Diablo 4 Live-Action Launch Trailer Pretty Much Begs You to Buy the Game

The new trailer features various live actors asking you to save them when the action RPG launches on June 6th for consoles and PC.

Diablo 4 has already received launch trailers for its story and gameplay before its release next month. Nevertheless, Blizzard Entertainment is going for the triple whammy with a live-action launch trailer. Check it out below.

The launch trailer features the main classes – the Barbarian, Rogue, Druid, Sorcerer and Necromancer – battling the forces of Lilith. However, the main focus is on actual people, begging you to save them. A child stands among burning wreckage and asks point-blank, “Will you save us?” A man who lost his horses says, “Whatever you can do. We beg you.”

Cowering as her town is attacked by demons, a woman pleads with you to end their terror. Lilith looms at the end behind the child, who then tells you to hurry. If that’s not the most blatant, appeal-to-your-emotions way of selling a $70 live-service action RPG with microtransactions and a Battle Pass, I don’t know what is.

Diablo 4 launches on June 6th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC. Deluxe and Ultimate Edition owners gain early access on June 2nd, but pre-loads go live for everyone on May 30th.
