Blizzard's Rod Fergusson confirms that Diablo 4 will require players to utilize a new character every season.
Blizzard's Rod Fergusson has confirmed that Diablo 4 players will have to make a new character to sign up for seasonal content. This news may be upsetting to Diablo 4 players who're new to the Diablo franchise, especially because so many have invested a lot of time in leveling up their characters already.
Reaching Diablo 4's max level cap isn't an easy feat. To put into perspective precisely how serious the Diablo 4 max level grind is, level 85 hanging around is technically the halfway reason in terms of just how much XP one should reach 100. It's reliable advice that many gamers will not be interested in starting over with a brand new character and never only needing to level completely up again but additionally repeat a lot of the same content they have already been through.
Unfortunately for all those individuals, Blizzard's Rod Fergusson has confirmed on Twitter that getting involved in Diablo 4's seasonal content requires players to produce a new seasonal character. This means the ones that want to stay with the character they've now are going to be missing out on the "seasonal questline, mechanics, season journey, and battle pass." While this was expected by longtime Diablo players, those a newcomer to the franchise might be confused and annoyed by this.

After all, other live service games do not require players to begin from scratch with a brand new character to see seasonal content, so it is going to be interesting to ascertain if this decision alienates some of Diablo 4's community. It's easy to observe how some gamers should not make use of the seasonal content after they realize they've to create a new character.
There has recently been some concern and controversy over how Blizzard could be handling Diablo 4's seasonal content. Many fans were concerned about how Diablo 4 would handle renown using the seasonal resets, as players were stressed about needing to potentially rediscover the whole map or search for all the Altars of Lilith again. Luckily, Blizzard confirmed that would not be the case.
Diablo 4's first season is expected to begin next month, so it is going to be some time before fans from the action RPG can easily see if the seasonal submissions are worth the grind. Those who're uninterested in following Diablo 4's seasonal stories can easily wait for that expansions to be released before they jump back into the game, obviously. The Diablo 4 DLC expansions do not have release dates at the time of this writing, but Blizzard has confirmed that a minimum of two have been in development.
