Longstanding fans of the game have been eyeing the Diablo 3 Season 7 for quite some time now. Although Blizzard Entertainment is yet to bring the new season to live, we have picked up some updates on the rewards as well as the PTR run.
The community manager at Battle.net, Brandy Camel aka Nevalistis recently responded to fan questions about the estimated time of arrival of the new season where she confirmed that it will be there shortly.
Brandy says that the wait is primarily due to a patch that needs to be put in place in order to the Diablo 3 Season 7 to start kicking:
Season 7 will be coming shortly to the PTR – first, we have a patch to deploy and we like to give the patch a couple days to breathe (and address any critical issues, if they arise) before deploying a Season.
She has also confirmed when the Season 7 goes live on the public test realm, the developers will also start a “Focused Feedback topic on the changes coming to the Season Journey.” This will be used by the PTR members to “report any issues or just share your experiences when the time comes!”
While Blizzard Entertainment has not specified the launch dates, we are expected it will take until the next week, but not longer than that.
Although that is all we have for you regarding the launch plans of the new season, there is more. One Redditor has been able to get his hands on the Diablo 3 Season 7 Rewards which all the participants are going to have a chance at.
The user in question has shared a total of six rewards with us, check them out below and see which do you find the most worthy:
- Demon Hunter – Unhallowed Essence
- Barbarian – Wrath of the Wastes
- Wizard – Tal Rasha’s Elements
- Witch Doctor – Helltooth Harness
- Monk – Raiment of a Thousand Storms
- Crusader – Roland’s Legacy
Alongside these, an image of the new portrait frame as well as the new pet were also shared. The size of the image is pretty small, but we are sharing it anyway because you’ll get the idea.
The Season 6 had gone live on April 29, 2016 and conventionally a season lasts for three months. This means that the Diablo 3 Season 7 will not come out of the PTR until the end of July at least. However, the time when it will enter the PTR won’t take too long now.
