Before a new season begins Blizzard gives their fans an opportunity to test out the upcoming season in Public Test Realm (PTR). This PTR is a beta testing of sorts where Blizzard collects feedback before the actual launch to identify any issues etc. The upcoming Season 26 is in the PTR phase these days hence the end of Season 25 is near.

The exact conclusion for Season 25 isn’t out yet, though PTR lasts for a couple of weeks and according to the trend this will end by the end of March. So with the end inevitable stock up and utilize the Souls Shards as they will be going out soon.

Diablo 3 Season 26 Details

This season will introduce, a first time in the game’s history, a time-limited game mode called the Echoing Nightmare. This mode will bring in a horde mode as many other games have in the past, most notably COD: Zombies, where players have to stand their ground while they are constantly being stampeded by waves of enemies, and surviving the longest is the objective.

This new mode is described by the developers as “an optional and rewarding end-game challenge where players fight within the memories of Nephalem who fell in a Greater Rift. Today’s Nephalem must stand their ground until they are inevitably overwhelmed or defeated.”

Conquering the new game mode will reward you with the following:

  • EXP
  • Legendary Items
  • Blood Shards
  • Gems
  • Legendary Gem, Whisper of Atonement
    • Whisper of Atonement is a new Legendary Gem used exclusively for Augmenting Ancient Legendary items

That is everything we know so far regarding Diablo 3 Season 26. If you are part of the PTR do comment below and tell us everything that is new. And for everything gaming-related stick to our website.
