Season 4 Mid-Season Patch Coming Next Week, Season 5 PTR Soon After

Staff Avatar by Staff

Blizzard have dived in to some juicy upcoming updates to Diablo 4! We’re getting the mid-season update for Loot Reborn next week, with the patch notes coming this Friday. But that’s not all, as the Season 5 PTR will be coming after that, with a Campfire stream to talk about the new season as well.

Global Community Development Director Adam Fletcher explains all the details below:

Hello Wanderers

We first want to start by thanking everyone for jumping into Season 4 and experiencing the revamped systems introduced with Loot Reborn. We are also thrilled to see the excitement around Vessel of Hatred where we announced the release date of October 8th this past weekend at the Xbox Showcase. We are excited to share more as we head toward launch, and you all can expect more information on July 18 when we do a deep dive into the Spiritborn class coming with the expansion.

We want to take some time to provide some clarity and updates on a flurry of things heading to Diablo IV in the upcoming weeks.

The next update hitting Season 4 will be our mid-season patch. As you all know, mid-season patches include a ton of significant updates to the game related to class balance and more.

We will be releasing patch notes for the mid-season update (Patch 1.4.3) this coming Friday (June 14) and will be releasing the update sometime next week.

Typically we host a livestream for our mid-season updates, but we instead will be hosting a separate livestream next week on Friday (June 21) to talk about the next season in our Season 5 PTR Campfire Chat. We will have more information on that soon.

Originally we had our mid-season update coming after this PTR concluded, but we agreed releasing the mid-season update prior to the PTR would be better for all players.

Why is that? Well, the Season 5 PTR would have some of these changes coming with the mid-season update, and we didn’t want to create any type of whiplash for players as they go from finishing the PTR back to Season 4. Due to this, we believe delivering the mid-season update sooner will be the best for everyone.

As you can see there is a ton going on in the world of Sanctuary. We look forward to sharing more in the upcoming weeks and will have more information on Season 5 PTR including stream times and more next week.

Thank you
~Diablo IV Team
