One element of Diablo 3 that is confirmed to return is the time-limited Seasons. These are post-game bits of content which refresh the ways legendary items function and also remix the game's content of the game's base game and add replayability to a game that's already incredibly replayable. Seasons were available for a considerable amount during Diablo 3, so we're hoping they'll be a huge focus during Diablo 4.

In all of its legendary story as a series this is the only fourth mainline installment. Diablo 4 can be a game that will make the industry slow down and pay attention Blizzard once more, but this time with the right motives.
While some may be dismayed by the concept of Diablo 4 followers either way they have become an integral component of the action game's combat. I asked Blizzard what plans it has regarding aides in Diablo 4, and while they did not reveal too much however, it seems like followers will be added to the roster at some point.Speaking with lead class creator Adam Z.
