Diablo 4: How big is the open world?
Just how big is the world of Diablo 4?
Diablo 4 is aiming to be the largest game in the series yet and the size of the world is just a part of that. Blizzard has confirmed that the world will be larger than past Diablo games and that for the first time, the overworld will be entirely connected. That means that if players aren't inside a tavern, inn, dungeon or other self-contained area, the whole world is open to be explored.
What is the world of Diablo 4 like?
In Diablo 4, the world is divided into five distinct regions: Scosglen, Fractured Peaks, Dry Steppes, Hawezar and Kejhistan. Scosglen is a forest region where werewolves and Goatmen lurk, the Fractured Peaks are a snowy mountainous area, the Dry Steppes are home to brutal clans, Hawezar is a swamp where witches practice their craft, and Kejhistan is filled with wind-swept ruins. Each region is designed to feel different, with unique enemy types not found elsewhere. Parts of the world will even be open for PvP, further increasing the danger of travelling through.
What threats lurk in the world of Diablo 4?
Diablo 4 is a dark, Gothic world, one where monsters roam freely, packs of bestial Goatmen stalk unwary travelers, and evil lurks everywhere. Lilith, daughter of Hatred, Queen of Succubi, and one of the creators of Sanctuary, has returned. The reveal trailer for when Diablo 4 was announced further emphasized this tone, showing a world of evil and darkness.
As for what else the game entails, we'll find out starting early next year. Game Director Luis Barriga stated that new word on the game will hit in February 2020. We'll be sure to keep you updated when we find out more.
