Diablo 2: Resurrected Patch 2.5 is live now – here’s what’s new
Patch 2.5 is now available in Diablo 2: Resurrected.
The new content includes Terror Zones, the “new way to experience the journey to level 99 during seasons” which launched on the public test realm a short time ago as a brand new “experimental” feature.
“Terror looms hourly as armies from the Burning Hells increase the power and level of monsters in a specific area, encouraging players to level up and collect loot from locations all over Sanctuary,” teases Blizzard.
Players can also expect Season 2 and six new Sundering Charms to arrive on October 6, with Blizzard calling the first Ladder season an “absolute success.”
“Ladder Season Two kicks off on October 6, ushering in a new opportunity for brave heroes to rush to level 99 and amass powerful loot along the way,” the developer said. “This will also be the first season of ladders with Terror Zones! Can you handle the increased ferocity of the Burning Hells, or will you perish under their amplified power? We can’t wait to see how Terror Zones affect the ranking or , hopefully will allow new players the opportunity to see their name on it for the first time.”
Finally, among general gameplay/quality of life buffs, players will now receive additional warning text at the mercenary confirmation prompt if your previous mercenary still has items equipped, and the damage value for the aura from Paladins’ Thorns is now present in the character menu. .

Diablo 4 developer Blizzard recently released a lengthy blog post outlining the kinds of things you’ll be able to spend money on in its upcoming dungeon crawler – and the things you won’t.
It’s the latest wave of Diablo 4 reassurance from Blizzard following the controversial monetization of its recent free-to-play Diablo Immortal spin-off, in which players argued that you can pay exorbitant sums and become more powerful.
Diablo 4, on the other hand, will feature a cosmetics store and a season pass – “none of which offer food payment options,” said Diablo 4 product manager Kegan Clark.
