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.

King Leoric, perhaps better known amongst Diablo 3 players as the Skeleton King, is the next character to be confirmed for Blizzard's MOBA Heroes of the Storm.

The winds of change are blowing and Blizzard has given us all a preview to Patch 2.3.0 for Diablo III. There's quite a bit on the menu and most notably is the addition of 'Kanai’s Cube', which looks to surpass the legendary Horadric Cube.

An overhaul of the crafting system is in the works too as they make it "easier and more fluid" with our crafting mats 'never wasted' as items "dynamically adjust" to our level. They're cranking it all the way to Torment X.

In an effort to dispel the gossip coming out of Diablo III's taverns, Blizzard has reiterated there "are no homicidal heifers" terrorising the land. Incidentally, avoid going into the wilds between now and May 21st.

It's an obvious prank and call it "udderly ridiculous" and "full of bull". Nephalim are also advised to avoid strange portals that "may or may not lead to alternate planes of existence".

Blizzard looking to "disable permanent Crowd Control" in future Diablo III patch

The introduction of the Greater Rifts in Diablo III's Adventure mode has led to a rise in 'zero DPS' builds to nullify mobs of monsters so other players can tear through them quickly.

This 'drive for efficiency' has led to issues, and Blizzard is now looking into tweaking the experience. One solution is to "disable permanent Crowd Control" to "create more interaction".
