The latest installment of Blizzard’s hack-and-slash behemoth of a series is coming, and with it being one of the releases of the year, some players might be wondering if Diablo 4 is next-gen only. Or in other words, will it only be available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S?

Well, it’s an easy answer to give you: no! It’s been confirmed for a long time that Diablo 4 will be coming to all the major platforms of this and the last-generation: PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. (Switch players, read on…)

Will Diablo 4 be next-gen only?

With Blizzard confirming the great news that Diablo 4 is not limited to the next-gen consoles, or rather current-gen – it has been more than two years now – an even greater number of players and fans will have access to the next installment in the series. So we can heartily confirm that not only is Diablo 4 on PS4 but Diablo 4 is on Xbox One too! (See what I did there?) Meaning last-gen players can enjoy the game too.

Despite it being almost under the wing of Microsoft itself – pending the Activision Blizzard acquisition, of course – lots of folks were asking ‘is Diablo 4 would be next-gen only’, following in the footsteps of the likes of Starfield and the next Elder Scrolls games. Both of these enormous-releases are already confirmed to be Xbox Series X|S only.

Is Diablo 4 on last-gen consoles?

Absolutely it is! If you’re still rocking a PS4 or Xbox One as your main console and want to jump into the hack-and-slash epic later this year, then you’re A-OK to do so.

Having said that, and basked in the positive news for Xbox One and PS4 owners, the Nintendo Switch remains a bit of an outlier at the moment. There is currently no news that Diablo 4 will be on Nintendo Switch. But we wouldn’t lose hope totally on that. Diablo 3 did eventually come to Switch, a year or so after the console’s launch, and a full six years after the game’s initial launch

The other bad news on the Diablo 4 availability front is the answer to the question of is Diablo 4 on game pass… (Spoilers: it’s not, but maybe it will be in the future…)

Is the Diablo 4 beta on PS4 and Xbox One?

It’s good news here too for last-gen console users! If you’ve snagged a Diablo 4 pre-order on PS4 or Xbox One, then you are eligible for the Diablo 4 early access beta – which runs March 17-20, 2023. However, even if you didn’t pre-order and you’re still curious, you can wait until the open beta weekend the following weekend (March 24-27).

Is Diablo 4 gender locked?

Diablo 4 Classes are not Gender locked. Players can be a male or female of any class. You can do this in Character Creation.

Will there be more than 5 classes in Diablo 4?

Five playable classes have been announced, but fans are suggesting that a Paladin character may return. The latest Diablo 4 trailer features an army backed by Inarius, marching into Hell with shields bearing the symbol of the Zakarum, the religious organization from Diablo 2. Based on those Zakarum symbols, fans believe it’s likely that Diablo 4 will bring us the return of the Paladins.
