Diablo 4 Has Gone Gold Ahead Of June Launch
The streets of Hell are (officially) paved with gold.
Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Diablo IV--the latest installment in its demon-slaying RPG franchise--has officially gone gold, which means the game has reached a completed enough state for discs to begin printing, ahead of the game's June 6 launch on consoles and PC.
The official Diablo Twitter account announced the game's gold status today, with an image featuring the game's main antagonist Lilith accompanying the announcement. "Can you feel her presence now?" the tweet said, referring to the pictured villain.
Recent beta tests across all consoles and PC resulted in Blizzard's announcement of multiple changes that will be made to the game, including optimized dungeons and major changes to all classes. The most recent issue of Game Informer ran a cover story on the game, which revealed it will receive new story content "every three months."
The new Diablo is slated to be the largest game in the franchise's history, with over 120 dungeons, dozens of side quests, world bosses, and more available in the main story. New endgame content has also been added, which includes paragon boards, designated PvP zones, and new challenges called Nightmare Dungeons.
Diablo IV launches June 6 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
