While this update isn’t comprehensive, it servers to create a more stable experience for Diablo 4 players ahead of launch. Considering the status of the famed franchise, it’s clear that the servers will have a huge inflow of players once the game sees its full launch, especially after Diablo Immortal and its unhinged microtransactions. Fans have been anxiously waiting for the mainline entry since its reveal at Blizzzcon in 2019.

Diablo 4 is currently sitting at a score of 87 based on 50 critic reviews on the aggregator site, Metacritic with many citing the game’s return to the roots and providing an experience that truly resonates with longtime Diablo fans and newcomers alike.

The next mainline installment in the famous RPG series has exceeded sales expectations even before the official release, as per Blizzard Entertainment’s recent financial reports. Blizzard also believes that the entry will raise the count of its monthly active users as the game’s servers begin to populate post-launch. 

Diablo 4 is set for launch on June 5, 2023, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
