It’s been a long time coming, Diablo 4 is finally available on PC and consoles, meaning players all over the world can finally play the game.
Specifically, the game went live today, June 6, at 7 AM PH time (June 5 at 7PM EDT / 4PM PDT). Though even before the game’s official launch, some players were able to play the game early. This is because players with Digital Deluxe Edition and Ultimate Edition pre-orders got Early Access to the game.
But now, even those who haven’t pre-ordered the aforementioned versions can finally enjoy Diablo 4.
Diablo 4 is the first mainline entry in the series in a decade, and while the hype for it was massive, it seems that Blizzard delivered as the game got great review. On Metacritic, the game has an 87 score for PC, making it the fifth highest-rated game of the year on PC so far.
While the game should feel familiar for long-time players, for those who need a refresher story-wise, the game’s premise is described as:
The demon Lilith and the angel Inarius united to create the world of Sanctuary in their desire to escape the Eternal Conflict between Heaven and Hell. But now, decades after the events of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, they are bitter enemies who have resorted to war against each other with their respective followers. The lands of Sanctuary have become plagued with ceaseless demons, and only the most steadfast of heroes will be able to hold in the face of darkness. Players will enter the world with their choice of five classes—the shapeshifting Druids, agile Rogues, elemental Sorceresses, brutal Barbarians, and cunning Necromancers.
Diablo 4 is out now on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. The game features cross-play and cross-progression on all platforms, as well as couch co-op on consoles at launch.
