Ahead of the game's launch, Blizzard has announced the global release times for Diablo 4. The early access for Deluxe and Ultimate pre-orders will begin on Thursday, June 1 at 4 pm PT/7 pm ET in the US, while Europe will see it at 12 am CEST on June 2, and Asian countries at 8 am on the same day. The regular launch will commence on June 5 at 4 pm PT/7 pm ET in the US, June 6 at 12 am CEST in Europe, and 8 am in Asian regions.
In Diablo 4, players will have to choose from five classes - Druid, Rogue, Sorceress, Barbarian, or Necromancer - and fight demons as the demon Lilith and the angel Inarius engage in a war. The game includes an overworld where players will need to drive back the demons of Hell across various zones, such as Fractured Peaks, Scosglen, Hawezar, Dry Steppes, and Kehjistan. Additionally, there are 140 dungeons, side quests, World Bosses, Strongholds, and plenty of loot D4 items to be found.
The game's end-game system will challenge players to continue growing in power through challenges, with regular events like Helltide bringing a surge in demonic activity. It also features Nightmare Dungeons, an updated Paragon Board system, Whispers of the Dead that grant Legendary rewards, and Fields of Hatred for PvP.
Finally, Diablo 4 will feature cross-platform play and progression, as well as couch co-op on consoles upon release. It's always good to be prepared, even if it's a bit early.
