New Class: The Spiritborn

Ranked among the apex predators of the jungle, the Spiritborn is an entirely new class to the Diablo Series. They are battle-hardened with mystical synergies that could only be awakened deep within the jungles of Nahantu. Become one of the Spiritborn and embrace the ethereal Spirits entwined with this ancient civilization.

While this Class remains shrouded in mystery, all shall be revealed in time. Join us for our Spiritborn Class Reveal on July 18, where the team will take an in-depth look to learn more about this groundbreaking Class.

Explore Nahantu

Sanctuary expands to the vast region of Nahantu, beckoning you forth. Wanderers of yore may recall echoes of Nahantu in Diablo II.

Experience everything from forgotten ruins to new Towns and take on new dungeons, Strongholds, and the warring tribes scattered throughout the region. Will you survive amongst the hellish overgrowth of Kurast or the barren desert plains of Teganze?

Experience the Next Chapter

Prepare for the next riveting chapter in the main story of Diablo IV. Starting where she last left us, the search for Neyrelle takes you deep into the ancient jungle as she grapples with the imprisoned Prime Evil. Attempt to unravel Mephisto’s dark plot while new foes encircle your every move, planning your demise. The fate of Neyrelle’s soul--and her ability to stop this Prime Evil from destroying Sanctuary--rests in your hands.

Mercenaries & Endgame Updates


Is it not better to wander with a friend by your side? Never fight alone as Mercenaries can join you on your quest to battle side by side with you in the dense undergrowth of Nahantu and beyond. These powerful allies grow in power as they progress, and each are equipped with unique abilities to help you in combat.
