Blizzard covered a baroque church with demonic Diablo IV murals

Diablo IV

Blizzard Entertainment is pulling all the stops out with promoting Diablo IV – now they’ve put massive demonic art into a church.

The developer hired a team of artists to create massive 100+ foot murals that got installed over walls of the La Chapelle des Jesuites (Jesuits Chapel) in Camrai, France.

Built in the 17th century, the baroque-style church had most of its interior covered up with the giant frescoes depicting Diablo IV’s central battle: the nephelim heroes of Sanctuary and the Succubi Queen, Lilith.

To be clear: Blizzard didn’t actually paint over the entire inside of a French church, they painted the murals on canvas and then installed the couple dozen paintings onto the walls and ceiling.

Here’s a trailer for the massive artwork, plus a behind the scenes video on how it was made:

Lastly, Blizzard is also giving fans the chance to get their faces painted within the murals, but only if you play the forthcoming beta and reach level 25.

The game’s big open beta is being held in two blocks: for pre-orders from March 17th to the 19th and then for everyone from March 24th through the 26th – read more on about the beta here.

Diablo IV is set to launch on June 6th, 2023 across Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5.
