Ever since a new Diablo 4 development video went live on YouTube yesterday, many fans are happy about the discovery an inconspicuous feature at first glance – which has even been confirmed for a few weeks. In the video, however, a small red button was clearly visible during character selection, on which
skip campaign was to read.
You can skip the story campaign with your created characters at the push of a button and simply ignore the whole story about the daughter of hate. Sounds like a curious feature, but it makes perfect sense for Diablo.
How to skip campaign in Diablo 4
When you boot up Diablo 4 for the first time on June 6th and happily carve your character in the editor, you probably won’t see the option to skip the campaign just yet. This is only possible if you have already played through the story with at least one character.
After that, however, you can jump straight to the end of the storyline with each new character, and apparently even when the second character has already started their own journey. This way you bypass all story missions and cutscenes. Instead, you probably start at level 1 directly in the first area and from here you can explore the open world completely freely.
It is not yet clear which features will be different and what exactly is missing. For example, whether you can still play through the story dungeons or not. In any case, you are free to level up your character and explore the world with any action.
Why is this important to Diablo?
For many Diablo fans, the game doesn’t end with the completion of the main storyline. Instead, they continue to improve their hero and look forward to new seasons to level up more characters. This endgame grind used to consist mainly of playing through the story of Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 over and over again.
However, since Diablo 3 and the addon Reaper of Souls there has been an adventure mode. The whole world is open to you from the start and you don’t have to work through the story quests. Of course, this saves a lot of time for many who primarily want to play dungeons or complete side tasks.
You can also approach the new seasons with new characters in this way without having to play through the prologue or stick to story processes every time.
What do you think of the feature? Are you more old school and prefer to play through the story with new characters, or are you just not interested in the storyline of a Diablo anyway? Write us your opinions in the comments!
