Mounts are new to Diablo’s universe, fitting in-line with Blizzard’s description of a larger world for Diablo 4. Mounts can be used to travel faster between waypoints and in conjunction with class-specific dismount abilities. Further, you can customize your mount’s appearance, changing everything from saddles to armor to horseshoes. Altering your mount’s appearance also improves its abilities, like equipping armor that decreases the damage taken on a mount and more.
For them to feel grounded in Diablo 4’s world, Blizzard intends to include various kinds of mounts–from demon horses to faceless mounts and everything in between. And to give the mounts some flare, each class has specific dismount abilities tailored to their playstyle. The Sorceress, for example, sends out an ice storm that freezes everything in a straight line in front of her; while the Barbarian causes a ground slam AOE attack. Dismount abilities can be used to combo with other players.
Though revealed earlier today, Blizzard didn’t specify a release date or window for Diablo 4. The company did confirm that the latest installment to the beloved action-RPG franchise is now in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Alongside the announcement, Blizzard shared official Diablo 4 cinematic and gameplay trailers, showing off the new world and returning classes.
