The Diablo 4 beta is now available on PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S consoles, and if you're wondering if the current-gen versions are a worthwhile upgrade from the previous-gen versions, read on.
Diablo 4 is available across the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, with only one graphics mode. In terms of visual settings, previous-gen versions display lower resolution textures and shadows than current-gen versions.
The PS4 version plays at a native 1080p, while the PS4 Pro plays at 1180p. On the other hand, both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X versions play at a native 4K (2160p).
All previous-gen versions aim for a frame rate of 30 frames per second, while the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S are all designed to display graphics at an optimal speed. This is likely due to asset loading in the background.
The PS5 version of Diablo 4 loaded in less than six seconds as expected, while the PS4 version took over 50 seconds.
Diablo 4's current-gen versions include a few notable improvements over their previous-gen versions, both in terms of visual settings and performance.
Blizzard Entertainment has developed and released Diablo IV, the fourth main installment in the Diablo series.
