bosses .
  • The PTR (Public Test Realm = public test server) will come into play soon – but the start of Season 4 will be postponed to May 14th.

Before all the changes and new content finally arrive in Season 4, the developers want to make the PTR available. At the same time, they are extending the current season so that the Diablo 4 team can evaluate and incorporate the players' feedback for the start of the season.

Season 4 comes four weeks later than planned

When does Season 4 start? The end of Season 3 in Diablo 4 was actually noted in the game on April 16th. A small change in the banner showed the season transition when you start Diablo 4. If you open Diablo 4 now, the changed date in the banner will show May 14, 2024.

This means Season 3 will be extended by four weeks. The reason for this is the PTR that the developers will soon bring to the game:

We're delaying (the season) by a few weeks to make sure we apply all of the feedback from the PTR to Season 4 to ensure that any new changes we make are correct and work for the community.

So Season 3 will now end on May 14th and of course Season 4 will begin on May 14th.

What is the PTR? The PTR is a test server where players can test upcoming content earlier to give the developers feedback. The PTR runs from April 2nd to April 9th ​​and will be available to all PC players via Battle.net.

In the future, other platforms could also get a PTR, says Adam Fletcher. In the coming week there will be concrete information about the start of the PTR, as well as the patch notes for the update.

What's coming in Season 4? So far there is still no known theme for the new season. What is certain is that the item system will be adjusted and new crafting mechanics will come into play. The Code of Power is also being revised.

There will be new bosses, a new endgame activity and the option to zoom further out of the game. In addition, the Hellfloods are also available at World Tiers 1 and 2 in Season 4.

The developers also want to respond to feedback on a skin package from the shop. In a bundle you could purchase different colored portals, but only use one specific color per class. The team wants to change that.

When it comes to community feedback, the developers of Diablo 4 repeatedly emphasize that they find it very important and helpful. However, some players complain that Diablo 4 is worse than it could be because the developers want to please everyone.
