It’s time to return to the terrifying world of Diablo.
Blizzard Entertainment has released a new live-action trailer for Diablo IV ahead of its June 6th debut, directed by Nomadland Oscar winner Chloé Zhao.
Co-directed by Kiku Ohe, the trailer for “Saviors Wanted” gives viewers a first look at what’s to come in the fourth installment of the role-playing game series. Zhao’s trailer captures the ominous, cinematic essence of Diablo IV, which is full of conflict, fear, and outright destruction.
“Saviors Wanted” depicts the dark world of Sanctuary, a land overrun by ferocious monsters and battles waged by the High Skies and Burning Hells. “With a compelling story that combines emotion and humanity in the game’s characters, the promotional film takes viewers on a journey of destruction at the hands of Blessed Mother Lilith, who is determined to rule the Sanctuary once again.”
Throughout the trailer, characters living inside the Sanctuary make bone-chilling pleas directly to camera, begging the audience for help and aching for help from Lilith’s wrath.
“Working with Blizzard, we had a wonderful opportunity to bring the dark, thrilling and imaginative world of Diablo IV to life,” Zhao said. “Diablo fans are very passionate and many have been with the game for over two decades. We want to cater to the fans, honor the game’s rich lore and visceral world-building, and at the same time evoke the powerful emotions players feel when they dive into the game.”
Diablo IV will feature cross-platform play and progression on Windows® PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, plus couch co-op on launch consoles.
