At BlizzCon 2023, the first expansion pack for Diablo IV – Diablo IV: Vessel of Hatred. Judging by the trailer, Diablo IV: Vessel of Hatred takes place in the jungles of Torazhan, which we visited in Diablo II. The player will be looking for Mephisto, which is not surprising given the ending of Diablo IV.

The expansion will most likely add a new act to the game and, of course, a new class of heroes, which, according to the developers, we have not yet seen in the Diablo series.

The release of Diablo IV: Vessel of Hatred is scheduled for the end of 2024.

To be honest, this is a rather early announcement, not even six months have passed since the release of the main game. Back in the day, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, the first expansion pack for Diablo III, was announced a year and a half after the game’s release, and released two years after Diablo III. It seems that players are already a bit bored with the season system in Diablo IV, and therefore Blizzard is in a hurry to release the expansion.
