Blizzard Entertainment, creator and publisher of the hugely successful Diablo series, has been working on Diablo 4 for several years. Since the release of Diablo 3 in 2012, fans have been eagerly awaiting the latest installment. After several delays, the game is finally in production, with a release date set for 6 June 2023.
Although the development of Diablo 4 has been fraught with obstacles and controversy, it now appears that the game is finally ready for release. The game has undergone both internal and external testing by Blizzard, and the public beta has provided the latest device compatibility requirements.
One of the biggest changes is the division of the hardware requirements into four tiers, as opposed to the previous two tiers. This is probably because the game’s high-quality visuals require more powerful hardware. A GTX 970 or RX 470 graphics card is now required, as well as an AMD Ryzen 3 1300X or Core i5-4760K processor for the CPU.
Players will want more robust hardware, such as an RTX 2060 or RX 5700 XT graphics card if they want to take advantage of high-quality visuals and 4K Ultra. 32GB of RAM, a 6- to 8-core processor, an RTX 3080 or RX 6800 XT graphics card, and perhaps an RTX 40 series graphics card are all requirements for 4K.
The system requirements for the Diablo 4 public beta are high in terms of hard drive capacity and CPU and graphics card specifications. There is no mention of HDD hard drives, and players would need at least 90GB of SSD hard drive space. This is a significant increase on the 45GB required for the last Open Beta. However, it should be emphasized that there is less content available in the public beta.
