Diablo 4 Becomes Blizzard’s “Fastest Selling” Game To Date

Activision Blizzard announces Diablo 4 has now become the fastest-selling title in their catalogue of games.

Diablo 4 Becomes Blizzard’s “Fastest Selling” Game To Date

Reaching new heights, Diablo 4 is now Blizzard’s “fastest-selling” title of all time. A recent press release shared staggering numbers such as how the game has incurred over 93 million hours of combined player game time in just four days of early access. Putting that into perspective that attributes to over 10,000 years. That would be the same as playing the Action-RPG 24 hours straight since the time human civilisation began. Not bad for a title that has demons such as Lilith running the show.

Just How Fast is Fast

Blizzard hasn’t revealed the exact numbers. However, if you compare it to previous rapidly selling titles such as World of Warcraft: Shadowlands which managed to sell 3.7 million within 24 hours of launch, Diablo 4 has done even better. It marks the highest number of pre-launch units sold over both consoles and PC.

Diablo 4 has been officially released since June 6th, when all players could finally start the grind to 100 to have their names immortalised if they are the first 1000 players playing on Hardcore Mode. Hardcore Mode for those unfamiliar is exactly what it sounds like. If your character dies, they’re out for good and cannot resurrect. But surely the risk doesn’t outweigh the reward of having your name engraved for all eternity on a statue of Lilith? One of the first to have complete this challenge has already been added.

But dying in Diablo 4 does come with some perks. Blizz has definitely not skimped on the marketing budget as you can also submit one of your epic deaths for a chance to have your eulogy read by Megan Fox.

The Battle for Sanctuary

The latest entry in the Diablo series has been receiving rave reviews, including our own. If you’re still on the fence about whether to gallop your way into Sanctuary you can venture into our review which covers everything you need to know about the latest ARPG in the franchise. Fex gives high praise to this title scoring it with an apt 9.3. Calling this foray into the dark fantasy world a clever melding of “open world and online elements” and shares that it will “become the favourite time-sink of millions for years to come”.

Two expansions are reportedly in the works for Diablo 4.

Blizzard aren’t slowing down anytime soon as recent reports have stated that there are two expansions underway. This means Diablo 4 is gaining double the expansions of its predecessors Diablo 2 and Diablo 3.

You also don’t need to go it alone as we have plenty of guides from our Diablo 4 Endgame Guide to class builds such as the Diablo 4 Necromancer Build – Reaper. You can also catch up playing the game live on our Twitch channel. For everything else head to the wiki.
