Hell Rifts may appear as a layout for Nephalem Rifts.
These dungeons are very dangerous for Hardcore characters, because combat often starts immediately after you enter the red portal. In other words, demons will have a chance to attack the player before the level is even fully loaded.
In Adventure Mode, this zone has two levels.
- The Hell Rifts, including name, appearance, quests and purpose, are a reference to Hellrift questlines in Hellgate: London, an Action-RPG developed by former employees of Blizzard North.
- The Rift Oculus name is reminiscent to that of the Oculus Rift, a virtual-reality headset developed by Oculus VR.
