These changes will not be the only ones with the new Diablo franchise title.
Blizzard is making the world of Diablo that we know, transforming it into an open-world game, and moving away from the previous methods of setting up their regions and dungeons. With tons of crafting, world events, PvP, side quests, camps, and outposts will offer players plenty of activities outside the featured linear story. Players will have a lot to look forward to in 2023 will the arrival of Blizzards Diablo IV.
