Diablo 4 Story
Diablo 4 would be set right after the Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls. Here, the gates of heaven have been closed right after Malthael, the Angel of Death, destroyed much of Sanctuary. It is through Heaven’s ignorance of the events transpiring in Sanctuary that Lilith, the daughter of Mephisto and Canonical mother of humanity, is freed from her prison.
An interview that took place with AusGamers Diablo 4’s Game Director Luis Barriga and Art Director John Mueller have been given an insight into the big ambitions the team has for Diablo 4 and its expansions. With Lilith Acting more like the main villain, rather than Diablo, Mueller has suggested that there would eventually be more to tell than this, with more characters and stories that could be told in expansions:
“Diablo IV is like the first chapter of a book. We want to tell a big story and we want to tell it, hopefully, for a very long time. Treating this like the first chapter of a book and Lilith as a key character in this story, it feels great knowing that there are still all these other characters that could come back in the future. Or, new characters that we haven’t seen before.”
They also went on to speak on just how big Sanctuary would be:
They stated that “There’s going to be five contiguous regions in the world and you can actually go from the North, the Northern most point of Scosglen, which is the area seen in the demo, all the way down through the Dry Steppes and into the deserts of Kejhistan. And you’ll never see a loading screen. It’s completely seamless. That’s the level of detail we’ve added into creating the world.”
