“Season of the Construct” Event Coming to Diablo IV Next Week [Trailer]

Blizzard is looking to drag you right back into Hell with the announcement of “Season of the Construct”, the new upcoming event in Diablo IV. Kicking off on January 23, players will venture into the deserts of Kehjistan to discover new dungeon-type Vaults with the aid of a brand-new seasonal robotic Seneschal Companion.

The story for the event centres around the Loom, an ancient technology created by Zolton Kulle and Ayuzhan of Caldeum, which has been usurped by the Demon Malphas. You and your companions will team up with Zoltun’s former companion, Ayuzhan, to defeat Malphas and his deadly Constructs. The Gatehall, a new town center underneath Kehjistan, will serve as your base of operations in the fight.

As part of the Seasonal Questline, you will acquire your very own Seneschal Companion, which will fight by your side and can be customized to fit your playstyle. Using magical Governing and Tuning Stones recovered from the Vaults, you can augment the Seneschal. Governing Stones determine which attacks your Seneschal perform, and Tuning Stones augment those skills and provide greater utility.

Season of the Construct will also unveil a new dungeon type known as Vaults, which are filled with various elemental Hazards and a new monster family know as The Constructs. At World Tier III, Nightmare Vaults will unlock. When entering a vault, you can convert Pearls of Warding and be blessed by Zoltun’s Warding, a special layered blessing that grants access to riches within the Vaults. These will diminish stack by stack if you fall prey to the Hazards within. Pearls of Warding can increase the risk by exchanging them for stacks of Zoltun’s Warding, but success will see your reward increase as well. Pearls of Warding can be obtained from destroying Elite Constructs during Arcane Tremors in the overworld.

The update will also introduce new quality-of-life improvements to Diablo IV. Helltides will now always be active with a 5-minute rest once per hour. For those using their trusty mouse and keyboard on PC, you will now be able to traverse Sanctuary by using W-A-S-D keys. An extra Stash Tab will also be available. Other improvements have been made to reallocating your skill tree, UI when trading Gold, and increased rates to earn summon items for the Beast in the Ice and more.

Diablo IV is out now on PC via Battle.net and Steam, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
