Diablo 4 Microtransactions Won’t Be Like Diablo Immortal, Blizzard Says

For those worried about what and how much diablo 4 a community lead from Blizzard Entertainment said Sunday it will have nothing to do with the rather…aggressive monetization behind it Diablo immortalwhich started two weeks ago.

Diablo 4Launching sometime in 2023, will be a “full-price game designed exclusively for the PC/console audience,” according to Blizzard’s Adam Fletcher wrote on Twitter. Additional monetization comes through “optional cosmetic items and eventually full extensions”.

In other words, something like Diablo 3which received a $40 extension in 2014 (reaper of souls), which was followed in 2017 by a $15 premium DLC pack that brought back the Necromancer class diablo 2. Diablo 3 have not paid for cosmetics.

Quiet, diablo 4 sounds far away from the business model of Diablo immortal, a game primarily developed for mobile devices, but also launched (in beta version) on Windows PCs on June 2nd. This game is free to play, although the ability to use real money to purchase character developments — particularly endgame developments — irks many fans as a pay-to-win game. Last week, YouTube’s Bellular News estimated that it would take 10 years or $110,000 for players to acquire enough Legendary Gems to fully max out their character and physique.

The cautious fans of the Diablo subreddit are already gearing up for a battle pass diablo 4, which Fletcher didn’t mention but which many say they don’t want. Battle Passes typically award cosmetics and other items as players progress through XP tiers – progressers can level up or skip a series of levels within it with a premium purchase of the pass.

And as for the premium cosmetics model Fletcher proposed on Sunday, others are suspicious, too. “The ‘It’s not P2W, it’s just P2LookGood’ concept should NOT be normalized in the genre where character customization and loot are the main parts of gameplay,” said one commenter.
