Now that the long-awaited release of Diablo 4 is finally here, here’s everything you need to know about the dungeon-crawling sequel.

Blizzard’s Diablo 4 is one of the most anticipated games of 2023, and many players can’t wait to see what the new sequel will bring. 

You can read our review of the game here, which goes through all the important gameplay and storyline details, including all the new additions and changes.

The game is out very soon, and early access kicks off even sooner, but here’s everything else you need to know about the ultimate dungeon crawler.

What is the release date for Diablo 4? 

Diablo 4 has been available for pre-order across all platforms for some time now, with its official release date slated for Tuesday, June 6. 

However, if you choose to purchase the game’s pricey Digital Deluxe or Ultimate editions you will get early access and be able to dive in from Friday, June 2, in the UK. 

In both cases, the game will unlock just as the clock strikes midnight, so you’ll need to be up late (or get up early) if you want to join the action right away. 

Diablo 4 is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Battle.net (but not Steam). 

How much does Diablo 4 cost? 

The standard edition of Diablo 4 sets you back £69.99 on both last and next gen consoles, which is clearly not cheap. As usual, PC players get a £10 price break, though, and can snag it for £59.99. 

Unfortunately, if you’re into handheld gaming, Blizzard hasn’t announced any solid plans to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch yet. 

Does Diablo 4 have a deluxe edition? 

For those willing to indulge in their Diablo 4 passion, there are multiple special editions available, all carrying a range of benefits. 

The Digital Deluxe Edition of the game comes with a price tag of £89.99 on consoles and £79.99 on PC, commanding a £10 premium over the standard edition.  

On top of the early access perk, this edition grants you access to an array of mounts and mount armours, along with unlocking the premium version of the first battle pass. 

If you’re willing to go all-in, the Ultimate Edition of the game comes with an even heftier price tag, setting you back £100. 

In addition to all the previously mentioned bonuses, this edition also grants you 20 tier skips for the premium battle pass and exclusive access to the Wings Of The Creator emote. 

If you pre-order any of the game’s editions, you will also get the Light Bearer mount and the Caparison Of Faith mount armour. 

There is also a limited Creator’s Box available for Diablo 4, packed with a plethora of physical goodies, although it does not include a copy of the game itself. 

It comes with an electric red candle, a premium mouse pad, a cloth map of Sanctuary, the pin of the Horadrim, two art prints, and a collector’s edition art book. 

Is Diablo 4 cross-play and cross-platform? 

Crossplay support will be available for Diablo 4 across PC, Xbox, and PlayStation platforms, as confirmed by Microsoft during an Xbox and Bethesda showcase that took place last year. 

At the time, it was also revealed that Diablo 4’s open world will feature shared world elements such as world bosses, along with the inclusion of couch co-op and dedicated player vs. player zones. 

Moreover, the game will not be region-locked, enabling players from different parts of the world to join together and enjoy the experience. 

Does Diablo 4 have co-op? 

Co-op play is available but there are certain requirements and conditions, one of them being that the prologue must be completed solo before the feature becomes available.  

The quests are centred around the party leader, who receives most of the rewards, although others still receive some – this isn’t Borderlands after all. 

However, a positive aspect is that enemies scale to each player’s level, allowing both low-level and high-level characters to have a fair chance against enemies and bosses.
