A new Diablo 4 update is on the way with version 1.1.3, and to help players prepare for it, Blizzard has already released all the Patch Notes for it.

Ever since the disaster that the Diablo 4 Season 1 update was, Blizzard has taken the initiative to release patch notes for upcoming updates before they officially release them in-game. This allows players to get an idea of how some abilities will change.

In this article, we’re going to break down the most important changes in Diablo 4 Patch 1.1.3 and when you’ll see them live in-game.

Diablo 4 Patch 1.1.3 Update Release Date

Diablo 4 Update 1.1.3 will go live on August 29, 2023, for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. The update will introduce a balancing update to the Crowd Control effects of enemies, along with other improvements.

Blizzard has not confirmed the exact time the update will go live, but if it aligns with past updates, then we’ll see it around 10 AM PT/1 PM ET/6 PM BST. As soon as we get the exact confirmation, we will update this article.

Diablo 4 1.1.3 Update Patch Notes

Here are some of the most important changes coming in the Diablo 4 1.1.3 Patch:

  • Crowd Control Sources will get a heavy balancing update to ensure enemies do not spam skills that apply certain status effects.
  • Death Explosions from fire-enchanted enemies will do 20% less damage.
  • Improvements to navigation in the Paragon Glyph Board when using a controller.
  • Achievements, Trophies, and Challenges will progress together when playing cross-platform.
  • There were abilities that would sometimes affect players other than the caster, so Blizzard has fixed this.
  • Players will no longer lose Abberant Cinders when entering a cellar.
  • Treasure Goblins (Level 15-40) drops were bugged, but they’ve been fixed to guarantee a Legendary Item drop.
  • There are various other fixes that Blizzard made to fix the overall stability and gameplay of Diablo 4 with update 1.1.3. You can take a look at all of them here.

The most important change is the Crowd Control one since players in World Tier 3 and 4 have expressed how frustrating it can be when clearing Nightmare Dungeons, where enemies constantly spam these attacks.
