It’s a weekend that will go down in gaming history: After a gigantic Rockstar leak, it didn’t take long for another to reach the public. This time it’s Diablo 4 gameplay videos.
The leak about GTA 6 was just around the corner, and we’re already getting news about another one. Recently, a few friends and family members of Blizzard employees had been able to try out the closed alpha version of Diablo 4. Two videos suddenly appeared on Reddit showing new gameplay footage of game. It is now obvious that alpha testers have acted against their NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) and have to expect serious legal consequences from Blizzard because their user ID’s were traced via the Diablo 4 leak. Nevertheless, this coup is a really big event and gives us as players extensive new insights into the game, which, according to forecasts of insiders, will probably be released somewhen in 2023.
Update, November 7th
The previous leaked Diablo 4 gameplay videos have since been taken down from the web. In the meantime, however, new scenes are available again, which have surfaced on the French file-sharing platform gofile.io. There you can find four Diablo 4 gameplay video files, which are available for download with a total of 4.8 GiB in size. So far, Blizzard has always been quick to take action against releases, but here the videos have already been available since October 19. Whether this is due to the focus on anonymity of the site or strategic marketing remains to be speculated.
Diablo 4 Leak: Two videos show unofficial Ingame Footage
One video, which is 5 minutes long, shows the in-game store of Diablo 4. According to official information from the developer Blizzard, only precious items will be available for purchase. As in Diablo 3, skins will be available for weapons or armor, for example, which will be available to the player in-game as “Transmogs” via the wardrobe and can be equipped.
The second video, however, is 38 minutes long and contains never seen in-game footage of the game: The player controls a barbarian, completes some missions for NPCs, and various skills can be seen to stop the monster hordes. The material presented already makes an extremely solid impression. However, it is also clear that this is still an early alpha version. The NPCs shown so far still speak like robots. As of now, players can still access the two videos via a link on Reddit.
What game content can be seen in the two Diablo 4 gameplay videos?
- Interacting with NPCs
- Fights against Bosses
- Other Gameplay
- Skills are seen in action
- The Skill Tree is shown
- The Ingame Store can be seen
- Payment will be done with the in-game currency Palladium
- Skin sets can be purchased and used in-game
