Diablo 4 Better Than D3? Beta Participants Approve, Despite Bugs

The first round of Diablo IV beta testing is slowly drawing to a close. Although the game's condition leaves much to be desired, players seem to be satisfied with Blizzard's latest creation.

As previously announced, beta testing of Diablo IV began on friday for those who decided to pre-purchase the game. Unsurprisingly - reports of problems immediately began to appear on the web, in the form of long queues, server instability, as well as technical errors in the game itself.

Despite the inconveniences (which, according to the developers, have been partially eliminated in a new update), players do not spare warm words for the next installment of the iconic series.


When browsing the forums where fans of the brand gather, it is not difficult to come across, among others, opinions that the very beginning of D4's campaign is much better than the whole story in Diablo III. Players have loved (let's not be afraid to use the word) the new installment to such an extent that the wait for the release of the full version of the game will become even more difficult for them.

So what, besides the engaging storyline, has captured the fans? Here are some sample comments:

"The game is wonderful, the open world is complete and a huge improvement over what we had in 'D3', the MMO elements are fine and didn't cause me any problems, I always have something to do at any given time. I didn't feel like I was wasting time doing one thing instead of another. So everything is fine!" reports chyme.

"It's much better than I expected, to be honest, I'm not 25 yet, but I really enjoy spending my time playing the main campaign and side missions. I play as a Barbarian, and the skill tree seems solid with plenty of options. Combat is really fluid, and what really captured me is the cross-platform play. As a result, using a PC, I was able to play with my brother, who was using a PS5," notes Soppressata88.

"This is what Diablo III should look like," declares travtrav53.

"I love the music that plays in the background while in the city (Kyovashad)," writes SirSantosII.

"Overall impressions are positive, better than Diablo III, but I've played too short a time to explore and evaluate it in depth," notes Katoshi.


As you can see for yourself, the positive comments are numerous (although we have quoted only a small part of them), but there are also several flies in this ointment.

Among the unfavorable opinions quite often one can come across objections to the camera being positioned too low and the inability to zoom it out, which goes hand in hand with an oversized interface that obscures the image. On the minus side, according to the players, there is the excessive repetitiveness of the locations, which becomes boring after a while, and poor animations.

"I couldn't wait to give it a try... and after the first day I left completely bored. I didn't even finish exploring all the repetitive dungeons. The user interface from such a huge studio as Blizzard is a joke," points out Reklatzzzz.

"The animations didn't captivate me either. MrLlama [streamer on Twitch - ed. note] even burst out laughing at the death animation of one of the bosses, and I couldn't blame him. It looked silly (he burst like a balloon). The user interface is very bad," criticizes templestate.

"Yes, that's right, too close [view - ed.] and the user interface is too big. I feel like I'm looking at the interface of a mobile game," comments Rayuken1.

In summary, players' first impressions of Diablo IV herald a really good production. If the developers from Blizzard analyze the feedback from the community and make the appropriate improvements, we can witness the release of one of the best action RPGs of recent years.

Finally, let us remind you that another round of beta testing of Diablo IV, this time open to all players, will take place on March 24-26.. In turn, the release of the full version of the game will take place on June 6, 2023. The title will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
