Everything you need to know about Diablo 4: classes, locations, monetization and MMO mechanics

At a recent presentation, Xbox revealed new details of Diablo 4 . The video showed a necromancer, customization and many gameplay features. After the release of Immortal, many are worried about the fate of the fourth part – will the upcoming Blizzard project turn out to be another failure? In this article, we have collected everything that is known about Diablo 4!

What is expected from Diablo 4?
In recent years, Blizzard rarely pleases fans – the only success of the studio was the chic Diablo 2: Resurrected . Otherwise, things are not going well: Warcraft 3 Reforged failed miserably , Overwatch 2 looks more like a modest DLC than a sequel, and Diablo Immortal shocked with aggressive monetization . Hope remained only on Diablo 4.

Since the announcement, a lot of gameplay videos and spectacular cinematics about the new Diablo have been released – however, the developers share information randomly, which is why some fans have a mess. After leaks about dailies, world bosses and PvP in the open world, many considered the fourth part of a full-fledged MMO – there is some truth in this, but not everything is so bad.

So what will Diablo 4 look like? Well, there are enough reasons for concern, but it is unlikely that anything will prevent the game from becoming a super hit: everything will definitely be in order with the gameplay foundation and visuals, and you will have to pay only for the project itself and DLC.

Plot
Lilith, the creator of Sanctuary, will be the cornerstone of Diablo 4’s story. She is also called the Queen of the Succubus, the Mother of Deception, and the Mistress of Betrayal. Because of the nicknames, you might think that we are talking about universal evil, but in fact, Lilith is a more curious character.

Lilith is the daughter of the great demon Mephisto, who fought with angels all his life. Light and darkness have always dreamed of destroying each other and fought for the Stone of the Universe, capable of creating worlds. The stone now and then passed from hand to hand, and new worlds turned into another battlefield.

Lilith was tired of the endless and senseless war, but continued to fight until she met the angel Inarius. The Queen of Succubus saw that the angel longed for peace and spared him – then Lilith entered into an alliance with yesterday’s enemy. Together they gathered like-minded people, stole the World Stone and created Sanctuary, where the events of all parts of Diablo unfold.

With the help of magic, Sanctuary was hidden from the forces of light and darkness: the new world became a refuge only for those who were tired of the endless war. Alas, peace did not last long – everything began to crumble when the Nephalem were born. These are the children of angels and demons, who noticeably surpassed their fathers and mothers in strength.

Alas, it was the Nephalem who caused the strife. Their magical power could attract angels or demons and turn Sanctuary into another battlefield. Inarius and other residents decided that the power of the children should be sealed, but this did not suit Lilith. In anger, she slaughtered her former allies and began to make plans for how her children would end the endless war.

Alas, the dreams did not come true: Inarius could not kill Lilith, but banished her into the void, and then sealed the power of the Nephalem. Once, the Succubus Queen managed to escape, but she was immediately returned back to prison.

It is known that the passage of the story campaign will take approximately 20 hours, and the narrative will become more cinematic. The developers promise a lot of spectacular videos, and all the dialogues will be nicely animated – during a conversation, the camera should move closer to the characters, allowing you to see facial expressions and gestures.

Gameplay and classes
The gameplay of Diablo 4 is true to tradition. The heroes have to run around the locations and use sword and magic to exterminate evil spirits. As before, tons of weapons, clothes, runes and other good will fall from the corpses to create a dream build. The only difference is that the amount of equipment will increase, the combat will become more sophisticated, and the effects will impress with unprecedented beauty.

Classes are standard, but there will be more skills, and each character will be able to be customized. Skin color, tattoos, scars, physique – there are many such parameters. The customization is so sophisticated that you can even customize the summoned creatures: decide for yourself which dead will follow the necromancer.
