The start date of the 3rd Diablo Season and release times were confirmed for August 23 and those will include new rewards and bonuses for D3: Season of the Triune players.
The new season of action is coming to Diablo 3 on Xbox One, PC, PS4 and now the Nintendo Switch.
Blizzard has recently announced new seasonal rewards and Legendary item updates for their newest Diablo 3 event.
Who gets to enjoy the new season first
The shortest waiting time will be experienced by PC players because Diablo Season 18 on Battle.Net launches ahead of the console versions.
It was confirmed by Blizzard that PC players will see the launch of new seasonal rewards and different special items at 5pm local time (wherever players live). This means that on the PC, Season 18 begins Friday, August 23 at 5:00 p.m. PDT in North America, 5:00 p.m. CEST in Europe and 5:00 p.m. KST in Asia.
Unfortunately, the same system isn’t in place for console players, which means that console users are going to have to wait longer for the 18th season of Diablo 3, which is expected to arrive at around 1am in the UK, on Saturday, August 24, as a message from Blizzard explains:
“Seasons go live for all console players globally Friday, August 23 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, regardless of which regional version of the game you may have.”
The 18th season of the game is set to run for months, which is great news for players who feared that they won’t have enough time to catch up.
