Following a period of silence and the cancellation of BlizzCon, Blizzard released a huge Diablo 4 info dump, featuring the environments of the upcoming game.
Diablo 4 has been taking the slow and steady approach when it comes to development and Blizzard folks didn't release too much info at once, until March 29, 2022. Then again, after all that wait, we're sure many fans will be happy to dive into the juicy news about the zones and environments they can enjoy while chewing through hordes of enemies.
The devs showed a total of six environments through video clips and a few interiors with new screenshots. For example, you can check out the image of the tavern that is bound to produce some trading or a quest or two. On the flip side, the arid desert may not sound as inviting but we're sure it's devoid of any adventure and tales. There is also a brief look at a dungeon we will be exploring but the real treat comes in the series of videos that showcase more than a still image of an area.
The first among them was the somewhat gloomy Scosglen Coast.
Orbei Monastery was fairly similar although it did have a few rays of sunshine. Still gloomy though.
Speaking of gloom, here is Kyovashad Night.
Not to beat a dead horse but the next map looks like a dungeon so, yeah.
On that note, Wretched Caves also have a feel of a dungeon.
Flooded depths looked a bit more interactive than the rest of the maps.
Keep in mind that this is the world of Diablo we're talking about so all that gloom and doom is right at home and wasn't exactly unexpected. That said, our one-line descriptions hardly do the process of creating these maps justice so if you are looking for more insight there, the devs have also offered their thoughts about it.
