Leaked footage and screenshots from Diablo 4‘s alpha has appeared online.
The video show off character customization, game creation and the difficulty selection screen.
As the alpha is watermarked, it’s likely that the person posting the content will be easily identified, and their access to the alpha revoked.
The character screen shows off the range of face and body combinations that players will be able to select, however, it’s unclear if this is the full creation suite.
Tutorial options are also offered, which allows the player to select “more guidance” or “less guidance”. There doesn’t seem to be an option to turn off tutorials completely.
It was recently claimed that the Diablo 4 beta had been added to the Battle.net launcher in preparation for its release, which hasn’t been dated.
As part of an ongoing promotional campaign, selected tattoo shops are giving out free Diablo tattoos, with fans who get one being informed that they’ll receive early access to an upcoming beta as well as a digital copy of the game.
In June, Diablo franchise general manager Rod Fergusson said Blizzard was “committed to delivering an incredible breadth of content after launch, for years to come, anchored around optional cosmetic items and full story-driven expansions“.
