|BlizzCon Recap: Day 2||November-5-2016 6:05 PM PDT (7 years ago)|
The second day of BlizzCon 2016 is winding down! Weâ€™ve just wrapped up our Dev Talk and Q&A panel during which we shared more exciting content coming to Diablo III. In case you missed it, we have a helpful summary of the news below so you can stay up to date with whatâ€™s in store for the game.
Play Seasons On Console
Weâ€™re bringing the fresh experience of starting over in Seasons that PC and Mac players have enjoyed to the PS4 and Xbox One! For those who arenâ€™t familiar with them, Seasons offer the chance to earn a full six-piece class set for achieving certain goals, while also granting new pets, cosmetic items and more.
If thatâ€™s not enough, youâ€™ll also be able to race against other players for the chance to earn a coveted spot on the Seasonal leaderboards. How far will your Season Journey extend? Thereâ€™s only one way to find out! Keep an eye out for this feature starting next year.
Save Space With Crafting Mat Storage
With all the enemies youâ€™ve been slaying, chances are youâ€™re using a good part of your stash space to store crafting materials. To help with this, weâ€™re adding another improvement: the ability to store your crafting mats in a brand new tab, freeing up precious space in the process.
With this change, youâ€™ll also be able to more easily transmute items using Kanaiâ€™s Cube. No matter whether you decide to spend your crafting mats a little at a time, or in one massive spree, theyâ€™ll always take up the same number of inventory slots: none at all.
New Items, Enemies and More
In addition to the above, weâ€™ll also be adding in new enemies, improving Rifts and Greater Rifts, and â€“ of course â€“ adding brand new Legendary item powers for you to enjoy. Plus, youâ€™ll soon get a free additional chance to upgrade your Legendary Gems in Greater Rifts if you complete one without dying.
And thereâ€™s more! Weâ€™ve got a change thatâ€™s to dye for â€“ Myriam the Mystic now has a new tab in her interface that lets you change colors on your gear quickly. Hunting down vendors and taking up inventory space with pots of dye will soon be a thing of the past.
Explore All New Zones
There are more places to see in Sanctuary, and youâ€™ll soon be discovering a few of these in Adventure Mode which come with their own new Bounties and events.
The desolate, fog-enshrouded Moors have been occupied by armies and empires over time. Beneath them lies the Temple of the Firstborn â€“ a place of evil unlike anything youâ€™ve seen before. Catch a glimpse of these two new areas below, and look forward to exploring them next year.
Try A New Build With Challenge Rifts
Have you ever seen someone using a particular build and wanted to try it out for yourself? Starting next year, youâ€™ll be able to do just that â€“ and you wonâ€™t even have to gear up for it either!
Challenge Rifts are an upcoming feature which snapshot an actual playerâ€™s build from the game each week and let everyone take it for a spin in a static dungeon. If youâ€™ve been hoping for a way to discover new builds while racing to beat your previous personal best in Greater Rifts, this is your chance.
Weâ€™re working hard to bring all of this and more to you in the coming months, and we canâ€™t wait for you to experience it all for yourself and tell us what you think!
Are you ready for the challenges ahead, nephalem? Let us know, and weâ€™ll see you in Sanctuary!
