Diablo IV brings local co-op for old-school players

The feeling of joining with family or friends to play games in a local multiplayer is something that modern players can’t have. Of course, online multiplayer expanded the way we can play with other people. Maybe, this is due to the nostalgia that only those who played in the 1990s and 2000s, but there is something magical in local co-op. Diablo was one of the most interesting games to play with a friend back in the days of PS1. It was brought back with Diablo 3, and now Diablo IV honors this legacy. The local co-op mode is available on the PS4 and PS5, allowing you to gather your friends again and play.

The new RPG allows two players to share their screen in a local co-op to explore the Sanctuary and face the challenges together. Unfortunately, the local multiplayer is limited when compared to Diablo III. The previous title allowed up to four players to share their screens. However, when we have just a two-player view, the UI is not the mess it was on Diablo III. So, if you want to enjoy the game alongside one friend or someone from your family, it will be possible with the latest iteration of this RPG series.

After these steps, you will be ready to venture together through the depths of the sanctuary and face the demoniac hordes. Some players will miss the possibility of playing with more than one friend. However, the new game works exactly as the first Diablo I.

Future Update Patch Will Increase the Difficult

In the debut of Diablo IV, Blizzard brought more details about the post-launch content. A new update will reach players on June 6 and will bring adjustments to the game’s balance, making the game more challenging on higher difficulties.

The update will also bring fixes for certain inconsistencies in the abilities of the Mage and Rogue. According to the developers, the Flame Shield will enter a complete cooldown state once it is attached as equipment. Meanwhile, the Interior Vision skill will need four seconds to be fully recharged.

However, there are still some missing points in the details. We expect the developers to publish a full changelog once the update arrives the next Tuesday.

Diablo is currently available in an early-access state. The game’s full-fledged release happens on June 6 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
