Another quick hotfix has come to Diablo 4 after Activision Blizzard took issue with players accessing World Tiers they shouldn’t be able to in a small exploit. Diablo 4 Hotfix 11 takes aim at World Tiers 3 and 4, which should only be accessible after players beat the game at lower tiers. Instead, players were jumping into games with other players who had beat the game and were at World Tier 3 and 4, skipping the requirement and allowing for fast leveling. Now, you can’t join higher World Tiers if you haven’t completed the requirements for them.

Activision Blizzard rolled out Diablo 4 Hotfix 11 and its accompanying patch notes (as reported by WowHead) on June 16, 2023. The biggest headliner of this hotfix is the adjustment to ability to join games of players who are in World Tiers 3 and 4. If you have not completed the game on a lower World Tier, for which you wouldn’t be able to access 3 and 4 in the first place, then you can’t join a player in a World Tier 3 or 4 game. There are more fixes as well, which you can see in the full patch notes below.

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved an issue where players in World Tier 3 and World Tier 4 could invite others to their party that were not eligible for those higher tiers.

  • Fixed an issue where all World Tiers would display as unlocked when players may not have met the requirements.

  • Further stability and improvements.

That marks the entirety of the Diablo 4 Hotfix 11 patch notes. For more coverage, including guides and previous patch notes, be sure to follow the Diablo 4 tag.
