Blizzard Entertainment, the renowned game developer, has officially announced that Diablo 4 will be available on Steam. This news has excited many fans, especially those who are avid Steam users. Being an ardent collector of games on Valve’s platform myself, I couldn’t be happier with this announcement.
As a first-time player in the Diablo series, I have thoroughly enjoyed the wickedly whimsical world of Sanctuary. But one aspect that always disappointed me was its exclusive availability on Blizzard’s own storefront. I take pride in my Steam library, where I display my achievements and have all my games in one cozy spot. Now, with Diablo 4 coming to Steam, I will finally be able to add this iconic RPG to my collection.
In a recent developer update discussing the upcoming Season of Blood launch, Blizzard confirms that Diablo 4 will be available on Steam on the same day as the Season 2 release, which is set for Tuesday, October 17. This means that fans no longer need to rely solely on Blizzard’s platform to experience the game; they can now enjoy it on their preferred gaming platform.
For those who already own the game on Blizzard’s platform, Blizzard clarifies that purchasing the game on Steam will be necessary if players want to play it on Valve’s platform. While some might prefer to keep all their games in one place, there are others who prefer having their games on Steam. If you fall into the latter category or you are interested in playing Diablo 4 on its release for the first time, you can add the game to your wishlist now on the Steam store.
