The open beta for Diablo 4 is live, allowing new and returning players to try the next big entry in the action RPG from Blizzard.
While first impressions of the game have been mostly positive, Diablo 4 has struggled with online servers. This has primarily been caused by many fans looking to jump in, leading to long wait times.
Following these issues, many Diablo fans on Reddit have expressed interest in an offline mode for the game.
An obvious benefit of an offline mode would be improved online experiences for the community.
Many players are not too fond of the online elements in Diablo 4. However, they are currently forced to play the game online. These players have little to gain from playing online, but they can end up stressing the servers, as seen by the recent beta queues.
This demand also comes from player preference. Some users have claimed they prefer to enjoy the game as a solo experience rather than teaming up with other players online.
However, an offline-only mode might be easier said than done for a game like Diablo 4. If the game is designed around the online elements, Blizzard would need to make various tweaks for an offline mode.
Some fans have also suggested a middle ground with a private online mode. This would allow players to experience the game without interruptions from others, while the developers would not need to work on a separate offline mode.
Ignoring the connectivity issues, Diablo 4 appears to be an impressive game for the franchise. For those who have not tried it yet, the open beta is still live, and fans can try the game until March 27 before its official release on June 6.
