Clans are a collective of players that group and slay demons together. Diablo 4 is similar to previous iterations of the franchise and give many options to define how your clan hacks and slashes the evils of Hell!
All information in this article is from the Press Preview Access of Diablo 4. The content presented here is subject to change, and will be updated as we learn more.
Creating a Clan
Creating a clan in Diablo 4 is simple, with many options. First, hit "N" on your keyboard to get to the Clan Tab. A new prompt appears asking you to "Join a Clan" through a publicly listed search, or make one yourself by selecting "Create Clan". Select "Create Clan". There is no cost or level requirement. In the new "Create Clan window, fill out the following:
- Clan Name - What the clan is called. Can be up to 24 characters long.
- Clan Tag - What other players in the world see. Make similar to the clan name. Can be up to 6 characters long.
- Clan Description - Describe the purpose or goal of your clan.
- Language - Select a desired language for your clan.
- Labels - Pick a label that best describes the majority of your clan's activity revolves around.
Once created, you are greeted with the clan's landing page. Similar to Diablo 3, clans can have up to 150 members and all characters from your account (Softcore & Hardcore) are part of the same clan. By default, the clan is public and can be searched. You can adjust this in the Clan Settings. You can manage your clan's Join Requests via the top tab. A panel displaying clan members can be seen as well. Lastly, there is a newsfeed of your clan member's latest achievements.
The clan settings give you many ways to customize the goal of your clan and its look.

A list of results appears on the left-hand side when the search is done. Clicking on a clan gives further information on the right panel. Such information include the:

Click on the "Request to Join" button when you find a clan of interest. Just need to wait and see if the Clan Leader and/or Officers accept you.
Clans in Diablo 4 are great for finding like-minded players. Want to be part of a world exploring clan, you're covered. Looking for a cutting edge PvE clan, you're good to go. Feel the need to be ruthless with friends in PvP, there's a clan of killers for you. Whatever you do in Diablo 4, there is a home waiting for you out there in the world of Sanctuary.
