Diablo 3 Patch 2.4.0 Ruins the Game PS4 Fans

Nothing excites game freaks like new patches to every game obviously because of the goodies and freebies that comes with them. But the sun may be setting on Diablo 3 for the same reason. Blizzards, the brain behind Diablo, earlier this week released a patch for the third in the Diablo series.

The patch simply known as Patch 2.4.0 comes with new locations, expansion to existing areas and a little tweak  to existing features e.g Adventure mode.

As nice as their idea looks, it appears the patch has caused terrible problems for PS4 and Xbox One users as they have trooped to Blizzard’s official forums and other popular game forums such as NeoGAF to voice their frustration.

A user on Diablo forums that goes by the name Tovahcupcake wrote about how as soon as he downloaded the patch, he went into t10 rift and all hell broke loose. He complained of bottom lag which increases when there is density. He said he has only been able to play single player because of the lag. If you are one of those that crave for patches you may just need to have a rethink on this one.

With the kind of outburst the release has generated, we may get to see another patch sooner with bug fixes from Blizzards.

Have you seen the new patch? What has your experience been like? Tell us.

    They took the awesome looking glowing green lightning animation away from the legendary lightning gem and now it’s a barely visible thin white lightning that i have to squint at my screen to see. I feel as if I’ve been kicked in the gut by some bully. I’m really sick of Blizzard’s mentality of removing cool or fun things.

  • “If you are one of those that crave for patches you may just need to have a rethink on this one.” I don’t play on a console (Blizzard games), but on a computer, you have no choice. You patch or you don’t get to start the game, so not entirely sure people can ‘avoid’ patching or can consider ‘rethinking’.
