Blizzard has not only pushed back the date for Diablo 4 to 2023, but has also revealed more details about the potential RPG blockbuster. Players can expect over 140 dungeons, powerful world bosses, and dozens of side missions. In addition, pre-registration for the chance to participate in a beta test is now possible.
2023 Simultaneously for PC and Console
At the same time, Diablo 4 will be released next year on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X platforms. It also promises “cross-play and cross-platform progress” “on all platforms”. The press release submitted later today provides more information. Accordingly, “over 140 dungeons and dozens of side missions” await players in the newly designed Sanctuary game world, which is said to be bigger than ever. Set decades after the events of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls, the story brings out the likes of Lilith, the daughter of hate, as adversaries in the mortal world.
The barbarian, sorceress, huntress and druid are joined by the necromancer known from older parts, whom Blizzard has now introduced in more detail. The undead army should be able to be designed much more individually than before. In addition to the classic Skeleton Warriors, Skeleton Mages, and Golems, “fast attacking skirmishes, sword-and-shield defenders, or scythe-wielding reapers” should be added.
Over 140 dungeons
Blizzard had already heard of it in the run-up of over 150 dungeons spoken. But now the number of “more than 140 dungeons” is set in stone, so 150 will not be reached. “Dozens of side quests” is the second, much less precise scope. So-called “nightmare dungeons” should present new challenges to the advanced click warriors.
Bases, World Bosses and PvP Zones
According to Blizzard, there is “no set path in Diablo IV” and players always have to choose “whichever non-linear way they want to progress”. Players must influence the game world by conquering “corrupt bases”. Likewise, the “mighty world bosses”, which players can probably only defeat in a group, are reminiscent of an MMO. Players can also compete against each other in the designated PvP zones, but only upon explicit request.
Official website with beta registration
More details about the game are on the official site referring to. There is also a sign up button that gives players the chance to participate in an upcoming Diablo 4 beta test. However, the date for this closed beta is not yet known. A Battlenet account is required to register.
New gameplay video
A new Diablo 4 gameplay trailer was also revealed as part of the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase:
