The return of Diablo IV is highly anticipated and with the release of the Diablo IV story launch trailer, fans are now even more excited for the upcoming game. According to the trailer, the story picks up years after the events of Diablo III, where millions have been killed by the forces of the High Heavens and Burning Hells. The resulting power vacuum leads to Lilith’s resurgence, who is the daughter of Mephisto and the creator of humanity. Lilith’s return brings darkness to Sanctuary, as she cultivates the worst in its denizens.
Sanctuary, already caught among the Eternal Conflict, is facing another wave of conflict between the angels and demons. The trailer further reveals that Inarius is planning to take his loyal knights on a march towards Hell, while Lilith serves neither side but promises more to the loyal after luring them in the first chapter. The narrator explains how the region was born from the conflict between Inarius and Lilith, and how the scars of that conflict still affect Sanctuary today.
With Lilith’s return and the ongoing battles between the angels and demons, the trailer teases what’s next in the Eternal Conflict. It’s no secret that Lilith is a major part of the story and her return is one of the highlights of the game.
In the meantime, Blizzard is hyping up fans for the upcoming release of Diablo IV by releasing interactive short stories in the form of Book of Lorath lore videos. These videos bring new players up to speed with the world of sanctuary and also refresh the fans’ memory of the story, leading up to the release of this highly-anticipated game.
