Diablo 4: here are all the new features of the huge Vessel of Hatred DLC at €40 | Xbox

As could be expected, the Blizzard teams took advantage of the Xbox Games Showcase to further reveal the Vessel of Hatred expansion for Diablo IV, but above all to communicate its release date. In addition to that, the studio revealed everything to expect from it!

The new class and region of Vessel of Hatred

Vessel of Hatred will allow players to take advantage of a brand new class: the Sacresprit. Members of the Sacresprit class are ultimate predators of the jungle. These exceptional beings master mystical synergies that can only be activated in the heart of the jungles of Nahantu. Play as the Sacresprit class and harness the ethereal spirits of this ancient civilization.

Although this class remains shrouded in mystery, all its secrets will be revealed on July 18, where the team will detail this completely new addition.

Who says new extension, obviously says new region. The vast Nahantu area expands the Sanctuary universe and is waiting for you. Veterans may remember that Nahantu was already part of Diablo II.

Roam abandoned ruins, explore new towns, and discover the dungeons, strongholds, and warring tribes of this region. Will you be able to survive the hellish jungle of Kurast or the desert plains of Teganze?

A whole new chapter in history

Nahantu will provide the opportunity to discover a new chapter in history. Your mission to find Neyrelle, captured by a primordial demon, will lead you to the heart of an impenetrable jungle. Try to thwart Mephisto's sinister plot while facing new threats ready to destroy you. The fate of Neyrelle's soul and her ability to stop the primordial demon from devastating Sanctuary rest in your hands.
