Diablo IV Review - PC Mag

Diablo IV is a beautiful, massive new chapter in the classic hack-and-slash series that features a wildly addicting hunt for fresh gear.

Finally a reviewer includes MTs in the review. This an interesting CON: "Requires a Battle Pass investment to get the most out of it."

CorndogBurglar120d ago

It really doesn't though. The battle pass will likely add more to the game, just like every other game with extended content. But you can still get everything in the game right now, even without the battle pass that is coming. It's not like you are being held back from getting legendary items until the battle pass comes out or anything like tthat.

And the MT's in the store really are just cosmetic. They are expensive as all hell, for sure. But they don't give you any advantage in the game that others wouldn't have.

The deeper you get in the story and after the patch update you will see why Blizzard influences you to buy microtransactions and Battle Pass. A few of my friends said after they bought Battle Pass they started to get legendary items in no time 😂

HyperMoused120d ago

Havnt seen the need to buy anything, in fact id say you are silly to buy the couple bits of armour thar available, Most people like the idea of games like Diablo you start with nothing and earn your gear,if you buy it, why play really.

Exhausting game.

There is zero drive to do anything in the game.

Slappy McGee8d ago

Especially after you beat it. The seasons are just not fun and neither is grinding to level up since everything levels with you.

I went from liking this game to hating it. Diablo Immoral 2.0

Gardenia8d ago

That's what battle pass and seasons do to a game. They control how much you can play, how fast you should level and what you can win for free.

I am starting to believe Xbox is cursed at this point... everything they touched slowly become shit, not saying it is their responsibility as I know they don't have involvement on some of these games, just crazy how they are almost impossible to put out a decent games as long as the publishers/studios are owned by them, unlucky I guess.

bradfh8d ago

Activision, not Xbox, is responsible for disappointing games like Diablo, Overwatch 2, Call of Duty, and World of Warcraft, which often suffer from endless grinding and changes that make them less enjoyable.

Xbox does not own D4, so I am unsure how they can be at fault for this game...

Diablo 4 Korean Live Event Turns Into a Disaster With Empty Seats and Not a Lot of Interest

The recent State of Diablo event in South Korea had almost zero interest, indicating waning interest in the game among Korean players.

shinoff218320d ago

Good. Sounds like alot of bs with that game. I'd much rather just buy diablo 3.

PapaBop19d ago

That's because Blizzard are no longer Blizzard and just another developer under Kotick's greedy watchful eye. Gamers are no longer cherished fans but $$ cows to be milked.

UltimateRacer19d ago

Going to become even worse under MS and Phil.

anast19d ago

It's like having a live event for a reskin of Diablo Immortal...

Stanjara19d ago

Wait, don't you guys have Korea?

Apparently not.

But China... when they hammered that WOW statue down... be gone Satan!

Jayszen19d ago

I guess Koreans can spot when a game has been designed with a view to milking more money out of players. C & C went the same way and fans walked away from the franchise after 'Generals'.
