Diablo III fans on PS4 and Xbox One and those with the base game and expansion on PC have yet another update to explore today as patch 2.4.0 has released. This update includes an entirely new area to explore, Greyhollow Island along with new enemies and bounties. Two areas have been expanded. Ever wanted to explore the royal quarters of Leoric’s Manor? Now you can!
Set Dungeons have been added. What are set dungeons you ask? If you manage to collect a full set of armor, all 6 pieces, you will unlock a clue about where to go to warp to a special dungeon for that set. Unlike most other dungeons these are static, not procedurally generated like other Diablo III dungeons. These dungeons offer special aesthetic rewards from sigils to wings. Both basic completion and mastery level rewards exist, so you better start practicing.
Seasons have been revised. You can now use seasonal rebirth to start your character from the previous season over as a level 1 character. All loot will be mailed to you so any non-season character can pick it up from the mail system for the next 30 days. Seasons will also have a set length starting with season 5, which will last around 3 months. Seasonal legendaries are out, Haedrig’s Gift is in. Completing the first four chapters of the season will earn you a class set. The set will change based on the season. New cosmetics will also be rewarded. It’s currently unclear if seasons will be expanded to the console side, previously they have been unavailable. The video in the article does not make it clear whether they have been added or not.
Fifty new legendary powers have been added to the game, some in the way of new items. Path 2.4.0 will also increase the slots available for storage. 10 tabs on PC. Console players on the other hand will have access to 350 slots rather than 240 slots.
Overall this looks to be another great update. Diablo III keeps expanding further and further at no additional cost. In a world where day one paid DLC is an all too common occurrence, Diablo III continues to deliver new content. Do you still play Diablo III? Will you have to jump back in for 2.4.0?
