Blizzard’s Next Diablo 4 Campfire Chat Spills the Beans on Patch 1.2.0

Diablo 4

Diablo 4 patch 1.2.0 arrives soon, kicking off the Season of Blood, and Blizzard is hosting a campfire chat to share the details. You know, other than there being blood. And vampires.

The campfire chat takes place this October 10 at 11 a.m. PDT / 7 p.m. BST, on the Diablo Twitch and YouTube channels. Aside from divulging the details of the patch, Blizzard’s Diablo 4 team will touch on the game’s balancing, including “damage balance, Resistances, Item Power, Unique items, and Class balance.”

That’s a wise move, since one previous patch was an absolute disaster. It shook things up so much that players were considering jumping ship and, in all likelihood, some went through with it. Blizzard will be looking to avoid that scenario.

October 17th is the day that Diablo 4 patch 1.2.0 drops, which is also when it arrives on Steam. So it’s going to be quite a big deal, provided the Steam page isn’t review bombed the moment it gets up. Overwatch 2 has had a similarly negative response when it hit Steam, so Blizzard may be feeling a little nervous about that one.

He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
