Patch 2.3.0 has dropped for Diablo 3, bringing dedicated hack-and-slashers their next slice of frenzied looting. It adds a new zone, various new item and armour sets, and introduces a new set of challenges and unlockables in Season 4.

Blizzard has kindly summarised most of the new goodies in an extensive blog post here. I would just like to point out that one of the new Legendary-tier items you can hunt down is a tiny kitten pet for the Witch Doctor which causes opponents to pull their punches when attacking him for fear of hurting it. That's a bit of gear I can get behind.

Patch 2.3.0 for Diablo 3 is currently playable on the Public Test Realm, and it brings a whole bunch of new armour sets for hardcore looters to hunt down.

Some of them are pretty crazy. Diablo's Crusader class is pretty intimidating at the best of times, but they look a whole lot worse with a skull helm on and racks of candles across their spauldrons. Very 40K.

Exactly what does Kanai's Cube do? Blizzard has posted a new Patch 2.3.0 Preview focusing on the 'Horadric Cube successor' that can "extract a Legendary power" and add it to a collection list.

This is a huge boon to Nephalem who've been hoarding certain Legendary items in Diablo III because of their Legendary perk. Now we can amass them and select to 'equip' three.

The new snowy Adventure Zone coming to Diablo III with Patch 2.3 now has a trailer from Blizzard. In their Ruins of Sescheron preview blog on Battle.net they tease more of this region's past and present fate.

Sescheron fell to the mighty legions of Baal, the Lord of Destruction, in his march on Mount Arreat - which didn't turn out so good for the forces of light guarding the World Stone. This new zone is found in Act III.
