Diablo IV Inside the Game - World of Sanctuary

With Diablo IV slated for a June 6, 2023 release, and a couple of open beta sessions scheduled for March, Blizzard Entertainment is naturally looking to get us all excited for their upcoming action-RPG.

And this leads us to the new Inside the Game video series where Diablo IV's developers will be discussing various aspects of the game. To kick things off, we get an episode dedicated to the world of Sanctuary and in particular, its art direction, the monsters populating it, the gameplay innovations it brings to the table, and more.
