Within just a few weeks, Diablo 4 gameplay was leaked again, this time on a large scale. A player was apparently streaming for friends on Discord and the recordings ended up online: a full 43 minutes of gameplay.
The leak shows: Two videos have surfaced on reddit, one 5 and one 38 minutes long, showing gameplay of Diablo 4. It shows, among other things, some quests, the skills of the various classes and even the skill tree.
What might be of particular interest to many, however, is the shop briefly shown in the shorter video. One scene shows the content of the in-game shop, where cosmetic content for players and mounts can be purchased for a premium currency.
The prices are currently 2,500 units of the currency, but there is no conversion factor. Blizzard has repeatedly promised that the store will have purely cosmetic content, and according to the leak, that appears to be true.
We cannot embed the videos themselves, but you can still find them on reddit. Only a few days earlier, the first cinematic of Diablo 4 appeared on the net.
Here’s the official gameplay trailer for Druid, Sorceress and Barbarian:
“Bad to do that to a friend”
What fans say: The reaction of Diablo fans is largely positive. They’re excited to see more of Diablo 4 and find it amusing that content on this huge topic is only previewed shortly after the big GTA 6 leak.
Some joke that they wouldn’t be surprised if Elder Scrolls 6 or Half Life 3 were leaked. It seems such a time right now. However, a good number of fans are also disappointed – not by the leak, but by the leaker.

The recordings come from the Family&Friends alpha, i.e. an absolutely familiar approach. There are watermarks with the build everywhere, clearly indicating who broke their non-disclosure agreement there.
The leaker tries to disguise his identity with voice distortion, but it remains to be seen whether that will be of any use. Even with the first big leak, fans mocked the player’s stupidity. Now it says:
I’m all for leaks, but leaking from a Family&Friends test is weak. Not the dissemination, but the person behind it. An employee does them a favor, it can easily be brought back to them and they get fired for it. It sucks to do that to a friend.

Diablo 4 is still in an alpha state where a lot can be changed. Although the game looks finished in the pictures, the technical aspect cannot yet be read from them.
When exactly the beta will start and when Diablo 4 will be released, we can’t say yet. Nor whether the content shown will remain as it can be seen in the leak. Diablo 4 should be further developed over the years anyway:
Blizzard promises: An “army of developers” should provide Diablo 4 with updates for years
