The Next Major Update for Diablo Immortal Lands Tomorrow

Diablo Immortal

The next major update for Diablo Immortal lands tomorrow, and with its new content and gameplay tweaks, it should keep players occupied until the launch of Diablo 4 at least.

The highlight of the May update for Diablo Immortal is undoubtedly the Helliquary Gauntlet. It’s essentially a boss rush mode, allowing players you to take on a sequence of bosses. If they succeed they’ll gain valuable rewards, and also maybe a decent position on the leaderboards. Those hitting the top ten will even gain access to an exclusive frame. And they’ll be able to keep it if they’re still there by the end of the season. There’s just one catch: to unlock the Helliquary Gauntlet, players need to defeat Catarag, the Strangling Sun, on Hell Difficulty VIII.

Also added in tomorrow’s major update for Diablo Immortal is Fractured Planes, a new limited-time event that’s available between 10th-24th May, challenging players to complete a 15-floor gauntlet. It’s set to be a tough one, too, stripping players of their hard-earned gear, gems and skills. Instead, players will begin with set selection of skills based on their class, and they’ll need to find new unstable gear to power themselves up.

Thankfully special coins will be available that can be used to purchase new gear as well. But if you want to take this new gear out of the Fractured Planes, you got to succeed. Make it to the end of the gauntlet dying less than five times and you’ll be able to select a small number of the items you’ve found that you’d like to keep. One of these will be given to you, with the rest disappearing into the ether.

There are other additions in the Diablo Immortal May update, including yet another limited-time event, the Scorched Sea. You can read about that, as well as things such as class balance changes and new Shady Stock via the Blizzard website. There’s information about the new Season 13 Battle Pass, too.
