Blizzard announced the theme of Diablo 4’s third season, Season of the Construct. In Season of the Construct, players will gain a Seneschal Companion with its own unique abilities and equipment slots.

The Season of the Construct will begin on January 23, and bring back Diablo 3 villain Zoltan Kulle, as well as an entirely new enemy type.

Beneath the sands of Kehjistan, the demon Malphas has gained control of the Loom, powerful technology designed by Kulle and his partner Ayuzhan.

In the new Seasonal Questline, Ayuzhan will guide players through the new Gatehall town and the ancient Vaults as they battle against the newly awakened constructs and defeat Malphas.

Early in the questline players will gain access to their own construct, called the Seneshal Companion. The companion can be augmented through Governing Stones and Tuning Stones, which customize and enhance their abilities.

Stones are rewarded by completing Vaults, defeating constructs, and progressing through the Season Journey.

The new season will also add The Gauntlet, a fixed dungeon that rotates each week. Players compete for a  top spot on the leaderboard, with top honors gaining a permanent place in the Hall of the Ancients.

The season also comes with a new 90-tier battle pass of unlockable cosmetics and in-game currency, including 28 free tiers.

Season of the Construct begins January 23. Diablo 4 is available on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. It’s rated M for Mature.
