What is known

Game Director Luis Barriga and Art Director JohnMuller talked to Ausgamers journalist about the plot of Diablo 4. According to the developers, Lilith will become the central character, but only in the first part of this “big story”. Art director John Muller noted that in the future, Diablo 4 will replenish with new and unknown characters, around which the plot of the add-ons will be built.

“Diablo IV is like the first chapter of a book. We want to tell a great story and hope that it will be told for a very long time. Considering this as the first chapter of the book and Lilith as a key character in this story, it is very pleasant to realize that there are all these other characters who may return in the future, or new, previously unprecedented characters, ”said the art director.

Muller added that in Diablo 4, developers plan to change the established formula:

"In the Reaper of Souls, if you go against Diablo,after you reach the maximum level, this is a battle that looks like a minor nuisance. Malthael was a real boss. So what if we do not return it right away? And instead, first find time to explore other characters. ”

The developers said that they plan to introduce a basic pumping system with a finite level, as well as an endless one. The first will be added to create a sense of completion for players, and the second - for users who want to dive deeper into the "endgame", performing more complex tasks.

So, Blizzard is planning an open world in which live players will meet. In addition, adventurers will be able to team up to clear the dungeons and hosts public events.
