Diablo 3 may have had a rocky beginning, but the thing that saved the game was the implementation of Seasons. These goal-oriented events reward players for plot-related grinding, giving them some of the best gear sets in the game. It’s a good deal considering Diablo 2 players used to pray for random drops to give them a single piece of a gear set. It provides the players clear goals to grind for and keeps the game fresh and engaging. So, as Season 24 is coming to a close, when will Season 25 grace our computers and consoles?

What is the start date of Diablo 3 Season 25?

Season 25 will be working out its bugs on the Diablo 3 PTR from November 4 to November 18. Season 24 will be closing out on December 4. So, after that, Season 25 could be released any time. Many fans speculate it could be anywhere from November 26 to anything as late as December 17. However, the most popular and assumed date is December 10. So, finish up everything you want to do in Season 24 because Season 25 is coming faster than you might realize.

What’s included in Season 25?

While the main goals for each Season are often the same, they all have their intricacies and changes. The biggest deal in Season 25 is that the game will be adding Soul Shards. These are insertable artifacts (like gems) that you can put in your helms, weapons, armor, etc. As this is nearing the Diablo franchise’s 25th anniversary, the devs wanted to tap into the demonic side of the Nephilim. Ergo, these Prime Evil and Lesser Evil-inspired shards will give players Diablo, Baal, Mephisto, and other demonically inspired buffs. 

Otherwise, Season 25 will release with the normal rewards: new gear set rewards for each class, a new pet, and various new cosmetics. Hopefully, you’ll either find a brand new beloved build or be able to enhance your favorite classics.
