“Going gold is a landmark milestone for the incredible Diablo IV team, who have all worked so hard crafting the next-generation installment of this iconic franchise. This is a concrete, meaningful step toward our June 6 launch,” said Diablo general manager Rod Fergusson in a press release. “Whether players are veterans of the franchise or jumping in for the first time, we can’t wait for everyone to experience the full game: taking part in the incredible storytelling, experimenting with character classes and builds, and exploring what the endgame and the dark world of Sanctuary has to offer.”
Here is a brief overview of the game, via Blizzard Entertainment:
In Diablo IV, players can join the fight to save the dark and gothic world of Sanctuary from the Blessed Mother Lilith, battling demonic hordes on monsters along the way.
- Play Your Way – Players have more options than ever before to create the character fantasy they want, choosing from five different character classes, a litany of cosmetics and skills, and whichever path they want to take through the world.
- Open World Gameplay – Complete with a full story campaign, 120+ dungeons, dozens of side quests, world bosses, and tons of land to explore.
- New Endgame Systems – Players can continue to grow and test their skills in the endgame through massive paragon boards, player-versus-player zones, Nightmare Dungeons and Helltides, and the Tree of Whispers.
