If you’ve been playing Diablo III on consoles then you may have been waiting for news on the Seasons update, which lets players rank up in levels for a limited time to gain better rewards. However this update will not make it to consoles due to the nature of how Seasons works, with the new content requiring an always online connection. The restriction was explained by Kevin Martens in a statement to Gamespot over the weekend. Though he also stated that console players do get things PC players don’t/
“Seasons requires always online, and that’s one of the major differences in the ecosystems there. For seasonal conquests and things to be what they are, everyone has to be playing on the same levelled field. That’s a great example for something that doesn’t work for consoles. On the PC side, given the history of it and the auction house and all that, we took out trading of the most powerful items, Legendaries, unless the other player was there when it dropped. Instead, we replaced it by just being way more generous with stuff so people don’t miss that.”
The Seasons patch is already live on the PC version of Diablo III if you wish to try it out.
