New Diablo 4 Video Is All About the Game's World; Yes, You Can Pet the Dog

Diablo 4

Today Blizzard Entertainment released an extensive video about its upcoming RPG Diablo 4. 

We get to hear about the world of the game, its five different areas with no loading screen, plenty of monsters to fight (and you should probably be careful if you're arachnophobic), and the art style that permeates the world of Sanctuary. 

    And yes, if you're wondering, we also learn that you can pet the dog. Games are now forbidden to prevent you from petting the dog. It's an actual rule and you can't prove me wrong.

    You can check out the video below.

    Here are a few points made on the video, straight from the press release sent but Blizzard to accompany the video.

    • The art style in Diablo IV is shadowed and macabre, in many ways reminiscent of the grisly atmosphere of Diablo II. There are five unique zones, each with their own grim environments and themed dungeons to match. One of the artistic goals was to make every scene look and feel like a painting, so every color and texture was meticulously made to accomplish the desired grim design.
    • Every monster inside Diablo IV’s Sanctuary has been carefully worked into the darkest, most horrific versions of themselves. Players will fight their way through all sorts of creatures new and old, as well as interact with other typical beasts one might encounter naturally in each zone.
    • There’s so much to do inside Sanctuary—from fighting hordes of enemies and protecting safe haven towns, to fulfilling side-quests and conquering dungeons. Players can walk seamlessly between the zones, exploring to their heart’s content everything the open world has to offer.

    Diablo 4 will fully release for PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 on June 6, 2023. 

    Yet, players will be able to explore part of the game earlier with an open beta launching on March 24 and ending on March 26. Those who have pre-ordered will get early access, from March 17 to March 19.
