Seasons are Diablo 3's lifeblood, providing players with a clean slate in terms of characters alongside new challenges to tackle and rewards to unlock. With Season 19 slowly moving towards its end, players are wondering what the Season 20 start date might be.
Here's everything we know about Diablo 3 Season 20's start date and when we can expect it to end.
Diablo 3 Season 20 Start Date
Diablo 3 Seasons are notorious for not lasting a set amount of time, which makes pinpointing a potential Season 20 start date rather tricky at this point.
In recent years, the shortest Diablo 3 Season lasted 11 weeks while the longest went as far as 16 weeks. If the same pattern applies, the currently ongoing Season 19 could end anywhere between early February and mid-March.
There's usually a two-week break in between seasons, meaning the earliest start date for Season 20 could be late February, while the latest could see it beginning towards the end of March or start of April.
Similarly, the Season 20 end date could be anywhere between 11 to 16 weeks from the start date. As there's still a bit of Season 19 to go, Blizzard hasn't unveiled the Season 20 start date just yet, so we'll have to wait a bit longer until we get official word on the matter.
Blizzard has confirmed that patch 2.6.8 will begin its two-week period on the PTR on February 6.
Diablo 3 Season 20 Theme
Season of the Forbidden Archives's theme makes all slots in Kanai's Cube able to select Legendary powers from weapons, armor or jewelry.
This essentially means that you'll be able to select three armor, weapon or jewelry powers, or any other combination of them across all categories. Multiple instances of the same power cannot, however, be stacked.
Three new sets for the Barbarian, Wizard, and Witch Doctor are also being tested, focusing on empowering the Frenzy, Hydra, and Spirit Barrage skills, respectively.
The Crusader, on the other hand, will seemingly get a small nerf that renders the animation of Heaven's Fury's Fires of Heaven rune unable to be canceled early.
