Every quarter, Blizzard brings us new news about Diablo IV. This time, the creators decided to focus on the world around us, which will be much darker than what we know from the previous parts.
We first heard about Diablo IV a few years ago. During this time, the creators regularly gave us more and more new information about the project. Some were good because we have new trailers, and even some game snippets. Unfortunately, there was also this bad information, because we found out that the premiere was delayed. In the meantime, Microsoft has decided to buy Activision Blizzard, so you can see a lot more has happened. After a long break, the studio has decided to share a handful of additional information about Diablo IV, this time focusing on the world around us.
Watch new material from Diablo IV
In Diablo IV we will have the opportunity to visit more than 150 dungeons. They must all deliver the style that Blizzard recognizes as one of the main pillars of the project – dark, dark and dark again.
“We are approaching the creation of Diablo IV’s environments with a darker and more grounded interpretation of the previous parts. The goal is believability, not realism… The atmosphere is almost tactile, and weather and lighting play a more important visual role in Diablo IV.” In addition, the developers had to change the approach to creating dungeons. With more than 150 of them, the team had to change the way graphics were created to be flexible enough so that individual elements could be used in multiple locations. However, this does not mean that pigs will not be different. says Brian Fletcher, Deputy Technical Director for Environments “All while providing a new experience every time.”
When will Diablo IV be released?
Unfortunately, this information is still shrouded in mystery. Initially, 2022 was talked about, but as I mentioned above, unfortunately, Blizzard will not keep that date. I’d rather aim for 2023, although we may have to wait a long time for official confirmation. The only thing we can do is keep our fingers crossed for Team Blizzard, because I don’t need to mention the potential of this team.
