The “Family & Friends” closed beta testing for Diablo 4 is currently under way and 40 minutes of gameplay footage have been leaked from it. Moreover, Blizzard announced that it will soon launch an “End Game” Closed Beta. Not only that, but Blizzard confirmed that the first Open Beta testing will begin in early 2023.
Diablo IV will be an always-online game, and will not offer an offline mode. We also don’t know whether Blizzard will allow modders to enable an unofficial offline mode or not.
The game will also have cosmetic micro-transactions. Additionally, Blizzard is looking into enabling cross-play support between all platforms.
Blizzard plans to release this new Diablo game in 2023.
