With Diablo 4 set to release in June, players are eagerly anticipating the chance to explore the open world and hone their character-building skills. But just how long will it take to reach the coveted Level 100?
According to a recent tweet from Diablo 4 associate director Joseph Piepiora, players can expect to spend at least 150 hours grinding to reach the highest level.
Clearing Up Confusion About Time Needed to Reach Level Cap
Piepiora had previously mentioned different estimates of 80 and 150 hours in different interviews, leading to some confusion among fans. However, he has now clarified that 150 hours is the estimated time for the average player to reach the maximum level.
Diablo IV Xbox Series X Release Rumors
There have also been rumors about a special edition Diablo IV Xbox Series X console to coincide with the game’s launch. Twitter user billbil_kun, who is known for leaking information about PlayStation Plus, has claimed that Microsoft will release this edition alongside the game on June 6th, 2023.
What to Expect from Diablo 4
Diablo IV is the highly anticipated fourth main installment in the Diablo series, developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. While introducing new elements like an open environment and PvP interactions, the game will retain series staples like randomly generated dungeons and loot-focused character building.
Players can alter their character class skills through equipment and talent trees, allowing for unique combat abilities. Enemies are grouped into families, each with distinct themes, fighting techniques, and locations. The synergy of specialized skills among family members adds depth to combat. Playable characters’ effectiveness is determined by their attributes and boosts from equipped items.
Get Ready for the Grind
With 150 hours estimated to reach the maximum level, players should prepare for a significant time investment in Diablo 4. However, with its reputation for addictive gameplay and challenging difficulty, the grind is likely to be well worth it for fans of the series.
