Diablo Immortal Update Offers New Class Change, Patch Notes Revealed

Blizzard Entertainment has today released a new patch for Diablo Immortal across PC and mobile devices. The update is one that primarily gives players the option to change their class upon reaching a certain level in the game. And while this is something that players should find greatly helpful, there are a number of other tweaks in this patch as well. 

To go along with the new class change feature, Diablo Immortal has added a number of other things are part of this patch. Some of the most notable additions include a new endgame feature called Hero's Journey. In tandem with this, a new Helliquary boss has now come to Diablo Immortal to go along with a new limited-time event called the Adventurer's Path.
