While Patch 1.3 is on the live servers, the actual Land of the Dead won't be available until next week. Instead, the Rise of the Tomb Kings event that has launched alongside the release of Patch 1.3 will serve to determine who are the first to enter the Land of the Dead when it goes live next week.
The full press release is available below:

The more ambitious adventurers will be further recognized for their contribution, with exclusive titles: “Sky Captain” for Order, and “Master of the Air” for Destruction. The dedicated – and lucky – players might also receive the Ravening Cloak, an ultra-rare item drop only available during the live event.
