That’s right the wait is over for fans of the Diablo series, Diablo IV has ended its early access period and is now officially available for everybody and it’s doing quite well, garnering overly-positive critic scores on Metacritic, making it one of the year’s best reviewed games.
The monumental achievement was celebrated on Diablo IV’s official Twitter page, and it’s been reported that the game has been played for a grand total of 93 million hours already across PC and console platforms.
Blizzard hasn’t shared the number of copies that have been sold, but it’s bound to be a lot if it’s broken such an enormous record. There are also currently no user reviews on Metacritic, but for the most part, the game has been a smash hit amongst fans, especially compared to the previous title, Diablo III, which divided many fans for its, frankly, broken release.
That isn’t to say the game’s launch went smoothly, as PlayStation fans were left angry and disappointed when they were met with an error message upon booting the game up. The message implied users didn’t own the game they’d purchased, meaning many were left unable to play before a patch rolled out.
Another case saw the first player to reach level 100 lose all of their progress due to a server error that disconnected them from the game, showing the title still has a few bugs that need ironing out.
Apart from that though, the game has done well so far, with new players already devoting hours of their lives to seeing everything the game has to offer. One player put a solid 24 hours into the game on Hardcore mode during a stream, before promptly falling asleep, dying, and losing all of their hard-earned progress, that sucks.
