Sorry bovine fans – it appears there won’t be a secret cow level in Diablo 4.
First a fixture in Diablo 2, cow-themed levels have become synonymous with Diablo for some reason. They believably came about after fans theorised that there was a secret cow level in the original Diablo. There wasn’t, but Blizzard couldn’t resist putting one in Diablo 2, and then also Diablo 3.
After a group interview with Game Director Joe Shely and Diablo General Manager Rod Fergusson, Wowhead reports that when asked if there was going to be a secret cow level in Diablo 4, it was explained that it doesn’t sit well with the grounded nature of its world. But there is hope. Further down the line, things might be loosed up.
Other things won’t be making their way into Diablo 4 at launch because of this reason as well. Wings and pets are also seen to detract from the game’s more grounded nature, and so don’t expect to be acquiring any of those for a while. We can’t see them never being added to Diablo 4, though, especially with the game’s emphasis on cosmetic-based microtransactions.
So, there you have it. Diablo 4 won’t have a secret cow level, wings or pets at launch, but never say never. How do you feel about this? Let us know in the comments below.
