New Diablo III Patch Will Make The Game More Difficult

If you have been running through Diablo III’s dungeons with no challenge, then get ready, because the game will be getting three more difficulty levels. Blizzard has announced that patch 2.4.2.

The games three new difficulty levels will be Torment XI-XIII. Along with these new difficulties, players will also be receiving more items. Additionally, players will finally be getting a way to hide the UI for better screenshots, as well as a few extras like more minimap icons, and guaranteed Greater Rift Keys after completing a Rift. As rocky as Diablo III’s launch was, Blizzard has stayed committed to ensuring that Diablo fans get the best they can possibly give them. Below you can read the full patch notes:

  • New Difficulty Levels
    With new power comes a desire to test your strength. If you’ve sharpened your weapons on Torment X and are ready for new challenges, you’ll be happy to hear we’ve added Torment XI–XIII difficulties to the game, and filled them with progressively better loot—so get out there and wreck face, nephalem!
  • New and Updated Items
    As with previous patches, Patch 2.4.2 brings updates to many Legendary and Set Items and also adds a few new items and Legendary powers. Here are some of the items we’ve updated, and don’t forget to check out our PTR patch notes for all the details.
  • User Interface Updates
    Finally, we have a few changes to the user interface. Those who enjoy taking screenshots will soon have a hotkey that hides the in-game UI for cleaner shots. We’re also adding unique pylon minimap icons to Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts, and a unique icon for the Menagerist Treasure Goblin.
  • Adventure Mode Changes
    We’re also sweetening Adventure Mode rewards, starting with Nephalem Rifts. You’re now guaranteed a Greater Rift Key when completing any Rift, with a chance to get a second (or even a third) key as you increase the game’s difficulty. We’ve also adjusted drop rates for Infernal Machines, with a 100% drop chance in Torment IV, and an increasing chance for a second machine to drop as you go up in difficulty.

Diablo III is available now for the PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.
