Diablo 4 Quarterly Update: Sept 2020

Blizzard Entertainment published today the Diablo 4 Quarterly Update with some juicy details. Something to note is that the images are tagged as Pre-Alpha.

So we can assume the game is played only by the Diablo 4 team at this point. Not company-wide, yet. Still the UI looks pretty good this early.

Diablo 4 Quarterly Update: June 2020

Blizzard Entertainment posted today the Diablo 4 Quarterly Update. They have more or less completed a team playtest of the Dry Steppes zone internally, from home. The best highlight is the mention of a PvP subzone.

This is a very comprehensive update covering several aspects of the game:

  • Team Playtest
  • A word about Blockout
  • Storytelling
  • Open World
  • Multiplayer
  • Items and Progression

The press newsletter fleshes it out much better:

  • A new look at one of the five regions of Sanctuary: The Dry Steppes! 
  • Open World will play a big role in Diablo IV and Camps are no exception. The team shares a look at how these important locations that are overrun by enemies can be conquered by players. Once cleansed, camps become outposts with friendly NPCs and a waypoint location. 
  • A new peek at some in-game cinematics for Dry Steppes experience.
  • The team’s philosophy on Multiplayer in the Open World and how to ensure that the world of Sanctuary in Diablo IV always feels dangerous.

While there are no plans to announce Alpha or Beta testing, it is absolutely incredible to have this amount of transparency from the Diablo 4 team discussing pre-Alpha playtest and current development so early.

Better yet, wanting feedback as they move from milestone to milestone. This tops the Heroes of the Storm early development transparency and feedback harvesting of years ago. Me like that.
