The Diablo IV Open Beta will be available from March 24 to 26, and naturally there are plenty of players interested in trying out the Blizzard Entertainment game early. Even the company anticipated that there will be long waiting times to enter.
Some of the lucky ones who have been able to play have a complaint: their characters get weaker as they level up. This happens because of a mechanic that adjusts the difficulty of the game. According to Joseph Peiopera, Associate Director for Diablo IV, this is intentional, because the characters haven’t unlocked their full potential yet.

Peiopera commented on this during a select media Q&A session seen by LEVEL UP. When Peiopera learned of the situation some players are facing, especially those who choose the Barbarian as their starting class, he clarified that the system exists to offer a challenge to the experience: “There are several things that we do on the monster side to make them more challenging as the player levels up, and as character classes continue to grow in power.”
The manager commented that, as the characters grow and level up, they have access to new mechanics that make them more powerful. About the Sorcerer, he said that there is a low-level mission that allows him to access an enchantment system. In the case of the Barbarian, Peiopera said: “The character has a class quest that requires you to go to Pasos Secos, a location that is not part of the Beta that is currently underway.”

Peiopera took advantage of the meeting and the question to delve into the balance and balance of the classes and abilities: “In terms of balance, as players advance in the base game and level up, they will have access to all these additional tools that they are not seeing right now, and they will continue to get stronger with time.”
So here you have it: if you feel like your character is getting weaker as you level up, it’s because the developers want it that way; yes… that is his intention. However, there are also ways and mechanics to make your character more powerful, the problem is that, in some cases, they are not part of the Diablo IV ongoing test.
The Diablo IV Open Beta version will be available from today, March 24, until March 26 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 and PC. Stay informed about Diablo IV with us at LEVEL UP.
