Players will start their quest to slay the red-cloaked terrors in Kyovashad, Diablo 4's main city hub in the Fractured Peaks region, where the event takes place. The Midwinter Blight event starts on 12 December 2023, following a server maintenance period. 

Therefore, we expect the exact release time for Diablo 4's Midwinter Blight event to be 19:00 CEST in Europe and 09:00 PDT in North America, so mark your calendars and set those alarms. 

Get hyped with an official lore description of Midwinter Blight to get the blood flowing:

Trudge through the snow-laden, winter terror-land of Fractured Peaks, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a mysterious, red-cloaked terror!

Midwinter Blight will run for three (3) weeks, until 2 January 2024. We expect the event to end at the start of the maintenance period, so 18:00 CEST on European servers and 08:00 on US servers.
