In a unique upcoming collaboration between Diablo 4 and KFC, the details about the included cosmetic items have been disclosed.
Even though Diablo 4 has yet to officially declare the crossover, players are excited about the potential to acquire these transmog items once the campaign commences.
From Rumors to Reality
Earlier, a leak had hinted at another promotional event involving Diablo 4 and KFC. Assuming the leak holds true, players will be privy to five distinctive in-game rewards during the collaboration period, speculated to last from May 29 to July 2.
Recently, Reddit user FlamePuppet has given us a sneak peek into the possible crossover items. Based on their post, the rewards for the promotional event will be cosmetic weapon skins — five in total. These items are humorously named with KFC-inspired puns, but they hold a serious and impressive aesthetic.
With designs that align with the grim ambiance of Sanctuary, every Diablo 4 class could smoothly pair these weapons with any other outfits available in the game’s expansive transmog system.
KFC x Diablo 4: What’s on the Menu?
The five cosmetic weapons introduced in the Diablo 4 KFC campaign include:
- The Vessel of Eleven: This Diablo 4 Druid-exclusive offhand totem, is named in homage to the 11 herbs and spices from KFC’s Original Recipe.
- The Thrumming Axle: A staff bearing resemblance to KFC’s chicken rotisseries.
- The Dread Pheasant Slayer: A bow, symbolically referencing a bird closely related to the chicken.
- The Hand of Gallus: A polearm, titled after the scientific classification of chickens.
- The Foul Reaper: A two-handed scythe, playing on the word “fowl,” looking much like a chicken tender skewered on a fork.
Official Confirmation Awaited
While Blizzard has not officially confirmed this event, there’s a substantial amount of evidence supporting its probability.
The source of the initial leak was the same individual who exposed the first Diablo 4 KFC promotion for obtaining closed beta participation codes. Moreover, the weapons featured in the latest leak display models are not yet spotted in the game.
Although specifics on the event might vary before its kick-off, official confirmation can be anticipated within the next week or so.
How to Earn the Rewards
In case the details of this rumored collaboration remain unchanged, players can win one of these rewards simply by scanning a QR code on one of the special Diablo 4 sandwich wraps used by KFC during the promotion period.
The remaining four rewards can be secured by ordering sandwiches through the KFC mobile app or website.
Players will have to be patient to discover the precise conditions of this promotion when — and if — it is officially announced.
Wow, that made me hungry. In case you missed it, Diablo Immortal had their anniversary days ago and this was their annual surprise for fans.
