Diablo IV currently has a “Friends and Family” Alpha phase testing, and several screenshots have surfaced from it. These screenshots give us a glimpse at the game’s character customization, game creation, and difficulty selection.
Diablo 4 is an action RPG that will be an always-online game, and will not offer an offline mode. At this point, we 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.
