Diablo IV can be seen, with an open world full of promise.
Video game fans, without necessarily approving the method, are accustomed to waiting, again and again, for the release of this or that opus, whether it is a sequel to a cult franchise or a brand new Licence. The studios have taken it almost as a principle to announce their new releases long, very long in advance. And that can sometimes be very frustrating. Diablo IV is one of those games that are long overdue. But today, fans have a slightly clearer idea of its release date.
Diablo IV reveals itself
As Microsoft will “soon” be the new owner of Blizzard Activision, we expected an announcement about Diablo during the big Summer Game Fest. And if we knew that a direct sequel was coming since November 2019, we didn’t really have any other information to put in our mouths, except that the game had been postponed to an unknown date. Today we know at least that it will arrive sometime in 2023.
The developers promise a different style of Diablo, with open-world exploration, more character customization, and what looks like very different playstyles depending on ability.
With an open world full of promise
If players manage to clear certain areas of all monsters therein, those areas will become perfect for trading and anything unrelated to said monsters. Also expect to find specific areas for PvP duels as well as an adaptive difficulty system in which the most talented players will be marked in this open world.
For those who are not convinced by Diablo Immortal, this Diablo IV will be very, very expected. There hasn’t been a new Diablo game in 10 years. If you’ve waited all this time and are impatient to discover this new opus, know that pre-registration for the beta is open here.
