Diablo 4 Dev After Beta: 'You Haven't Seen Even Half of Legendary Powers'

The Diablo IV beta has whetted the appetites of fans of the hellish hack'n'slash, but Blizzard has yet to reveal all of its cards (or even half of its legendary powers).

Probably mo one though that the Diablo IV beta showed most of the attractions prepared by the developers. After all, players could only check out the first act, and there were only 25 of the 100 levels to be achieved in the full version.

Nevertheless, it may come as a surprise to learn that during the beta tests we didn't even see half of the legendary powers from Diablo IV. Such news was given by Joseph Piepiora, the game's executive director, during a discussion on Twitter.

Initially, the developer wrote that players probably don't realize how many "bizarre, exciting and absolutely balanced" powers will appear in the full version of the game compared to the open beta. Only in response to a question from an Internet user did he clarify that during testing, "the Codex of Power contained less than half of all existing legendary powers" from the fourth Diablo.

Piepiora's statement sparked keen interest among the fans, although the developer did not see fit to address other issues raised by Twitter users.

Premiere of Diablo IV will take place on June 6, and the game will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
