Diablo 3 Season 24 looks set to be a special one for long-term fans, with powerful new items and challenges launching this week as part of the big update.
D3: Season 24 is kicking off for gamers on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch around the same time, but there could be start time differences depending on what platform you are using.
The Season of Ethereal Memories includes new rewards and Legendary Items to collect, as well as Powerful new weapons to wield.
As confirmed by Blizzard in the official patch notes, Ethereals are a new weapon-type that players will be able to acquire and hunt for as part of their seasonal journey. Originally featured in Diablo 2, there will be 21 iconic weapons making a return to get players ready for the Resurrected release in September.
Ethereals will roll a powerful set of affixes, a random Class Weapon Legendary Power and a random Class Passive Power.
Ethereals will also boast unique icons, names, item types, and sounds originally found in Diablo 2.
And with these new weapons being hyped as being the weapon to wield during Season 24, there is a lot of interest in finding out when everything will begin.
The Diablo 3 Season 24 start date has been set for Friday, July 23, 2021, with an official launch schedule shared by the development team earlier this week.
This includes the Season 24 release time, although console and PC players might have different wait times.
Previous seasons of Diablo 3 have launched on Battle.Net ahead of the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions outside of North America, and this could be the same thing that happens this week.
DIABLO 3 SEASON 24 RELEASE TIME NEWS
Blizzard has confirmed that the Diablo 3 Season 24 release date is Friday, July 23, 2021.
The development team has also revealed that Season 24 will start at 5pm for most Diablo fans.
The full schedule confirms that D3: Season 24 begins at 5:00 p.m. PDT in North America, 5:00 p.m. CEST in Europe, and 5:00 p.m. KST in Asia.
However, Diablo 3 console gamers might have to wait a little longer, with Season 24 possibly launching at 1am BST on July 24.
