Patch 2.4.0 For Diablo 3 Unveiled At BlizzCon

BlizzCon 2015 came and went, and dropped plenty of awesome announcements with a cool movie trailer for Warcraft (which you can check out here!). But for fans of Diablo 3, they received some good news with the upcoming patch 2.4.0, which brings along a whole bunch of new content to the game.

Diablo 3 Patch 2.4.0

While there’s plenty to go through on the patch (which you can check in detail here), a feature list was released during BlizzCon 2015 which gives an overview of all the changes and content coming on Patch 2.4.0:

“New Zone: Discover Greyhollow Island: A mysterious and deadly island home to all manner of strange creatures. 
Bonus Areas: Explore the External Forest and the Royal Quarters-new bonus areas that were previously inaccessible to the heroes of Sanctuary.
Set Dungeons: Once you attain a six-piece set, complete objectives in these dungeons specifically designed to test your mastery, and earn unique rewards and achievements! 
Empowered Rifts: Spend gold to gain a 4th bonus roll when successfully completing a Greater Rift.
Revamped Class Sets: Many existing sets have been improved, and four-piece class sets such as Might of the Earth and Thorns of the Invoker have had additional pieces added to bring them up to six pieces. 
New Legendaries: Collect many new rare items of unprecedented power, including game-changing Legendaries across all classes.
Season Journey Updates (PC only): Complete the first four chapters of the Journey and you will be guaranteed all six pieces of one of your class sets. Get two at a time at three different points in the Journey. Thrilling new conquests and awe-inspiring cosmetic rewards await!
Action Combat: The fun killstreak rewards from the Ultimate Evil Edition are coming to PC! This popular console feature provides giant massacre bonuses based on the number on monster kills you chain together. 
New Kanai’s Cube Recipes: Psst! We will neither confirm nor deny that we’ve added a few new extra-secret recipes to Kanai’s Cube. Where’s the toll-free Blizzard Hint Line when you need it?
Rebirth: Instantly reset and move a non-Seasonal character directly into the new Season. 
More Stash Space: All PC players can buy a sixth stash tab for in-game gold. Earn an additional stash tab by completing the Season Journey for the next Season and do so in future Season as well to earn a maximum of ten tabs per account. Ultimate Evil Edition players will be able to buy additional stash space for gold, increasing their maximum capacity from 210 slots to 350 slots. 
Buff UI Update: We’ve cleaned up the buff bar in multiple ways to make it easier to track which buffs you have active at any given moment.”

Most fans of the game will probably be excited to check out the new location called Greyhollow Island. As for how the new location will be like, here’s what Blizzard had to say about Greyhollow Island:

“Explore a new stretch of Sanctuary by venturing to Greyhollow Island! This mysterious forested locale is steeped in intrigue, and rumors abound that those who visit are doomed to never return. Brave the wild beasts and supernatural creatures and unravel the mystery behind the tragedies that have occurred here. This new zone is exclusive to Adventure Mode, but be forewarned; the land itself is said to be hungry for blood.”

Based on the images that Blizzard released, Greyhollow Island looks to be an excellent addition to the locales of Diablo 3. But that’s not all, Blizzard still has a slew of features that they intend to bring with the Patch 2.4.0. The patch will be dropping in the Public Test Realm (PTR) over the following weeks with information on how to join to be released by Blizzard shortly.
