During the Xbox + Bethesda Games Showcase, Blizzard announced that Diablo 4 will release in 2023 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. It will include cross-play and cross-progression on all platforms. Diablo 4 also supports local multiplayer on consoles.

The Gothic action-RPG series will feature its first open world and non-linear story in Diablo 4. Roaming the world of Sanctuary, players will reclaim enemy strongholds and turn them into friendly towns. Diablo 4 holds nearly 150 dungeons to delve into as they battle against the forces of Lilith.

Diablo 4 will also feature a proper character creator with each of its five classes: barbarian, rogue, druid, sorcerer, and the newly revealed necromancer.

Necromancers use dark magic, manipulating bone, blood, and darkness to raise armies of undead and powerful golems.

After reaching max level, players can work on unlocking their Paragon Board, taking on challenging Nightmare Dungeons. Or journey to PvP zones to battle other Nephalem.

Diablo 4 was first announced in 2019. Diablo 3 was released back in 2012, while spin-off mobile game Diablo Immortal released earlier this year. Diablo 4 will launch sometime next year. The series is rated M for Mature.
