Seasons and ladders being added to Diablo III with next major content patch

It appears that Blizzard has listened to Diablo III players, and announced that seasons and ladders will be added to the game with the next major patch.

“One 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,” game director Josh Mosqueira wrote on the Battle.net forums.

“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.”

Players will be able to earn new legendary items during seasons, according to Mosqueira. “There 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.”

Patch 2.1 will also introduce Tiered Rifts, which offer a challenge scenario where players take on increasingly challenging rifts.
