The new open beta event for Diablo IV will take place in March. Now Blizzard beats the advertising drum again and impresses the fan base with a new video showcasing more from the different map zones of Sanctuary.
Diablo 4 is scheduled for release on June 6, 2023 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4/PS5, and PC, and the hype in the gaming community is growing relentlessly. The developers reward their fans with more reveals and info as the game approaches completion.
The world Sanctuary of Diablo 4 is presented in more detail
In the new video, Blizzard introduces the very diverse map of Diablo 4 and highlights the different areas.
Diablo 4’s world Sanctuary consists of a total of five regions. The Dry Steppes, Scosglen, Hawezar, Kehjistan, and Fractured Peaks. Real-world areas also inspired these zones. The Dry Steppes is a hilly, arid area, while Scosglen is based on Scottish landscapes. Hawezar includes marshy and Kehjistan sandy broad areas with dunes. The Carpathian Mountains inspired the zone Fractured Peaks.
The transitions between these Diablo 4 areas look even more remarkable. Walking from the peaks to Hawezar, you can see how the snow gradually turns into water that forms rivers in the swamps of the other zone.
Blizzard promises that in the large map of Sanctuary, you’ll discover something new at every turn, whether quests, enemies, resources, safe camps, or dungeons. The latter is designed to merge tightly with the respective areas of the world. So, for example, you’ll encounter dungeons full of sand in Kehjistan and flooded dungeons in Hawezar. But the best way to get a comprehensive impression is to watch the following video:
For all those interested in Diablo 4, there is a unique opportunity to try out the game as an open beta from March 24 to 26. Pre-orderers will get much earlier access to the beta test from March 17 to 19.
You can pre-order all editions for PC, PS4/PS5, and Xbox One/X|S directly via Blizzard. Alternatively, if you like a potential discount and want to support us at the same time, you can also get the game via Kinguin (affiliate link).
Blizzard is going to announce more Diablo 4 news
The fan base has good reason to stay tuned because Blizzard has already announced a subsequent date for further revelations on Twitter. The focus will also be on the armor system and the fortresses. So, don’t miss the next Developer Update Livestream on February 28 at 11:00 a.m. PST.
