Diablo 3 RoS: Ladder/Seasons mit dem 1. Major Content Patch!
Wie Game Director Josh Mosqueira soeben bestätigte, wird die heute erschienene erste Diablo 3 Expansion Reaper of Souls mit dem ersten grossen Inhaltspatch, der in den nächsten Monaten erscheinen wird, um die von vielen Fans heiss erwartete Ladder bzw. Seasons erweitert.
Ausserdem sind als weiteres Highlight dieses Patches sog. Tiered Rifts und Seasons-Exclusive Legendaries als Belohnungen für die Ladder und die Rifts geplant. Damit wäre die Katze endlich aus dem Sack, und wir erwarten mit Spannung die Details zu den neuen Features in einem Blog!
Seasons And Ladder-Like SystemOne of the features you guys have asked about a lot, that we have done a lot of research for, is something called ladders. I'm happy to say that as part of our first big content patch in a couple of months, we will be releasing Seasons, which will include a ladder-like aspect to them. We're still working on them, but the general gist is that you'll level up a new character, we'll have specific ladders for Seasons, and also some goodies that will drop along the way. There's more information of that to come, and we're not making an announcement of when, but that's coming in the first major content patch – not the first patch, but the first major content patch.
Seasons-Exclusive LegendariesThere will be more legendary items in the future, both for rewards of Ladders, and also rewards from the Tiered Rifts. For the current ones, we probably are not going to revisit them. They all take time to do and I'd rather we were adding new legendary items, and the time is better spent on new legendary items than going back to refit old ones.
Tiered Rifts And LeaderboardsThere is another major feature in the patch 2.1, which is going to be what we're internally calling tiered Rifts. The idea is a challenge scenario, where players do increasingly hard Rifts, to see who can get the farthest. You do your bounties, you do a Nephalem Rift. If you clear it, there's a chance to get a Greater Rift Token. If you successfully do that, you'll get a Greater Rift Key (rank 2), then Rank 3, etc.. Much like seasons, we're going to have a leaderboard as well, so you can see who got to the highest tier Rift, and what time were they able to obtain on that.
