Diablo 4 Release Date: Diablo 4 or Diablo IV, developed by Blizzard Entertainment, is an upcoming online dungeon crawler action RPG (role playing game) and it is the fourth installment in the popular Diablo series.
Here’s everything from gameplay to release date to plot, you need to know.
Diablo 4 Release Date
The game was officially announced at BlizzCon 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 1, 2019.
As of now, Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind this, has not given any release date but based on speculations, it may release some time during 2021.
However, it may take even longer than that as there are no official statement from the company. Earlier, Diablo 3 was announced in 2008, but did not get released until 2012, so that’s about four years of waiting.
When asked about Diablo 4’s launch, game director Luis Barriga stated, “a game of this scope takes time”, adding that, “the game won’t be coming out anytime soon- not even Blizzard soon.”
Diablo 4 Storyline – Updates
Diablo IV picks up after the events of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls and is set in the Diablo series world of Sanctuary. The plot of the upcoming version will focus on daughter of Mephisto, Lilith and she’ll be the main villain, not the Diablo.
At this point, the gates of heaven have been closed after the Angel of Death Malthael destroyed a lot of Sanctuary.
Because of Heaven ignoring the events within Sanctuary, the canonical mother of humanity, Lilith is able to set herself free from her prison.
Diablo 4 Gameplay?
With a cinematic trailer that was sinister and dark, Blizzard also offered fans a sneak peek of the gameplay. Among the classes, the return of the Druid and the Barbarian is confirmed and there’s also a new open-world setting.
It’s open world which will be filled with other players too, doing their own missions depending on which part of the game you’re currently in.
Blizzard also has great plans for customization where you’d be able to customize your skill slots in Diablo 4. There’s mounts and a lot of thought is being put into the minions you’ll attack to win loot. The game will be always online and can’t be played offline.
