In case you’ve missed the news, Blizzard’s latest game is the fourth installment in its popular Diablo series.
In Diablo IV, the demon Lilith and the angel Inarius united to create the world of Sanctuary in their desire to escape the Eternal Conflict between Heaven and Hell. But now, decades after the events of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls®, they are bitter enemies who have resorted to war against each other with their respective followers. The lands of Sanctuary have become plagued with ceaseless demons, and only the most steadfast of heroes will be able to hold in the face of darkness. Players will enter the world with their choice of five classes—the shapeshifting Druids, agile Rogues, elemental Sorcerers, brutal Barbarians, and cunning Necromancers. As players grow in power, they can build their gameplay experience in directions that appeal to them, experimenting with skill trees to showcase complimenting spells and abilities.Diablo IV game synopsis

The ComfortMax System delivers 4 points of adjustability and breathable AirWeave Memory Foam cushions for marathon sessions on any platform. The Arctis Nova 7 Diablo IV Edition includes an in-game item.
Aerox 5 Wireless | Diablo IV Edition

QcK Heavy XXL | Diablo IV Edition
The Diablo IV Edition QcK XXL Heavy Mousepad serves as a gateway to the world of Sanctuary. The pinnacle of surface performance, innovation, and style, the QcK heavy mousepad has been engineered with exclusive micro-woven cloth for maximum control and optimized for low and high CPI tracking movements, and a 900 mm x 400 mm x 4 mm playing surface provides players with maximum control. An extra thick, non-slip rubber base eliminates unwanted movement. SteelSeries gaming mousepads are engineered for all levels of play and are highly recommended by esports pros.
Artisan Keycap | Diablo IV Edition
Customization is key, especially with a keyboard. The stunning Diablo IV Edition SteelSeries Artisan keycap is inspired by the Diablo IV hell gate. Each individual key cap has been crafted into a mold, then cast and hand-painted with an embossed emblem depicting Diablo’s demonic visage. There are only 2,160 of these legendary items in the world and you can find them on SteelSeries.com and Kontrolfreek.com.
KontrolFreek Performance Thumbsticks | Diablo IV Edition
The Diablo IV Edition KontrolFreek Performance Thumbsticks feature an official laser-etched design and blood-red colorway that have been designed to help immerse players in the fight for the fate of the world. A versatile low-rise profile provides players with more grip, and increases control, as they hack, slash, and cast to conquer the nightmarish dungeons and besieged towns of Sanctuary. Adding 5.5mm of height to the original stock controller sticks for increased arc distance and precision, the low-rise Thumbstick reduces the amount of force required for movements, decreasing hand fatigue, improving accuracy, and enhancing overall control. A special collector’s edition set of Thumbsticks with a Heroes Cube case will be available on launch day and includes an in-game item.
