During today’s developer update livestream, Blizzard Entertainment announced Diablo IV is heading to Steam on October 17. Following the release of Overwatch 2 in August, this marks the second game from Blizzard Entertainment to become available on Steam. The game will debut on Steam alongside its second season, known as The Season of Blood.

Players who already own Diablo IV on Battle.net will have to buy a separate copy to play it on Steam. The game will support cross-progression and cross-platform play, since you’ll still have to log into your Battle.net account to play it on Steam. Perhaps the most exciting part of this announcement is that Steam Deck owners will now be able to play Diablo IV without jumping through hoops to install Battle.net. I spent a few hours playing Diablo IV on the Steam Deck and it worked well. Unfortunately, playing it on the Steam Deck didn’t address all the issues I found with the game.

Diablo IV actually runs really well on the Steam Deck

However, credit is due to the team for actively working to address many player concerns with the upcoming season. You can see a summary of all the things heading to the game in the livestream recap.
