What You Need to Get Started Playing Diablo

Play Diablo with PlayStation

Diablo is a series of action role-playing video games for PC and now PlayStation too. The original game was released in 1997, but since then there have been three main instalments and side games. The most recent release is Diablo II: Resurrected. Despite being such an old franchise, the Diablo series remains incredibly popular. It may not have been around for as long as playing a game of dice, but just like you may ask how to play dice you might want a helping hand getting started with Diablo, so here’s a quick look at what you need to get started.

The Hardware

Diablo II: Resurrected offers one of the widest console releases that the franchise has ever seen. The remastered version of Diablo II is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Mac OS and Windows. Obviously, if you opt for the console version then all you need is the console. For Mac and Windows, the requirements are more complex.

Diablo III is the most popular instalment available on PC so let’s look at the requirements for that. For Windows, you need a minimum of Windows 7, but Windows 10 64 bit is recommended. Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon 64 X22 are the recommended graphics cards. You’ll need a minimum of 4GB of RAM, but ideally at least 6GB. You’ll also need 25GB available on your hard drive, a stable internet connection and a minimum 1024x768 display resolution.

Basic Game Knowledge

The first place to start is simply to decide which game you want to play. Diablo III is the most popular instalment but the most recent release is the remastered Diablo II. A lot of this will be guided by how you want to play, but Diablo II and Diablo III have mostly been released on the same consoles (the exception being that Diablo III isn’t available for PS5).

Each of the games will vary slightly, but the overarching premise is the same. They are all action role-playing games where you play as a hero whose task is to slay monsters and defeat bosses while you gain experience, learn new skills and increase your power.

Diablo III is set in the dark fantasy world called Sanctuary. The demons of Burning Hells have sent an invasion and the heroes and Prime Evils went to war. In Diablo III the war is over but the End of Days is near. It’s your job to take the place of the old heroes to protect Sanctuary.

You will be asked if you would like to be a normal character or a seasonal hero. If you’re a new player, you should choose a “normal character” to give you chance to play through the story first.

As you play through the game you’ll increase your skill and find new ways to fight. There are lots of articles about tactics to choose but save these for when you have a basic understanding of the gameplay. For now, just suit up and see what happens!
