By on

Blizzard know how to make their games relevant to the current trend.

Fallout 4 has already out around the world, even some game publishers would love to join the trend of its popularity without breaking any copyrights, and Blizzard knows how to make a great Easter Egg for Fallout.

In their patch 2.4 for Diablo III, there is a legendary gem that shows hints on where its reference came from. The gem is called Boyarsky?s Chip, for Fallout fans out there, it is a direct reference to Leonard Boyarsky, who was the art director of Fallout and the game designer for the gameplay elements of Fallout 2, and he also worked on the development of Diablo III. As for any direct reference to the lore of Fallout, this is actually similar that from the Water Chip, that is a crucial item in the first Fallout game. It also has a description that is making a pun.

?This fragment of a gem, called a chip, was discovered in an underground vault by old man Boyarsky, who fashioned in into the beautiful gem it is today. It damages those who would damage its owner, and once inserted into a socket, it will never fall out.?

Patch 2.4 also featured some new additions for Diablo III:

  • New Feature: Greyhollow Island
  • New Feature: Expanded Zones
  • New Feature: Set Dungeons
  • New Feature: Empowered Rifts
  • New Feature: Season Rebirth
  • New Feature: Revised Buff Bar
  • New to PC: Action Combat

There were no news nor announcements for any potential expansion for the game, but there is a possibility that it will be announced on the next Blizzcon by 2016.
