Diablo 4: an update on the economic model and post-launch content

First of all, remember that unlike Overwatch 2, whose goal is to migrate players from the first to a new economic model as easily as possible, Diablo 4 is not a free-to-play game but a game sold at the classic price that will then be provided for as many years as possible.

As Diablo 3 has already done, Diablo 4 will therefore be entitled to a system of seasons that will start as soon as the game is released and of which a dedicated team will aim to offer four a year. These seasons will come with new features, missions, enemies, legendary items and other live events, but we can also remember that it will be “I can’t pay to upgrade in Diablo 4“, In the same words of the team.

A promise that applies as much to the ornamental shop as to the season ticket system. The shop will not use any kind of technique loot and will preview each purchase. “To avoid unpleasant surprises, it is vital that players know exactly what awaits them once they have made the purchase.“, We can read. Optionally, the shop will allow you to get Ornaments for premium currency.

After the game launches, a large development team will focus exclusively on the seasons. Suffice it to say that an army of developers will be working on Diablo 4 for years to come.

If the store isn’t new, which didn’t exist at the time of Diablo 3, it’s the subscription system. Note that the latter will include free rewards (ornamental items, premium currency, increased experience gained) and paid rewards (ornamental items and premium currency for the shop).

During the transition, player characters can earn a variety of rewards for free, just by playing. At any time during the season, they can purchase the premium pass to unlock the ability to earn premium reward tiers containing cosmetic items and premium currency“, We can read.

It should be added that the Diablo 3 Season Journey concept will return and that completing its objectives (for free) will allow you to progress faster in the rewards of the Season Pass. All explanations are available in the quarterly report which does its best to draw a portrait away from the controversy of Diablo Immortal.
