Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Diablo 4 will finally be heading to Steam on 17 October, just in time for season 2’s massive content drop. Both crossplay and cross-save will be supported as well, meaning you’ll be able to play with friends on other platforms while also being able to carry your progression over between consoles and PC through your Battle.net account.
Blizzard recently uploaded a developer update video going into great detail about the endgame changes and additions coming to the second season of Diablo 4. This includes improvements to Nightmare Dungeons, XP gain, inventory management and much more than you read about right here. When the game launched, PC players could only access the action-RPG through Battle.net but now it’s reaching a lot more players with its Steam version.
As with all Blizzard games, the first time players boot up Diablo 4 on Steam, they’ll need to connect it to their Battle.net account in order to enjoy the full features like crossplay and cross-progression.
Back in July, Blizzard stated that it will begin rolling out its library of games on Steam which started with Overwatch 2. Since Diablo 4 was still relatively fresh and new at the time, it wasn’t mentioned as an arrival on Steam until now. Hopefully it’s able to reach more PC players this way who exclusively game through Steam (we can’t blame them, since it’s difficult to keep up with so many game launchers).
In other news, Blizzard stated last month that Diablo 4 could receive MMO-like annual expansions with new story content each year. Thankfully, the wait between Diablo 4 and Diablo 5 won’t be as long as another decade, says the company, as it plans to develop and release the next entry in the series sooner than expected.
Diablo 4 is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Watch the full developer update video below:
