New Diablo 4 gameplay footage leaked

The new Diablo 4 leaked video is nearly an hour long and has been making rounds on the internet over the weekend.

What a way to start the week. We still haven’t fully recovered from the massive GTA 6 leak and we have another one for Diablo 4.

Diablo 4 has had a massive leak with 40 minutes of gameplay footage being shared online.

Yesterday, social media was lit up by the massive leak from Rockstar Games that revealed gameplay details for Grand Theft Auto 6. The leak will reportedly delay the game as the hackers got hold of its source code. Now, we have some never-before-seen gameplay footage for the upcoming Diablo 4.

The ARPG from Blizzard is expected to come out next year and we have seen only a limited amount of actual gameplay videos from the studio. We haven't seen much of Diablo 4 in the past few months, but this leak changes that. It consists of two videos, one of which is five minutes long while the other is thirty-eight minutes in length. The source claims that the gameplay footage comes from the still-ongoing "friends and family" alpha test.

The people talking in the video are not the ones playing the game as you can hear them discussing the footage. The voices heard in the first video were modulated in an attempt to conceal their identities. However, if you look closely, you can make out a watermark that says "Private Test Build 304286289." This should make it easy to trace the ones responsible for leaking the video.

Blizzard can and, most likely, will pursue legal action against the individuals who have broken their signed Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA).

What can we expect from Diablo 4?

The leaked video shows off a Barbarian character completing quests and exploring the map. The footage also gives us a sneak peek at the skills that the Barbarian has. The test build is unfinished as some elements such as bridges and buildings do not have textures yet. This supports the suggestion that the video is from an Alpha Test. The video also shows us the in-game store simply called "The Shop" where players can buy cosmetic items. This is in line with what Blizzard’s Senior Director of Global PR Christy Um previously mentioned that the in-game microtransactions will only have cosmetic items.

Blizzard has yet to release a statement addressing the leak. However, it is believed that the developers will come forward with more news, including the pre-orders, in December at The Game Awards.
