During BlizzCon 2023, Blizzard Entertainment finally revealed its first paid expansion for Diablo 4 – Vessel of Hatred, which ventures to Torjang. As rumored, Mephisto will be the focus this time, and players can expect a new class unlike anything seen in the series. While the expansion is a ways off, we won’t have to wait too long for more information.
During the BlizzCon Campfire Chat, community director Adam Fletcher said there will be more news next Summer. Series GM Rod Fergusson also appeared on Force Gaming’s stream to clarify that the developer didn’t want to “light the hype fire” and “make it too big to just cool off eventually, leading to players having to wait for a long time.”
He said that the big reveal is planned for early next Summer (in “about six months or so”) and provided more details on the new class and story. As for the BlizzCon reveal, “We wanted to give enough to keep players interested but not go crazy and then have them wonder what’s going on.”
There’s plenty of other Diablo 4 content coming soon. The next patch goes live on November 7th and adds five new Unique Rings with powers from Season of the Malignant. The Abattoir Zir also arrives on December 5th, providing a six-week end-game event for level 100 players, while the first seasonal event, Midwinter Blight, goes live on December 12th. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks.
