Hearthstone is celebrating the Open Beta of Diablo Immortal by bringing Diablo to Hearthstone Battlegrounds. Diablo can be played by anyone, regardless of whether they have access to the extra features. You can play Diablo until June 7, so be sure to keep playing Battlegrounds games until you get a chance to play as Diablo.
How to get Diablo in Hearthstone Battlegrounds
Diablo is offered at random to players in every lobby. There is a chance you will be chosen, but if you are not, someone in your lobby will likely get him. It is always possible to lose quickly and try a new lobby until you eventually get him, but that will hurt your record.
What does the Diablo hero come with in Hearthstone Battlegrounds?
Diablo does not have a real hero power, but rather a way for other players to earn rewards. Using Diablo is just like playing as any other hero. The player decides who to attack and so on. However, facing Diablo is the most fun.
Every four turns, the seven players who are not Diablo face a boss version of Diablo. The regular players will receive a treasure if they can kill the special minion that the Diablo boss comes with. As a result of failing to beat the minion, the Diablo player earns two treasures.

All treasures are just different forms of these cards:
- Black Soulstone - After your last minion dies, summon a random demon
- Claws of Terror - Give a friendly minion +2 / +2 until the next turn
- Hellfire Hooves - Give your minions +1 attack until the next turn
- Magma Horns - Give a friendly minion Windfury for the next combat turn only
- Sigil of Hell - Deal 1 damage to three random enemy minions
These treasures increase every four turns to add Magic, Rare, and then Unique to the titles and enhance their powers and durations.
