A Diablo Immortal update set to release in mid-December will reset Hero’s Journey chapter progress for all players of the Blizzard and Netease crossover RPG. The patch is being touted as Diablo Immortal’s second major update since its release, following the release of Diablo Immortal’s seventh season, which features additional server merges and another battle pass for the fantasy game.

Once again, players noticed that the Chinese patch notes for the most recent update included some details that were not present in the English version. This follows a similar incident in a November patch, in which details about Diablo Immortal’s set-building feature were initially left out of the English patch notes, until the issue was raised with Blizzard. In this case, the missing details referred to a reboot of the Hero’s Journey chapter.

Following discussion on Diablo Immortal’s Reddit page, Blizzard Community Manager ‘SinfulScribe’ reply to clarify that the recent update post has been modified to include these details. The new text reads: “After the server maintenance of our next major update on December 14, existing Hero’s Journey chapter progress will be reset.” It also notes that new chapters will be immediately available to complete at this time, and unclaimed rewards will be delivered to players’ in-game mailboxes.

First of all, this confirms many speculations that Diablo Immortal’s second major update will be released on December 14. Data mining suggests this patch will herald the arrival of Diablo Immortal Hell 6 difficulty along with level 200 and higher challenges, and also introduces a new set of Diablo Immortal Legendary Gems for players to get their hands on.

On top of this, the news that players only have a matter of weeks to complete their current Hero’s Journey, which grants rewards including a new cosmetic portal effect and portrait frame, has left many finishers concerned that they won’t be able to win the items on time. Multiple players responding to the thread Let’s say they are close to completion but, with only three opportunities per day to complete certain tasks and the random chance to determine if some of them can be successfully marked, there may simply not be enough time for some players to finish.

Diablo Immortal YouTuber ‘Darth Microtransaction’ Says In A Video Covering The Datamine That He Views The Hero’s Journey Reboot As A “Mixed Bag”; he explains that “It’s not clear that it was going to restart and [players] I didn’t get a chance to work on it, but there’s also the argument that by resetting it we can get the rewards again.”

It’s certainly likely to cause frustration for those who had been slowly but surely earning the rewards, only to find that their progress is about to reset in a few weeks. For now, SinfulScribe says they have “elevated the feedback provided [about the planned reset] to the development team for consideration.
