Blizzard has announced that Diablo IV will be released in 2023, having shared two new videos for the fourth installment of the dark fantasy RPG franchise during today’s Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase that provide new glimpses at its gameplay, as well as the introduction of a new class. Joining the previously revealed Barbarian, Druid, Rogue, and Sorceress classes is the Necromancer, the fifth and final class that will be available at launch to Diablo IV players who’d prefer to take down demons and other evils by summoning the dead. Blizzard has also detailed some of the game’s new features, including a character customizer “with a plethora of options” for changing aesthetics, Strongholds that can be captured to reveal new dungeons and other hidden experiences, and end-game challenges such as Nightmare Dungeons. Diablo IV features almost 150 detailed dungeons, Blizzard has confirmed.

As a Priest of Rathma, known by outsiders as a Necromancer—the word death evokes a sensation of power, potentially even excitement when it graces their ear. These legendary summoners bend blood, bone, and darkness to their will, and subjugate the ranks of the undead to carry out their bidding. Unknowing adversaries who pick a fight with this death-defying class will quickly learn they’ve made a grave mistake, for they are darkness in its wake.

  1. notice how the name of the event was Xbox & Bethesda; blizzard wasn’t named out loud

    Most likely due to the fact that the aquisition has not been finalised yet.

    Most likely that they didn't want everyone and their grandmother review bombing everything at the show because Blizzard was a headliner. Hate to say it but blizzard has fallen VERY far in the eyes of gamers. And they are missing the mark on their games.

    If they WANT to come back they need a golden game. Something that really hooks people and brings them back in... WITHOUT microtransactions. Sell the game... people will buy it and if it is great others will learn and join in.
