Updates on Diablo 4 games: in-app purchases, difficulty levels, and endinggame content... Everything you can expect after the beta

Diablo 4 is expected to be released on June 6, with huge fanfare from Blizzard's legacy that has transformed role-playing games. Since its release in 2019, the fourth numbered part has been the subject of regular communication by Blizzard." Something even more palpable between two weekends spent preparing for the open beta of the game.

Don't give up Diablo 4.
The end of the game's content is the basis for service games. For almost 30 years, Diablo's license has been there. This is the campaign you have to start over and over again with the first two games. This one has a Adventure mode as well as a system of flaws (superior or nephalem) allowing to satisfy the players who are always looking to improve their character but especially to alter their playing styles.
This new saga system is quickly identified. According to many players, it quickly reaches its limits. Each new season takes three months to complete, especially because it only contains looping loops.
Diablo III is a commercial success but it runs out of steam over time. These are the builds that are causing players to be enthralled, especially since the game has received the little attention from the studio.
Diablo 4 is a world-opening game with a multiplayer mode that frightens.
Before you may be able to complete the activities reserved for the highest level, it is logical to create Diablo 4's narrative in six acts. This is a must-do, especially since Blizzard has been particularly diligent in preparing this part of the game. Something remarkable is that the game's creators pushed the story to the back burner.
The fourth numbered part enacts the plot in the same way as the previous ones (a conflict between angels, demons, and humans). There is also a new element that must serve the game's context and activities: the open world. This aspect is also the source of two major worries for gamers.
The second reason is that these two main innovations are cannibalizing each other. Players believe that the linearity of the first three games contributes to the narrative's readability. And if they accept that storytelling isn't their greatest ability, they're happy to follow it for its twists. Conversely, the open world and the freedom it promises on paper can then engulf the main quest.
The third part is much more concerned with the open world and the massively multiplayer aspect. In 2012, when Diablo III was released, the public was partly enraged by the permanent need for internet connection, something that still does exist in other games. This is for example the case of world bosses, which are difficult to defeat but very rewarding.
The difficulty of separating two audiences in a formal manner
The degree of difficulty is still mentioned a few times by players when asked about their expectations and fears for Diablo 4. It does even tend to stir up debates between two types of players: those who played for the first two opuses before coming with Reaper of Souls, which greatly assisted the game.
A challenge that allows for some a genuine "successful feeling," but is feared by others who want "a hack'n'slash that is open in its mechanics and its progression". The latter mentions Path of Exile, a hack'n'slash released in 2013, who isn't accessible to hardcore gamers.
Blizzard will have the responsibility of presenting a challenge that is appropriate for a wide range of personalities, including players who are also interested in a hardcore mode (with permanent death) with world bosses.
Fear of a Diablo Immortal 2
Immortal battle for Diablo Pass...
Micro-transactions are obvious or even necessary in Diablo 3 since it was released in 2012, as well as the inclusion of an auction house, which some players praised for allowing you to change your character's fortune with real money. This is a kind of skeptical fence that is being brandished by Diablo 4 players.
... and his shop.
The developers were helpful on this topic. A battle pass was mentioned, but they did not want players to believe they may be stronger thanks to small in-app purchases. Like the endgame content, what will be possible to purchase via in-app purchases remains a major mystery today.
Diablo 4 is navigating in difficult waters in general. If the revamped staging and the mastered artistic direction have appeared to have enthralled players, the studio's construction sites are still numerous enough to attract the crowd with its enthusiasm. It also converges on the notion of more frequent, regular, and engaging gameplay. Probably where Blizzard will have the most trouble: releasing Diablo 4 on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series on June 6th.
