Potential Diablo IV Leak Ahead of BlizzCon

Recommended Posts

IC1QRHT7669O1565398166483.jpg

Redditor PracticalBrush12, a reliable source of leaks with game releases like Persona 5, Ghost Reckon: Breakpoint, and Pokémon, has shared more information about Diablo IV.

BlizzCon is almost here and the upcoming Diablo title is supposed to be revealed at the event tomorrow, based on recent leaks.

First, we've had an ad leaked from the German GameStar magazine, which mentions Diablo IV. Next, we looked at a page with Lilith from The Art of Diablo book which will be out just after BlizzCon. We've even had an ex-Blizzard employee confirm it was his unreleased concept art of Lilith which received a paintover by someone else at the company. Today, we've talked about what to expect from the Diablo announcement at BlizzCon and round up, here are some juicy details on Diablo IV by PracticalBrush12, originally posted here.

Note that anything posted here hasn't been confirmed by Blizzard and we need to wait for tomorrow's opening ceremony to learn more about Diablo IV.

  • Diablo IV will look dark, gritty, and gross with toned down locations infrequently laid with corpses, wastelands, greyish deserts, cult caves surrounded by flesh, rotten crypts, plagued cities, and more. Blood actually looks like blood and not splashed jam.
  • Zones seem to be "more open". 
  • Characters will be able to use mounts.
  • There will be contextual interaction with environment, such as climbing a wall Lost Ark style.
  • Three classes are planned at launch:
    • Mages: Use fire, ice, and lightning.
    • Barbarians: Use swords, clubs, axes, kicks.
    • Druids: Use lightning, and transforming into beasts (bear, werewolf).
  • PvP is possible at launch.
  • We'll see a 4-player coop mode.
  • Characters are sitting at a campfire on the character selection screen.
  • Some skills seem to be taken straight out of Diablo 2, like Sorceress' Charged Bolt.
  • Click here to learn more about who the new "Diablo" is (Spoilers).

Ergh, I'm doubting this, since it mentions only 3 classes at release. Seems like an unusually low number for a Diablo game. Unless they're gonna push to have it out earlier by doing this, then releases more classes down the line? I dunno, still seems a little wrong.

This is very generic, I mean everyone could even made up those classes, there is always going to be some mage/sorcerer/wizard, barbarian and some shapeshifter and/or summoner. Perhaps these are the only ones they are able to show, unless this info is incomplete or wrong. D3 first reveal showed only Witch Doctor and Barbarian.

he literally took all stories/leaks from last few years and made it up like some sort of "the major leak" story. i highly doubt this as a reliable leak source or whatever this was meant to be.

The "only ones they can show" is pretty much the only way I saw this as possible too. Even then, I really have no expectations of them showing much of anything even if they DO announce D4.

Diablo 1 had 3 classes at release that is 1/3 of all Diablos!

Not to mention... them releasing only 3 at launch will allow them to monetize more classes later... can totally see this happening (//.-)

      A few days ago, Diablo 4 Beta appeared in the Battle.net Catalog. However, Rod Fergusson dispelled all rumors about the Beta in just one tweet claiming it was just an internal only test.
      We've got some sad news for everyone who expected an early Diablo 4 Beta. Senior Vice President of the Diablo franchise commented on Twitter that the Diablo 4 Beta showing up on Battle.net was intended only for internal testing.

      In an interesting turn of events, it seems those participating in the Hell's Ink tour, where you can get free Diablo tattoos at select locations, will actually be receiving beta access to Diablo 4! 
      Now, unfortunately the invite does not mention any sort of timeframe for the beta, but the tattooed will also receive a free copy of the game! 

      In case you are really desparate for an eventual beta key or are just looking for a great Diablo-themed tattoo, you can find out more about the event and future locations here, as it lasts another 2 months and is heading to Chicago, New York, Miami, and Europe next! 

      In terms of any  Diablo 4-related dates, the only official information we have is that the game is releasing in 2023.

      Diablo 4 is slated for release in 2023. Will the game be added to the Game Pass after the Microsoft Activision deal is complete?
      Windows Central editor Jez Corden tweeted that the "Microsoft will reportedly add Diablo 4 to the Game Pass after the deal closes". Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard is expected to close by June 2023.
      Placeholder for tweet 1536056968531550209 When Microsoft acquired Bethesda, the games produced by the studio were added to the Game Pass in just a few days following the acquisition. It would definitely be great for Microsoft to have Diablo 4 on the Game Pass, don't you think?
