Diablo III Anniversary Patch

The Diablo III website announces that the version 2.4.3 patch is now live for Diablo III, launching a new season and adding new hardware support, balance changes, items, bug fixes, and more. This also launches the new anniversary event in the action/RPG sequel, and there's more on the anniversary itself in a new article called Developer Insights: 20 years of Diablo, alongside an Anniversary Sale that's now underway. The event will only run through the end of this month, but it sounds like this will be an annual event from how the patch notes say "that future anniversary events will feature a pre-cursor event available from January 1-3." Here's more on new hardware support and the event:

  • New Feature: 20th Anniversary Event
    • A mysterious group of Cultists is stirring up trouble! Hunt them down in Adventure Mode to uncover clues that reveal a portal into Tristram’s past, and rediscover the terrifying darkness that took hold of the town so many years ago…
    • This event is only available in January
      • Please note that future anniversary events will feature a pre-cursor event available from January 1-3.
  • Hardware Support
    • Support has been added for the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) SDK and Razer peripherals
      • Supported backlit keyboards will respond to certain in-game situations like Legendary and Set item drops, characters leveling up, and more
      • Players will need to update their firmware for supported devices to use this feature
    • Added a 64-bit client as default for 64-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems
      • With this, players should see improvements to system performance and faster loading times
      • This change uses DirectX 11 natively, which brings support for normal maps, per pixel lighting and improved anti-aliasing options
      • The 32-bit client is still available as an option through the Battle.net Launcher
    • Added a screen space ambient occlusion (SSAO) pixel shader option
    • Added a large cursor option
