Leakers found out that this expansion is set to be focussed around Mephisto, which may have been confirmed by Blizzard’s announcement trailer where we can hear Mephisto’s voice. Plus, the expansion is called Vessel of Hatred, which indicates a strong presence of Mephisto as he is the Lord of Hatred in the Diablo franchise.

Aside from Mephisto, a returning region from Diablo 2 known as Kurast, has also been revealed by the leakers. This is also likely to be present in the game as we can see a jungle area in the trailer, which looks very similar to Kurast.
