Diablo 4 will offer NPC companions, but initially only in the campaign
Also in Diablo IIas well as in Diablo III players could use the help of companions – mercenary warriors willing to use weapons or magic on our behalf. There were many of them in the “two”, and you had to pay for the services offered. However, in the “three” you could meet only three – the templar Kormac, the scoundrel Lyndon and the sorceress Eirena – but each of these characters had their own plot background.
If you’re wondering how will this issue be resolved Diablo IVLauren Bergin from the site comes with a partial answer PCGamesNwho asked Adam Z. Jackson – the main designer of the classes in the “four”.
In the premiere version of the game, we placed several plot points in which NPCs named after the hero follow and help himas he tries to figure out what Lilith’s plans are. We don’t have anything to announce that resembles a mercenary system similar to that of Diablo II “For now, we’re just focusing on the campaign. Stay tuned though, this may change in the future, but we make no promises.
Bergin mentioned that this last sentence caused a funny reaction from one of the developers Diablo IV, namely Ash Sweetring, who is responsible for developing the dungeons that we will visit in the game. This may mean that Blizzard already has plans for companions. It is possible that they refer to the so-called endgame.
As a reminder, I will add that the premiere Diablo IV scheduled for June 6, 2023. The title is to be released on PC, PS4, PS5, XOne and XSX/S.
