Run out of content in Diablo 4? “Take a break and go play something else,” lead dev says

Despite common knowledge that Diablo 4 would take the average player over 150 hours to reach Level 100, as well as many more hours on top of that to venture through endgame content, some players are just more, for lack of better term, zealous than others when it comes to racing through the entirety of a game. To these extra-determined Diablo 4 players who find themselves running out of things to do after the game’s release over a month ago, Blizzard says, “Take a break and go play something else for a while.”

The advice was relayed in a recent Blizzard livestream detailing the upcoming Season of the Malignant, which featured a number of Diablo 4 devs revealing new content, enemies and mechanics. One hotly debated topic included the reveal that players will have to create a brand-new character to go along with each new Battle Pass, the upcoming Season of the Malignant being no exception. Diablo general manager Rod Fergusson explained that the decision stems from allowing new players as well as players who have taken time off from the game to join in every season without feeling overwhelmed.

“Seasons allow us to have a fresh start for everybody,” Fergusson said, “and makes sure players have a starting point together.”

“When you’ve reached all the goals and done the things you think are important, take a break,” associate game director Joseph Piepiora added, “we do the same.” Piepiora also mentioned that “a great time to come back” to Diabo 4 is during a new season launch. “And there’s new things to come check out… that’s exactly when you should come back and check out Diablo 4 fresh.”

The sentiment was reiterated by another developer on the panel. “I’ll be honest,” the dev said, “when the next [World Of Warcraft] expansion comes out, there’s a non-zero chance that I’m gonna be playing [it] for a while. But it’s great to know there’s a point that I can come back to Diablo 4 and everyone’s on an even footing.”

Diablo 4‘s Season of the Malignant is set to go live on July 20th. Until then, if you’ve already run out of content in Diablo 4, heed the developers advice and take a break, will ya?

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
