The long wait is over. After several years of speculations and rumors, Blizzard has finally confirmed Diablo 4 and even unleashed a stunning cinematic trailer at BlizzCon 2019.
The trailer is titled By Three They Come and it features four men fighting demons to make their way into a mysterious temple. The fourth one discovers how to open the door and escape the monsters. Unfortunately, their troubles have only begun as they start to realize what it truly means when "blood is the key."
It's a jaw-dropping trailer that one would expect from Diablo 4 with awesome graphics and a compelling storyline. It concludes with the return of the immortal Lilith, who is expected to be the main antagonist in the game. Looks like Lilith is coming to save us all from the long wait for a new title.
The announcement is perhaps the most welcome news at BlizzCon 2019 considering that people have been hoping for a fourth Diablo game for several years. Although fans initially thought that Diablo 4 would be announced last year, Blizzard actually confirmed Diablo Immortal instead, which is a mobile game.
The official description for Diablo 4 reads as follows:
"Diablo IV takes place many years after the events of Diablo III, after millions have been slaughtered by the actions of the High Heavens and Burning Hells alike. In the vacuum of power, a legendary name resurfaces."
The Diablo 4 official release date has not yet been announced. However, it is expected to be released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
