Diablo IV - A Return To Darkness

I know that Qt3 seems to have jumped into Last Epoch in Early Access already, but that game is going to come out after the June release date of Diablo 4, right? For those of us who don’t play Early Access games, I mean.

That sucks.

They haven’t announced a firm date yet. I can’t imagine it will launch before June.

Yeah, I can’t imagine any scenario where LE launches prior to June. They just barely launched their MP beta and still have 3 of the 15 Mastery classes left to implement.

Amazon/archer is always the last class I play. Every Diablo since 1996. I just think the zoomed in view sucks for that class. Enemies rush in. Melee all the way, or Magic AoE.

Interestingly, I’m playing a super fun Amazon melee build with Charged Strike and lots of lightning effects, plus I can summon a Valkyrie! I’ve never really played Amazon before honestly, but this has been one of my favorite characters in Diablo 2 so far.

Really wish they were selling it for ~$25 instead of $40, I’d give it a try and go druid or necro.

It goes on sale regularly on each platform. For example Battle net on PC had it for $13 from Feb 14 to Feb 27 according to gg deals.

Yes. It will be late in the year.

Confused about which game you’re referring to, but if it’s Diablo IV, you probably know you can play for free this weekend and can try Necro and/or Druid (though from what I read here and elsewhere, you don’t get some of the cool Druid abilities since they don’t come into play until after you hit level 25).

Incidentally, if you were not involved in last weekend’s beta, the download for Diablo IV for this weekend is supposed to be available today, March 22, starting at 9 AM PDT.

He’s talking about Diablo 2 Resurrected, which Scott posted a screenshot of in the post right above his.

Someone’s talking about a different game than the game mentioned in the title of the thread? I am outraged!!

It helps to know John already pre-ordered Diablo IV after complaining that it’s too expensive.

Is there any reason to play this weekend as far as unlocks for the real game or just the same 3 things for getting up to level 20 from the closed beta?

Lasting rewards are the same, you just get to try out the two additional classes. I don’t plan to play more than necessary now because all progress will be lost.

Not specifically, but I for one and interested in checking out the Druid and Necromancer. I’m 99% sure I’m going to roll a Sorcerer at launch, I usually do in these kinds of games, but I’m going to put a bit more time into Rogue and Barbarian and also dabble in Druid and Necromancer, respecing and checking out early game skills with each. Also I’ll have my nice OLED Ultrawide by then, so I can see how Diablo 4 looks on that.

Thanks, I’m the same as you. This is all going to get wiped and I know I’ll end up getting this at launch anyway so no reason to play now. I can try out the new classes in June.

I am done until June as well. I don’t want to get invested in something that will get wiped.

I’m still interested for two reasons:

  1. The frame rate dipped horribly for me in the first beta a lot. I want to see if that has improved this time.
  2. I want to try it on Xbox this time to see if the horrible frame rate is a problem on there as well.

If it’s just a polishing issue, then I can get this on PC first in June, but if it’s my PC that’s causing the issues somehow, and it’s smooth on Xbox, then I’ll get it on Xbox first in June.
