Following a leak earlier this week, Blizzard Entertainment has announced Diablo IV will launch for the PlayStation 5Xbox Series X|SPlayStation 4Xbox One, and PC via Battle.net on June 6, 2023.

View the official release date trailer below:

Read details on the game below:

The demon Lilith and the angel Inarius united to create the world of Sanctuary in their desire to escape the Eternal Conflict between Heaven and Hell. But now, decades after the events of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, they are bitter enemies who have resorted to war against each other with their respective followers. The lands of Sanctuary have become plagued with ceaseless demons, and only the most steadfast of heroes will be able to hold in the face of darkness. Players will enter the world with their choice of five classes—the shapeshifting Druids, agile Rogues, elemental Sorceresses, brutal Barbarians, and cunning Necromancers. As players grow in power, they can build their gameplay experience in directions that appeal to them, experimenting with skill trees to showcase complimenting spells and abilities.

Debuting in the Diablo universe is an expansive overworld. Players will drive back the demons of Hell across the diverse zones of Sanctuar—the snow-frosted forests of Fractured Peaks, the windswept highlands of Scosglen, the festering swamps of Hawezar, the barren wastelands of the Dry Steppes, and the deserts of Kehjistan, home to the central city of Caldeum. The non-linear experience consists of a captivatingly epic story, over 140 dungeons, side-quests, and a plethora of loot. Mighty World Bosses will emerge, taunting players to defeat them in groups for a chance at their spoils, and Strongholds stand in wait for heroic adventurers to claim once again for the citizens of Sanctuary.

Also advancing the world-class ARPG experience is a robust end-game system, where players will continue to grow in power as they take on a medley of challenges. There’s the grueling Helltide, a regularly occurring event that brings a surge in demonic activity to Sanctuary, new ferocious and particularly challenging Nightmare Dungeons, an updated Paragon Board system to continue customizing heroes to new heights of power, Whispers of the Dead which grant Legendary rewards for selected world bounties, and Fields of Hatred offer designated grounds for building PvP renown.

Battle Pass in a full priced game non-MP game? Modern Blizzard is weird. What was wrong with the current season system from D3? Jut modernise it.

It is a MP game though. It's a constant open world in-line with Destiny or other MMO's where you'll constantly see other players. Plus, 4-player co-op and PVP areas of the map.

However, I detest a FTP business model in a full-priced game. I would say Blizzard should've just made it FTP but then I remembered Immortal lol. The seasonal model in D3 was great! Gave a lot of incentive to grind out a new playthrough. Just build on top of it.

Is having MP the same as being a MP game? D3 has it but I have not once played MP in it, other than a few challenge rifts. But I guess that is my choice.

I fear for Blizzard and how they are out to make money, what was once considered top end for developers is now turning into one of the devs with the worst and predatory monetisation in the entire industry.

That’s how I’ve felt about Blizzard for nearly a decade :( they were my favorite developers as a kid. They could never do any wrong! But once they merged with Activision, things changed really quickly. I remember in 2010 where they forced real ID’s in forums to try to combat trolling. Like, who the crap thought that was a good idea?! Then you had the Auction House at the launch of D3. If you didn’t get error 37.

I remember thinking the old Blizzard never would’ve done stuff like that. And it’s only gotten substantially worse.

Remember 22 years ago when we also received a Diablo and a Baldur's Gate inside the same few months?
Here's hoping we will be just as happy this time.

I feel like there was no hype for this.

I feel there would have been if it were more gameplay, 6 months out and the trailer is another CGI story one.

Diablo immortal was fun, but after a while there was nothing one could do since all drops have daily caps, even if I wanted to play there is nothing worth doing. Hopefully Diablo 4 will not have the same type of restrictions so that I can play it. Mild hopes.
