Diablo 3 patch 1.0.5 to add Infernal Machine

By John Keefer, Sep 13, 2012 10:45am PDT

The upcoming 1.0.5 patch for Diablo 3 is still a few weeks away, but Blizzard is already offering a sneak peek at some of the incoming changes, including a few features that will bring back memories of the previous game in the series.

In a post on the official game blog, Blizzard said it is creating a new event called the Infernal Machine, which "will allow level-60 players to battle "uber" versions of some of Sanctuary’s most nefarious bosses. While the rewards for defeating these bosses will be great, some assembly is required." Diablo 2 players may remember the Pandemonium Event in patch 1.11 for Lord of Destruction. The Battle.net-only event offered access to an "Uber Tristram" after players completed several pre-quests.

Also coming in the patch is a new system that allows players a way to make monsters more challenging. Remember the old "/players 8" command in D2? It works along the same lines.

Blizzard expects to release more details on each as the patch gets closer to release.
