The Diablo IV Alpha Has Started To Leak [VIDEO]

According to Activision Blizzard, the Diablo we’ve been waiting for several years is now leaking out of the “family and friends” testing phase.


You can find the video on Telegram, which Activision Blizzard has already taken down from Twitter. It’s Chinese and only half a minute long, but it still gives us a lot of insight into a game that will probably never be as big a financial success as Diablo Immortal, which was released for iOS, Android and then PC after the initial complaints.

The video is short, but we see some more critical elements. As well as customising your character, the difficulty level selection pops up. You get more face and body combinations on the character screen, but it is subject to change, as it isn’t the whole game yet, and who knows how Blizzard will change it. There are also tutorial features, so the game can give us more guidance if needed, and veterans can tap on the less guidance option to reduce it.

Anyone who has leaked the video will indeed be caught, as leaks like this are something the publishers can take action against. Since the Diablo IV alpha is watermarked, identification can be made in a matter of seconds, and the leaker could very well be kissing their entire account goodbye. (Speaking of, the Diablo IV beta has already popped up in the launcher, so the publisher is slowly working on something.)

Diablo IV (which has already attracted attention for its tattoo marketing; we’ve reported on it before) was initially announced for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2019, but unsurprisingly, Activision Blizzard has since added PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series to the target platforms. There’s no word on a Nintendo Switch version yet, but with Diablo III eventually showing up there, history might repeat itself. The game doesn’t have an exact release date yet, but we can expect it in 2023 with cross-play and cross-progression, meaning you can play with anyone and pick up wherever you left off.
