Online videos of Diablo 4 gameplay have surfaced. The 36-minute-long video provides more information about the game precisely one day before the beta early access period for fans who pre-ordered Diablo 4 opened.
Diablo 4’s development has not been simple. Key team members left throughout the game’s development, which led to significant delays. But in addition to the lengthy development process, there have already been other leaked footage, and some fans are questioning the caliber of the upcoming Diablo game.
The biggest issue surfaced after Diablo Immortal, an MMO adaptation of the game series was released. Players began to be concerned about whether Diablo 4 would use pay-to-win strategies after fans discussed their difficulties with Diablo Immortal and the need to invest significant sums of money in the game to stay competitive.
Asmongold, a devoted Diablo supporter, voiced these concerns about Diablo 4 in addition to criticizing the in-game advantages the Deluxe Edition will bring to those who buy it.
Some gameplay and a significant portion of the user interface are shown in the leaked video that first appeared on Reddit. The video is of poor quality, and it is clear from the areas that are shown that Diablo 4 is either partially or completely unfinished and that the leak originates from earlier in the game’s development.

Not to mention the “close beta final boss” marker for the boss battle. The interface of the game seems a little more straightforward than in earlier iterations, and the absence of the familiar gargoyles and angels lessens its gothic feel.
It can be assumed that the player character in the leaked video is a barbarian based on the armor set, combat style, and what is displayed in the skill tree.
It’s also important to point out that the video has loud music playing the entire time if anyone wants to watch it. So before clicking into it, it’s advised to reduce the volume to a minimum.

It’s debatable whether the release of this video, which comes a day before Diablo 4’s beta early access, will make things worse or better. Those who pre-ordered the game are probably very eager to see the gameplay for the first time.
At this point, it seems unlikely that the leaked video will harm Diablo 4 anymore. From the moment the beta early access opens, the game will speak for itself.
