The official website of Blizzard’s DIiablo IV states “With Diablo IV we are cracking open the campaign approach to broaden Sanctuary in a way we’ve never explored. With a fully open world, players will be able to adventure across five distinctively dangerous regions in any order, all seamlessly connected for uninterrupted journeys. Mount up and roam from zone to zone completing public events with others or explore populated town social hubs to party up and trade. Challenge a world boss or even other players for treasure and glory! The world along with its deadly inhabitants awaits. While it’s dangerous to go alone, you might prefer to solo your way through Sanctuary. Anyone can explore the campaign at their own pace, plumb randomized dungeons for rare loot, and find any item without joining a group. Keyed dungeons will offer a new endgame experience available to individual players as well as groups of up to four! You’ll want to stay tuned to find out more.”The game when launched will have five unique and different classes and players can choose between them. Three of them are The Barbarian, The Sorceress, and The Druid which have appeared in the series. New features of the series are incorporations of player vs player (PVP) interactions, and open world. Permanent character progression and personal customization will also be featured in the series. Talent Trees and Skill Points are introduced again in the series.
