One of the many highlights during the Xbox Bethesda Showcase was Diablo 4 spotlight - confirming the Necromancer class for the game and also new details about the gameplay and world.

As promising as it looks, there have admittedly been some concerns raised about this fourth entry taking certain ideas from the recently released mobile (and PC) title, Diablo Immortal.

If you are concerned about monetisation aspects, Blizzard's global community lead for Diablo, Adam Fletcher, has now clarified what exactly to expect in a response to a fan on social media.

In brief, it'll be a full price game for PC and console audiences, with "optional" paid cosmetics and expansions:

"D4 is coming out as a full price game built strictly for PC/console audiences. The game is huge & there will be tons of content after launch for all players. Paid content is built around optional cosmetic items & eventually full expansions. We will be sharing more info soon!"

Diablo 4 will launch on multiple platforms including Xbox Series X|S in 2023. You can also pre-register for future betas.
