Since 1996, the Diablo franchise has been captivating gamers on both single-player and multiplayer levels.
On Friday, March 17, 2017, Diablo III will be ending its ninth season and getting the game ready for season ten, which is set to launch on Friday, March 31, 2017. New and veteran players alike are welcome to participate in the new season. Doing so provides participants with opportunities for new gear, in-game currency in the form of gold, and Paragon levels (levels obtained by completing dungeons and other in-game content after reaching the maximum character level). A season typically lasts around three months, and gives players a chance to compete for a place on the leaderboards. Players may participate in a season solo or with a group.
An expansion is set to be released sometime in 2017, giving players access to a new class (Necromancer). No official release date has been announced.
