Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the upcoming Diablo IV will feature unprecedented levels of player customization, offering players the ability to personalize almost every aspect of their gaming experience. From the appearance of their character and gear to the Skills they wield and even the type of mount they ride, Diablo IV allows players to make Sanctuary their own and play the game their way.
One of the key elements of customization in Diablo IV is the Skill Tree, which provides players with a variety of playstyles for each class through Skills, Passive Skills, Enhancements, and Key Passives as their character levels up and hones their abilities. Players can spend up to 5 Skill Points on each Skill to increase its rank, providing an additional layer of personalization.
In addition to the Skill Tree, Diablo IV also features a range of customization options for character creation, including over 8 trillion appearance combinations, unique hairstyle selections, and the ability to dictate eye color, body markings, accessories, and more.
The game also allows players to unlock and customize their own mount after completing the Main Questline with one character. Mounts have an assortment of customization options available to them, including different types of mounts, armor, and trophies. Players can earn Mount Trophies such as the Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy reward that can be earned from the upcoming Server Slam event.
Diablo IV also features an extensive gear system, with Legendary Items possessing the ability to enhance or change Skills and lend other helpful bonuses to the character. Unique Items, which cannot be transferred from one item to another, can only be acquired in Nightmare and Torment World Tiers. The game also has a crafting system that allows players to reroll bonuses, increase the power of items, exchange Legendary bonuses, and add gem sockets to items.
Blizzard has released four spec tiers for the PC system requirements for Diablo IV, ensuring that players can choose the settings that suit their playing preferences and hardware. The game will attempt to run on hardware below minimum specifications, including HDDs, dual-core CPUs, and Integrated GPUs, although the game experience may be significantly diminished.
Finally, Blizzard has announced that it will be holding a Server Slam event from May 12-14 to test the durability of its servers on Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4. Players will be able to take up arms against the armies of the Burning Hells and help the developers test the game’s servers before its official launch on June 6.
