Diablo 4 patch 2.7 notes

Diablo 2 Resurrected: Ladder Season 4 is here, here’s everything we know about our next climb into the Burning Hells.

While fans await Diablo 3‘s final season and Diablo 4, the mobile game Diablo Immortal, and remastered Diablo 2: Resurrected are both still going strong. Ladder mode is essentially Diablo 2’s version of seasons, but it works a little differently from Diablo 3 or Immortal’s Battle Pass.

Now, Season 4 of Ladder is here, along with update 2.7 bringing with it some quality-of-life adjustments and feature updates. Here’s everything coming to the game in the Ladder Season 4 and update 2.7.

Diablo 2 2.6 update
Diablo 2.7 update will be coming soon.

When is Diablo 2 Resurrected: Ladder Season 4?

Diablo 2 Resurrected: Ladder Season 4 went live on May 4-5, 2023, depending on timezone differences.

Any characters in Season 3 of Ladder will be transferred to non-ladder groups, essentially making them no-longer seasonal characters.

Any items from the first season of Ladder that are left over in the shared stash will be removed once Season 4’s update arrives, so for any items you want to keep, move them to your inventory – just be aware some items will still be deleted.

Items from Season 3 will still be available until the end of Ladder Season 4, just make sure you remove them by the time that ends.
