Diablo IV's early access is less than a full day away, and Blizzard Entertainment released a new lore video to help you get caught up with the story.

This time around, following the video about the primeval battle war between Hell and Heaven, the trailer about the Creation of Sanctuary, and the one that recapped the events of Diablo and Diablo 2, we're inevitably getting a fourth providing a handy guide about what happened in Diablo 3

Besides being masterfully narrated by Ralph Ineson (who will also appear as Cid in the English version of Final Fantasy XVI), it's also a great way to either learn about the backstory behind Diablo IV before playing it, or get a refresher if you're a veteran of the series. 

Diablo IV is coming for PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 on June 6, 2023. 

Recently, Blizzard also shared more details on Diablo 4's endgame. You can take a look at what awaits at high levels in our dedicated article and read our interview with Associate Game Director Joseph Piepiora and Lead Game Producer Kayleigh Calder

On the topic of customization and balance, you can check out our interview with Lead Class Designer Adam Jackson and Lead Game Producer, Story and Narrative Melissa Corning, while we heard about the open world and dungeon design from Associate Game Director Zaven Haroutunian and Senior Dungeon Designer Dini McMurry.

Since the game is about to launch, it got not one, but three launch trailers focusing on the story, the gameplay, and live-action.

Of course, you should read our full review of the game, in which our Austin Suther mentioned that Diablo IV "delivers exciting and accessible ARPG gameplay, a stunning world and engaging narrative to experience, and so many activities to keep you hooked for hours on end."
