Diablo 4 is an action RPG where you use your skills, weapons, and magic to survive the harsh world of Sanctuary. Demons and Bosses will stop at nothing till you drop dead. You can explore the various cities and dungeons looking for treasure and loot. Along the way, you fight bosses and complete the game’s main story. All of these activities are hard and take skill to play, most fights and boss battles will take you more than a few tries. Once you die in the game, you respawn at a recent save point and begin where you left off.
