Giant Lilith Statue To Immortalise First 1,000 ‘Diablo IV’ Players To Hit Level 100 On Hardcore Mode

High risk, high reward — that’s how Blizzard Entertainment is enticing the biggest Diablo IV enthusiasts to embark on a death-seeking journey. The first 1,000 people to hit level 100 on the game’s hardcore mode will have their usernames added to a giant statue of Lilith, as long as there’s proof of the feat.

“Think you can cheat death? Reach level 100 on hardcore mode and tweet #Diablo4Hardcore with proof to have your username immortalized on a statue of Lilith,” tweeted the official Diablo IV game account.

The infamous mode comes with the highest stakes of all, and is certainly not for the faint-hearted. A single death will permanently delete a character, but if you’re able to blitz through any of the monstrous bosses, then you’re more than deserving of the glorious reward. No leaderboard? No problem.

Of course, there are some rules to abide by. Apart from having to submit either photo or video proof to Blizzard, challengers will also need the Tempered Champion in-game title, which is awarded automatically once players reach level 100 in Diablo IV‘s hardcore mode. “Individuals who have inappropriate or offensive BattleTags” will also have their claims forfeited, with more details to be found in the Terms and Conditions.

Diablo IV Hardcore Mode

The contest kicks off on 1 June when Early Access launches, and ends when the first 1,000 names are gathered, or on 1 September if it doesn’t meet the player count. Regardless of your hardcore or casual player status, Diablo IV packs the promise of a fun, time-sinking return to Hell, as seen from the open beta.
