Diablo 4 Beta: Disappointed Fan’s Review

Diablo 4 is the fourth part of the famous Diablo franchise. Blizzard Entertainment is the owner of this franchise. They recently announced Diablo 4 Beta version.

Diablo 4 Beta Overview

This game has been in development for years and recently underwent a beta testing phase, giving players an exclusive look into its early stages before its official release.

Diablo 4 beta testing is available on various platforms, such as Xbox and PlayStation, giving players a taste of what’s to come. Unfortunately, not everyone was happy with what they saw when they first glanced at it on screen.

Diablo 4 Release Date

The release date of Diablo 4 is not yet known and we can’t say for sure. Initially, there were rumors of a 2020 release, however, due to development delays the game will now likely hit in an unknown future period.

Blizzard has confirmed that Diablo 4 will be released on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.

Diablo 4 Beta Gameplay Review

As an avid fan of the series, I felt let down by my experience playing Diablo 4. While the visuals are stunning, the gameplay falls short; especially, the skill tree feels like a step backward from Diablo 3, offering limited options and customization.

Furthermore, the level scaling system is kinda edgy, giving players a false sense of strength as they progress through levels.

Diablo 4 Beta

The NPCs speak for way too long, giving the game a dull and boring vibe. Making it feel more like an RPG with no action. Furthermore, the color palette is bland, making it difficult to differentiate what is happening on-screen from what else around you.

The Druid class is disappointingly low in talent options for Werewolf and Werebear forms. It appears that Blizzard has taken all the less desirable elements from Diablo 3 and put them into this new class – leaving players with little choice but to accept what little is available.

Graphics

Diablo 4 stands out in regards to its visuals. The game boasts excellent character models and environments that feel immersive and captivating.

However, the color palette could use improvement as it is too bland and makes it difficult to differentiate between different elements on the screen.

Sound Design

Diablo 4’s sound design is somewhat uneventful. While weapons and spells have some impressive sound effects, NPC voice acting can be laborious with characters speaking for too long and detracting from the overall gameplay experience.

Diablo 4 Beta Review – Disappointment

After years of enjoying the Diablo series, I was let down by my experience in the Diablo 4 beta.

Blizzard seems to have forgotten what made their series great and is instead focusing on creating an eye-catching game with little substance. The skill tree takes a step backward, while level scaling is completely broken. It appears they have neglected what made their series great in order to focus solely on aesthetics.

Additionally, NPCs speak too long, giving the game a feel like an RPG with no action. While the graphics are stunning, the color palette needs refinement.

Finally, I hope Blizzard takes the feedback from the beta seriously and makes significant changes before Diablo 4’s release. Unfortunately, I cannot endorse Diablo 4 in its current state.
