Games from Blizzard used to have their own launcher. However, back in June it was announced that the studio's titles were going to be available on Steam with the first being Overwatch 2. A new game is now available on the platform and it's none other than Diablo IV. That's right! You now get to be part of the fight for Sanctuary.
Diablo IV is the fourth main installment of the highly acclaimed Diablo franchise. It was officially released back in June and available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC through Battle.net.
The game being available on Steam isn't the only thing to be happy about. That's because there are different editions for you to choose from. The Standard Edition for example not only has the base game but also adds the Inarius Wings & Inarius Murloc Pet in Diablo III and the Amalgam of Rage Mount in World of Warcraft. The Digital Deluxe Edition meanwhile has what's in the Standard Edition but also includes the Temptation Mount and the Hellborn Carapace Mount Armor. It also gives access to the Premium Seasonal Battle Pass.
Finally, there is the Ultimate Edition which comes with everything offered in the Digital Deluxe Edition along with the Wings of the Creator Emote. However, the Battle Pass comes with 20 Tier Skips and cosmetic.
Diablo IV takes place in Sanctuary and is set 50 years after Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. This time the main antagonist is Lilith, the daughter of Mephisto. With the forces of both angels and demos now depleted, it appears that the time is ripe for Lilith to finally establish her power in Sanctuary.
Choose your Class
To fight Lilith, players can choose from five different classes. There's the Barbarian which has the abilities to switch between weapons even while in combat. The Sorcerer meanwhile is an elemental mage-type characters which can wield different types of magic. The Druid on the other hand not only has access to earthen and storm magics but and shapeshift between human and werewolf, as well as werebear, forms.
Another class is the Rogue which makes an appearance since it was introduced in the very first game of the series. This class can alternate between bladed melee or ranged combat using a bow. Finally, there is the Necromancer which makes use of dark magic for its attacks and summoning.
Now in the game, while players do have to choose a class, the good news is that the appearance can be customized. This includes the character portrait and even skin color. Skill trees are also present which allow for ability customization.
