Diablo III brings a lot of new, interesting features to the table with the new 2.3.0 patch that has been expected for a while now. Patch 2.3.0 is live and it has been released a little bit earlier than Blizzard first announced it. It was originally scheduled for August 28th, but it looks like Blizz didn’t want to keep Diablo fans waiting for a couple of extra days.
Kanai’s Cube manages to tackle a lot of new details that will make players enjoy the game a lot more until now. The new act is going to take them through a new adventure and the crafting system has been reshaped to offer an amazing experience.
What is really cool about the game now is that, with the aid of Kanai’s cube, you can actually take away special features from legendary items and bind them to yourself for extra stats. If you want some extra strength, but your gear is only focused on another stat, that’s ok. You can take strength from legendary gear and bind it to your current set and go smash things in the world.
A lot of new loot has been included and there is also a cross-game promotion underway that wants to link as many Diablo players to Heroes of the Storm and vice versa. By purchasing Diablo III, players can now unlock Diablo as a hero in Heroes of the Storm, which can also save you an extra $8 in Heroes, or 7,000 gold that you would have to grind in a few weeks.
A very important part of the new Diablo experience is explained by Blizzard in a short video about the expansion. King Kanai was named after a very dear team member, Kevin Kanai, who has previously worked on many Diablo features such as The Ice Cubes or the weather features in a lot of regions in the game.
Kevin Kanai passed away during the development of the Diablo III and this patch is not only a very new and interesting experience for the players, but it also honors the memory of a lost co-worker and friend who invested a lot in Diablo and many things that players enjoy up to this day.
Diablo’s fourth season is going to commence on Friday, August 28th just as scheduled and Blizzard is also known for wanting to bring the game to the consoles, a feature that has been demanded many times by the player base. While there is no official news on whether seasons are going to be included or not, Blizz announced that it is looking into it.
