'Diablo 3' fans will be treated to some very big news with the start of the new year.

Per reports, Blizzard has confirmed that the highly anticipated PvP (Player vs. Player) duels will be heading over to the popular 'Diablo 3' with a brand new patch for the game - patch 1.0.7. Moreover, the company has also detailed the new PvP duels.

Patch 1.0.7 will introduce dueling, allowing players to test their mettle against fellow Nephalem. The duels can be prompted by talking to the NPC Nek the Brawler in New Tristram. Doing so will teleport the player to a new custom built PvP arena called the Scorched Chapel. The Scorched Chapel has four distinct arenas: church, graveyard, a lake and a river.

What's more, the new PvP duels currently supports up to four players in a Free-For-All format, which means players can battle their friends either one-on-one, three-player FFA, or a full four-player FFA.

Blizzard's Wyatt Cheng discussed the new changes and the reason behind the new changes in a blog post on the company's official BattleNet.

"The game doesn't keep score and there are no objectives. We wanted dueling to be as simple and straightforward as possible, so we created a minimalist system - we know that even without rewards and objectives, some players just want to beat each other up," Cheng wrote.

"Some matchups may be one-sided, and we don't expect that battles will be necessarily balanced. But that's okay, because dueling in Diablo III is more about kicking ass and taking names in a no-holds-barred sort of way, and this design certainly allows you to accomplish that."

Cheng's post also detailed some other changes that players will see in 1.0.7, including class balances for the Wizard and Monk, new crafting recipes, new gems, monster power changes, and other fundamentals related to the PvP duels.

More information on this matter state that if a player dies in the dueling world, he will be resurrected in the dueling zone, and death here is not permanent in the zone, even for Hardcore characters.

Moreover, players will not take any durability damage while in the dueling zone, and the dueling is finished, players can take a portal out or use their Town Portal to return to town.
