Blizzard, a storm named Diablo Immortal
Currently, it’s a bit of a roller coaster for Blizzard. While the studio was thinking of restoring some color to its reputation with Diablo Immortalthe controversy soon caught up with American society. And for good reason, the economic model of free-to-play, recently released on mobiles and PCs, is strongly criticized, even though the game has made the best start of the franchise, according to Blizzard, with a record figure.
What if the studio’s redemption ultimately came from Diablo IV? We asked ourselves the question today, and it is true that with the recent communications around the game, Blizzard could well go all out with this title extremely awaited by fans of the license. On the occasion of the Summer Game Fest and the joint conference between Xbox and Bethesda, the title was revealed in more detail: after the open world and the release date, place to other very important information!

In this exchange, he notably gave an idea concerning the duration of the campaign, which he estimates at around 35 hours, but not only ! Throughout the journey, our character will gain experience and, again according to Shely, this will allow you to reach level 45. However, the limit does not stop there!
Rest assured, there will obviously be plenty to do after reaching the end of the game. First of all, reaching level 50 will unlock the famous Paragon pointsfunctionality already crossed in Diablo III and Diablo Immortal, which will allow you to become more and more powerful. In the facts, 4 points will be awarded to you for each level up at this stage, up to level 100 for a total of 200 points to allocate in the characteristics that sing to you. But it won’t be endless like in Diablo 3Sadly !
Diablo 4 therefore has the heavy task of keeping you busy for more than 55 levels, but according to Joe Shely, there will be plenty to do! Nightmarish dungeons will appear, a new bonus systembaptized ” Tree of Whispers “, will make available ” global goals and bonuses that will renew frequently “, And many more.
You have access to the “Tree of Whispers”, you have access to nightmare dungeons and other endgame activities that we are still working on (…) We really wanted you to have a wide variety of things to do. And of course, you have world levels that allow you to level up, to make sure that the difficulty of the world stays in step with the power of your character’s level. — Joe Shely, director of Diablo IV
