In November 2022, the developers Diablo 4 gave interviews to the press and bloggers. This week blogger Force Gaming posted a video in which he told the details of communication with the authors of the ARPG. In the video, he talked about several mechanics, dungeons and PvP.
PvP battles will be available on the Fields of Hate. Each player will know where they are, so as not to accidentally enter them. On the Fields of Hate, you can earn a special currency. It can be “cleansed” through the Altars of Mephisto. It differs from the unrefined one in that it is forever attached to the character. There will be only two Hate Fields on the release, located in different parts of the map. Everyone will have big locations. According to the authors, players will not be able to farm opponents in the same place, such as an aisle.
The game will have Nightmare Dungeons. Keys (nightmare symbol) for them are obtained from different places after completing the story campaign. According to the participants of the closed beta testing, Nightmare Dungeons are a mixture of Greater Rifts from Diablo 3 and cards from Path of Exile. Their level will gradually increase, and the level of monsters may at some point become higher than the level of the player. Also in such dungeons there will be random negative and positive effects that affect the character and the quality of the reward.
“Infernal Onslaught” – a system in the spirit of the Realms of Terror from Daiblo 2: Resurrected. This mechanic will affect a random part of the world for one hour. It will increase the number of monsters and cause weather effects or cataclysms, such as meteorite impacts. You can meet the “Infernal Onslaught” at the third level of the world or higher. During it, players will encounter elite enemies in locations. When they are killed, the unique currency “Ash” can drop out, which allows you to open chests in locations with “Hellish Onslaught”. If the character with the ash dies, it will remain in its place until the player picks it up.
The Whispers of the Dead mechanic will be automatically activated after completing the campaign. By fulfilling its conditions, the character will receive experience, gold or gloomy gifts. After accumulating 10 gifts, you can turn them in at the Whispering Tree and get a chest with experience and loot. The player will be able to choose one of three random types of items in the chest.
Diablo 4 is set to release on June 2nd. The game will be available on PC, Xbox One, Xbos Series X|S, PS5 and PS4.
