Diablo 4 trailers
Diablo 4 will be supporting controllers on PC. According to Blizzard, the goal is to provide players “the facility to switch between the two options easily”.
Story and setting
Diablo 4 will be placed after Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls. The gates of heaven have been closed after Malthael, the Angel of Death, destroyed much of Sanctuary.
It’s through Heaven’s ignorance of the events transpiring in Sanctuary that Lilith, the daughter of Mephisto and canonical mother of humanity, is set loose from her prison.
All we know right now is that it’s all open, with five unique regions and both a day/night cycle and ever-changing weather. Missions are non-linear and according to the game’s director, you’re open to taking them however, you’d like.
Other players will arrive in your game for shared events, indicating you will have to always be online to play. You can’t turn off this feature but you can choose not to group up with others.
