Blizzard's Response - Does Each Season Need A New Character In Diablo 4?


After the release of Diablo 4, many fans were very interested in Seasons of the series.

Before You Read

  • After the launch of Diablo 4, many fans will ask Blizzard whether Season series of Diablo 4 needs to create new characters;
  • After fans raised questions, Rod Fergusson has made a clear reply on Twitter. If you want to get seasonal Battle Passes, items drop and achievements, you need to create a new seasonal character;
  • This game method can be understood as each player can use the items of this Season and new characters to restart the game instead of using the characters they have been using, which is not conducive to your game experience;
  • Before Season 1, the players' roles will also be transferred to Eternal Realm. The overall game structure and gameplay are not much different from Diablo 4.

Diablo 4 Seasons

After the release of Diablo 4, Season 1 has become the focus of most fans, and Season 1 is also scheduled to be released in mid-to-late July. But one thing that players are confused about in different seasons is whether they need to create new characters every season to continue the game. This question has confused the fans for a long time, and Blizzard also paid attention to the doubts of the fans, and specially made a statement on Twitter, and the fans got the answer.

Blizzard's Reply

Rod Fergusson said that if you want to participate in the quest line of each season, understand the mechanism of Season, the journey of Season and get Battle Pass of Season, then you need to create a new season character. Or if you're playing a season game with a new season character's partner, you'll get some rewards as well.

Diablo 4 Response

Blizzard's response is quite unexpected for new ARPG fans or new players, because new players themselves are not very familiar with Diablo 4, and it will be more difficult to use new characters to participate in the game. But on the contrary, for long-time fans of Diablo 4, this is exactly what they want to see. In this way, players will have the opportunity to experience the journey and content of each season, and they can enjoy the feeling of becoming stronger again while experiencing it, instead of using their dominant and powerful characters to defeat each other.

Create a New Season Character

After the release of Diablo 4 Season 1 next month, everyone's existing character in the game will be transferred to Eternal Realm. If you want to participate in Season 1 Journey, you need to create a new game character in the game. And choose your available Seasonal Realm to start your game. You can earn XP and farm Diablo 4 Gold during each season, XP will count toward where your Diablo 4 Battle Pass will be and give you access to Season's new questline, progression options. Then, when Season 1 ends, your Season 1 character will also be transferred to Eternal Realm. After Season 2 is released, you need to create a new game character for the new season, Season 3, Season 4 and so on.

Players' Thoughts On Seasons

Although Blizzard has confirmed that when each new season comes, gamers want to create their own new characters, but will the points obtained by exploring Diablo 4 map and unlocking the corresponding activities be reset? This is still a question worth exploring. But in each new season, you still need to re-complete Dungeons, Strongholds and Side Quests to improve the Renown of the game character, but the difference is that you don't need to explore every area of the map like in Diablo 4 , or kill all 160 Altars of Lilith again.

For players, Diablo 4 allows players to skip battles corresponding to alternate characters after completing the corresponding mission once. This will make the leveling process of players in the game faster, so you can access and complete a large number of activities faster, and you can get a lot of XP after completing these activities, such as Dungeons, Side Quests and Tree of Whispers missions. When you complete the corresponding Diablo 4 Seasonal Realms, you will also advance Battle Pass and Season Journey challenges, of course, it depends on your choice.

So far, Diablo 4 players have had mixed reactions to the announcement of Season series. There are many players who are very happy about the schedule tour, because they can experience Diablo's schedule repeatedly and be honed continuously during this process. But at the same time, some players expressed concern about the duration of this training. If the time lasts too long, it will also kill players' interest in the game. And some players said that the upgrade speed of Diablo 4 is not as good as that of Diablo 3, but in Season of Diablo 4, every player will be able to get the XP bonus of season promotion.

In general, Diablo 4's Season series does have points that players are very interested in, but I'm still waiting for Blizzard's views on these issues.
