Is Diablo 4 open-world?

Explore Sanctuary.

The Diablo series is known for its hellish entities, dark fantasy world, and fast-paced action. Diablo IV aims to not only deliver on these familiar features but enhance and expand them to create a must-play experience for fans. With lofty goals and improvements, you may be wondering if Diablo IV is an open-world game.

Does Diablo IV have an open world?

The answer is yes—Diablo IV features an open world to explore. Diablo IV takes place in the familiar world of Sanctuary, but this time it has been created with an open-world approach. Players can explore vast regions and discover secrets, quests, world bosses, and more. Numerous points of interest exist across the various zones of Diablo IV's world to discover.

The sprawling open world of Diablo IV showcases the stunning visuals in the series' latest entry. Fans will explore different zones, each with unique terrain, landscapes, enemies, and even gear sets. This allows each zone to stand out and makes it clear to the player where they are in the world of Sanctuary.

However, many players will find that the most intense action takes place in dungeons. While the open world is full of activities, dungeons will be where players find the most difficult challenges. These share the beauty of Diablo IV's open world, as well as the attention to detail, making both a joy to explore. Sadly, it may be these visuals that hold Diablo IV back from the Nintendo Switch, though Blizzard may port the title over eventually.
