Recap Diablo 3 Patch 2.4 Before It Releases Next Week

Posted:2016/1/27 12:55:26


Next week, console and PC players of Diablo 3 will be able to visit Greyhollow Island, test their mettle in Set Dungeons, spend gold on Empowered Rifts, and collect even more legendary items. The brief recap of what is to come can be found on Battle and includes an overview on each of the upcoming features.

Patch 2.4 for Diablo 3 includes a new map ready for exploration. Greyhollow Island is delivering a little story to the games Adventure Mode with new journal entries and events. New enemies and mystery shroud the island ready for the player to discover them. Find out more about the island and the events that led to its desertion and the myths that surround it by traveling there after the patch releases.

Two existing zones are also expanding with new bounties and events. The Eternal Woods and The Ruins of Sescheron zones can now be explored even further. The Diablo 3 patch also introduces new Set Dungeons designed to challenge characters wearing a full set of their favorite set armor. These dungeons are pre-generated and unchanging, created to challenge the character based on the set that they are wearing. While wearing all six set pieces, a character will need to travel to Leorics Library to start their journey toward a Set Dungeon. The recap piece seems to indicate that completing one of these Set Dungeons will reward the player with cosmetic wings.

Empowered Rifts are also coming to Diablo 3 with Patch 2.4. These rifts are just Greater Rifts empowered with gold, giving the player a fourth chance to upgrade their legendary gems upon rift completion. The rift must be successfully completed in order for the fourth chance to appear. According to the official patch notes, the gold cost to empower the rift will vary depending on the Greater Rift level.

As previously stated, patch 2.4 is expected to release next week. Current generation consoles and PC will both receive the update next week as confirmed by the Diablo 3 team on Twitter. Like earlier updates, Diablo 3 on consoles will not patch with Season features since Seasons do not run on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. All other content found in the patch notes will come to the console editions, however.
