The start date of Diablo 3 Season 25 has not yet been announced by Blizzard, but there are several indications that we are only a few weeks away.

The latest news is that testing for the game’s next PTR build, including Season 25, has been completed, removing one of the newest hurdles from launch.

A message from the Diablo team confirms: “PTR 2.7.2 testing has ended. Thank you all for your contributions and support. See you next season.”

With testing now complete, Blizzard could launch Diablo 3 Season 25 in the coming weeks. But since Season 24 ends on December 4, there’s no chance the next update will arrive this month.

However, based on previous months, we would expect the new season of Diablo to start between December 10 and December 17.

And just like in the past, some gamers will wait longer than others to play. Those using PS4, Xbox One, or Switch consoles will likely have to wait 10 hours longer than those on PC, due to the way Blizzard performs updates and maintenance.

Meanwhile, Diablo developers have also shared a complete rundown of what they have planned for Season 25, including news about the Soul Shards theme and evolution.

Season 25 introduces the new type of socketable item, which will be available in seven forms. These will also be unique Soul Shards based on the Lords of Hell, giving players demonic new powers.

One of the 3 Prime Evil Soul Shards can be equipped in Helms and one of the 4 Lesser Evil Soul Shards can be equipped in Weapons. Each Soul Shard can be upgraded three times with a new seasonal exclusive item, the Hellforge Ember.

Soul Shards and Hellforge Embers can fall anywhere in Sanctuary, but Soul Shards are more likely to fall from Bosses. Soul Shards cannot be traded, but can be salvaged or used in Caldesann’s Despair.

A developer note on Season 25 adds, “With the upcoming 25th anniversary of the Diablo franchise, we wanted players to delve into the dark side of Nephalem’s past.

“In Season 25, players can embrace evil by infusing themselves with the essences of the Lords of Hell. Players begin their Season Journey to discover and upgrade demonic Soul Shards based on the seven Lords of Hell.

“By embodying a Prime and Lesser Evil, players will inflict new forms of pain and suffering on the demons of Sanctuary. We can’t wait for players to get their hands on Soul Shards to unlock their true power.”

Blizzard has not shared its plans for the Season 25 release date, but is expected to reveal the schedule for Diablo 3 very soon.
