Diablo 3 Season 29 is coming, so here’s everything you need to know about our final trip to Hell, at least in Diablo 3. Diablo 4 is also now here for more adventures with demons.

A Diablo 3 Season 29 initially looked unlikely in the run-up to Diablo 4’s release, the final season is now here. The game is winding down as all the Nephalem of the world move over to battle Lilith in Diablo 4 – which is now here, so see what we thought of it.

However, Blizzard Diablo 3 Season 29 is here and as promised, will be the final season of Diablo 3 before the devs turn most of their attention to Diablo 4. While Season 29 will represent the end of an era to many, it’s also the start of a new Hellish chapter. Diablo 3 Season 29 will be the last fully supported season, the devs have confirmed that seasons of Diablo will continue, but won’t feature any new content. Instead, they’ll recycle and remix content from older seasons.

Here’s everything we know about our final trip to eliminate Diablo in Season 29 of Diablo 3 – at least until he’s inevitably resurrected again in Diablo 4.

Diablo 3 Season 29 details

Diablo 3 Season 29 will be themed as Visons of Enmity, and will bring some new gameplay balances, bug fixes, and other quality-of-life adjustments. The season will see echoes of the past begin to manifest in the game’s world as, remixing ideas and enemies from previous seasons, making 29 Diablo 3’s swansong.

These portals will be known as Diabolical Fissures and will give those playing Season 29 some fun tasks to complete and areas to explore, all based on previous areas and enemies. The season will also make the previous theme, Rites of Sanctuary a permanent setting and will make it playable across all modes.

What will happen after Season 29?

Diablo 3 Season 29 will be effectively its last, at least for new content. However, Season 30 and beyond will exist, only each season from 30 will recycle old content going back to Season 1 and so on.

The developers have said that the game essentially remix old seasons, including old cosmetics and themes that comprised those seasons. While this will be a sad day for many Diablo 3 fans, those who are yet to experience much of Diablo 3’s seasonal content will at least get the chance to do so, and the game will remain supported by Blizzard.
