Although the big Diablo III-related announcement at Blizzcon this year was the new Necromancer class, Blizzard also made another important announcement: Diablo III's seasons are coming to the console versions of the game.

Seasons will arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One "early next year," according to Blizzard, with the PC and console versions both starting Seasons 10 at the same time.

Our Take
On PC, Seasons have been a big thing for a while. Seasonal characters get access to the newest gear first, before being rotated into the main game. They offer a great way to start fresh every once in a while, and them coming to consoles will allow PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players to check in with the game every once in a while and feel like they're working towards something new.
