Blizzard have released a preview of Diablo IV. This phase of the game occurs after the destruction of the Black Soulstone, the defeat of the Prime Evil, and the fall of Malthael, Angel of Death. Countless lives have been lost and the people of Sanctuary find themselves struggling through the darkest of ages. Years have passed and, as some semblance of regular life starts rebuilding, a threat as old as the land itself begins to manifest.
Diablo IV is the latest in the saga of the genre-defining ARPG Diablohub fans players have fallen for. Hellish new features, brutal challenges, and an unavoidable return to darkness lie at the heart of this game. Get a preview of the terror that is in store:
Diablo IV takes place many years after the events of Diablo III; after millions have been slaughtered by the actions of the High Heavens and Burning Hells alike. In the power vacuum left behind, a legendary name resurfaces;Lilith, the daughter of Mephisto, the whispered progenitor of humanity. Her hold on Sanctuary cuts deep into the hearts of men and women alike, cultivating the worst in its citizens and leaving the world a dark and hopeless place.
With Diablo IV, Blizzard are opening up the campaign approach to broaden Sanctuary in a way that's not been tried before. With a fully open world, players will be able to adventure across five distinctively dangerous regions in any order, all seamlessly connected for uninterrupted journeys.
Mount up and roam from zone to zone completing public events with others or explore populated town social hubs to party up and trade. Challenge a world boss or even other players for treasure and glory! The world, along with its deadly inhabitants, awaits.
While it’s probably suicidal to go alone, you might prefer to try going through Sanctuary solo. Players can explore the campaign at their own pace, plumb randomized dungeons for rare loot, and find any item without joining a group. Keyed dungeons will offer a new endgame experience available to individual players as well as groups of up to four!
Players will be able to choose between five different, unique classes on launch. These three will be revealed by Blizzard at BlizzCon 2019:
Crush enemies and wade through combat with reckless abandon.
Freeze, scorch, or shock your foes with immeasurable arcane power.
With the Druid, you can shift between primal forms while commanding the fury of nature itself.
