Diablo 4 Vessel of Hatred release date, trailer, and new class

At the recent Xbox Games Showcase, Blizzard finally announced the release date for Diablo 4’s first expansion. Initially revealed at BlizzCon 2023, Vessel of Hatred is the first of Diablo 4’s two planned expansions.

Vessel of Hatred release date

Vessel of Hatred release date is October 8, 2024. The expansion continues the dark storyline of Diablo 4. It focuses on the Prime Evil Mephisto and his sinister plans for Sanctuary. Picking up where the story left off, you embark on a journey deep into the ancient jungle in pursuit of Neyrelle. As you strive to untangle Mephisto’s sinister plot, you face an array of new adversaries. The fate of Neyrelle’s soul and Sanctuary itself hinge upon your shoulders.

This phenomenal cinematic trailer, directed by Doug Gregory, highlights Neyrelle’s emotional struggles as Mephisto toys with her mind. Gregory noted that the bond between Neyrelle and her mother is central to the story, with Mephisto exploiting Neyrelle’s hopes and fears with devastating consequences:

“The brutality is there, but if you don’t believe in the relationship between Neyrelle and her mother, the other stuff is fluff. The real pain is the torment of believing your mother is alive for a second, having that ripped away from you, and knowing the person riding shotgun with you – Mephisto – can easily play with your state of mind.”
