Diablo IV - Online Only

58 posts in this topic

I’ll sure sign it though I would be quite surprised Blizzard gives a damn about this... I hate these mandatory online features so whenever you have a connection issue, you can’t even kill time on your game 😠

Guess ppl should stop using burger king net, its strange every day r new diablo 4 news. Its strange for a "2021-2022" release date. Im sure it comes earlier, perhaps on ps 5 release or few months later after the ps 5.

Gimme a break! It's a live game, it won't change. You can play it solo but it'll stay always-online.

Good luck. Blizzard haven't exactly been making good decisions lately so maybe if there is enough backlash they'll do something about it. If I'm not mistaken, wasn't Diablo 3 online only on PC but offline on console? Is there a chance that is the case with Diablo 4?

 

Yup, and in fact the console version was full of cheaters! It'll be online on all platforms, 100% guaranteed.

I don't know about this petition. By the time the game is released,around 2028, change.org might be closed

No we don`t, but a game in single player should be capable to be played offline.

It is my opninion wheter you agree or not is up to you.

The best case would be to add at least the possibility of offline play.

 

 

Okay, I agree with you.

You guys are missing the point...

 

Playing offline coop will prevent local friends and couples from buying this game. Offline coop doesn't require 2 consoles, 2 games to be purchased, as well as access to PS+ on both consoles in order to play online. Too expensive !!

True to that...

With China implementing restrictions for time and money spent on online games by minors, we may actually see an offline mode...if Blizz can figure out how to monetize it.

I’m afraid that’s not the point, though I could ask whether you never, ever suffer any connection issue. The point is that when you invest 70€/$ in a game, you should be able to use it as you see fit.

I honestly doubt it is even a 2022 release I feel like they whipped the trailer up super quick for blizzcon after the disaster they had the year before.

The game director Luis Barriga has said, via Forbes, that Diablo 4 isn't coming out anytime soon, not even "Blizzard soon." So I think a petition while the game is this early in development is simply not needed.

Just so you know, he was making a joke reference to Diablo Immortal....not being literal!
 

For the reference, try googling ‘Diablo Immortal Don’t you guys have phones?’

online only was one of the major issues with diablo III on launch, and they later fixed this issue for the console versions. how moronic is blizzard to make the same mistake again?

I just don't see a point of making it online only, what if you don't have access to the internet when you want to play or you just have slow internet. Why would you force people to play online when the game can clearly support offline play, it's just stupid

Diablo is a series I once loved but I've given up any hope of anything great from it ever again, so I'm cool with never ever buying this game whenever it comes out. My backlog is large enough to last me at least a decade so I'm going to be too busy to buy yet another LiVe SeRvIcE game

The issue this faces is the fact that the servers for the game will inevitably shut in the future, then you'll be left with nothing to do on it after that happens. Although the servers for the game will probably last 5-10 years when it does come out, I still feel like an offline mode should be an option for games that have content that can be done completely solo. I'm guessing the reason they've made the game online only is because on Diablo III, people can mod gear that can make themselves invincible and kill things in 1 hit, I don't think they want that to become a big thing on Diablo IV. Either way, I didn't like Diablo III at all, the whole idea of grinding gear to then use that gear to grind even more gear is boring to me, so I don't see myself buying Diablo IV any time within the release period.

Blizzard games PC on never shut down though... shutting down D4 in its current state would mean erasing it from history, like a Darkspore or a generic MMO.
