For the Diablo faithful, the development of Diablo IV has been a journey closely followed, with the launch date set for June 6th 2023. There has been plenty of information from the studio as part of this in blog posts.

In an announcement yesterday, there are further good news items. The first is that you can now pre-purchase Diablo IV on your chosen platform: Battle.Net on PC, Xbox or Playstation 4 and 5.

The second is the three tiers for purchase at launch; Standard for AU$109.95, Deluxe for AU$139.95 and Ultimate for $154.95 editions, with each step up offering extras over the last. If you’re particularly keen to get into the sanctuary again, the Deluxe and Ultimate editions offer up to 4 days of early access.

When the game is finally released, you may not hear from me for a few weeks. I’m excited to check this out; it’s been a long time in the making.
