Blizzard Entertainment has revealed a new feature in Diablo IV that lets players skip the main campaign entirely – but with a catch.
The new campaign skip feature – which is available at any time and even at the character creator screen – is only available after you’ve played through the entire campaign the first time on your account.
After that, you’ll unlock the ability to skip the main Diablo IV campaign with any new characters you roll, with everything in the game world unlocked from the get-go.
This is naturally a way for players to re-roll new builds quickly, as you can go straight to whatever your preferred area to grind resides. You’ll also be able to do your favorite quests or seek your favorite rewards before hitting the end game content.
Here’s the new behind-the-scenes developer diary video:
