The Immortal Throne event has begun!

When you visited the Immortal Throne in the Ruins of Sescheron in the past, a message saying "The time is not right." would appear. Apparently, the time is right now! From today on, the torches will light up on the path there and Chief Elder Kanai's spirit will rise from his throne to open a portal. This portal will lead to Kanai's Stomping Grounds, a version of the cow level, just without the cow queen or the abundance of chests. Inside, Kanai's spirit will help you slay the bovine beasts in typical Barbarian fashion.




This may well be a limited time event only, so be sure to check it out as soon as you can!

Blizzard is hiring for a new game in the Diablo universe

The Blizzard careers page now lists open positions for a Senior Concept Artist, a Senior Character Artist, and a Lighting Artist for an unannounced project in the Diablo universe. From the content of the job offers and the positions themselves we can assume that the project is still rather early in development and that it will be a 3D game. So we're looking at a potential Diablo 4 or another triple-A spin-off, rather than another expansion or Soulstone: Heroes of Sanctuary. But knowing Blizzard time, we won't see much of it for a few years at least.

Below is an excerpt from one of the job listings.

We’re looking for artists who demonstrate a strong understanding of how light, shadow, and color set the tone of an environment as well as guide the player.
