Blizzard prepares players for the release of Diablo IV with a new video.
Diablo IV’s release is still a few weeks away, but the studio is already offering players the opportunity to immerse themselves in the action role-playing game’s story. New video reveals what the story of Diablo IV is really about.
According to the story, Diablo IV takes place 50 years after the events of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. In the fourth volume, the angel Inarius and the demon Lilith, who created the world of Sanctuary, return to the midst of humanity, as expected, to wreak havoc and evil of all kinds on Earth.
The video also tells the story of the origin of Sanctuary, which is based on the eternal conflict between Hell and Heaven. As part of the confrontation, Inarius banishes Lilith into permanent darkness, bringing her back through a ritual seen at the beginning of the game.
In Diablo IV, the player himself is a wanderer whose backstory is not exactly revealed. According to the developers, players can create their own character’s story, which begins in the game when the character takes shelter from a blizzard prevalent in the Shattered Peaks region.
Diablo IV will be released on June 6.
