New Diablo 4 Dev Video Details the Game’s Lore, Characters, and Story

diablo 4 dev video

A new Diablo 4 dev video just got released, but instead of the usual devlog highlighting features or content, this one’s a little different, focusing solely on the game’s lore. Diablo’s a franchise with a deep and dark story, and with the fourth installment set half a century after the previous game, there’s a lot to unpack with Lilith and her army.

You can watch the video here:

Here’s a quick list of everything that the dev video covered:

• The story of Diablo IV takes place 50 years after the events of Diablo III, presenting a new plane of Hell for both veteran wanderers and newcomers alike to slay demons in.
• Players begin their journey as a wanderer in the Fractured Peaks zone, before being pulled into the monumental events that are shaking and shaping the world of Sanctuary. Rich character customization allows players to create whatever fantasy they want to as they progress through the story.
• What remains of humanity is caught between this eternal battle between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, and the last of the secret order of scholars and mages known as the Horadrim aim to sway your mind against Lilith’s dark powers.
• Meet the characters who inhabit Sanctuary with the familiar Horadrim, Lorath, a new Horadrim and scholar, Donan, the young adventurer, Neyrelle, and Prava, another new character who leads the Cathedral of Light, a militaristic faction associated with following Inarius, who hopes to show you the commanding ways of the Light.
• The story unfolds during utterly tragic and apocalyptic events within Sanctuary, with the story of Lilith and Inarius being the darkest we have ever told in the series.

Blizzard just recently held its Diablo 4 Server Slam event, giving players the chance to try the game out one last time before it launches. The game is set to officially release this June 6 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
