In Diablo II the player enters The Burning Hells to slay Diablo. The zone is similar to that described in Greek mythology, with the paths being made of black stone surrounded by lava and filled with horrible monsters and forgotten sinful souls trapped in their fate. Living up to its name, it is a nightmare. You travel into Hell via the Pandemonium Fortress. Hell in Diablo II is the location of the Outer Steppes, Plains of Despair, City of the Damned, River of Flame, Hellforge and the Chaos Sanctuary.
