Diablo 4: A disappointing collector's edition with a bizarre candle

Diablo 4: A disappointing collector's edition with a bizarre candle

These days it's fashionable to incorporate a nice figurine, helmet or notable accessory into the big AAA collector's editions. But for the Diablo IV release, Blizzard made the strange choice of adding a big satanic candle that may not convince all players.

Recent previews of Diablo 4 have been very positive, but the people in charge of communicating and promoting the game are making some pretty weird choices. We note for example the promotional campaign on Twitter with a questionnaire, but which only reveals at the very end that the prizes are only applicable to Americans living in the 5 largest cities of the country. Too bad for the others.

The angry candle

The release date of June 6, 2023 has been made official, which comes with various digital versions of Diablo 4, with a range of in-game cosmetic bonuses and early beta access, among others. But for those who prefer physical goodies, a collector's box is also available. On the other hand, one wonders if they could not have found something better than a candle to put inside. If you want to perform a satanic ceremony by placing them on a pentacle, you will have to buy 5 boxes. Jokes aside, offering a more affordable Lilith figurine than the one present on the online store , or even a figurine of the angel Inarius, would certainly have been a better idea. A combination of the two, to represent their legendary clash seen in the trailer, would certainly have been more tempting for players. At least the box itself is pretty.

Contents of the Diablo IV Limited Edition Collector's Box

The first important point to note with this box is that it does not contain the game , for fairly obvious reasons: delivery and pre-order problems. It would be a shame not to be able to play while waiting for your collector's box. It is also problematic to find a collector's edition for its platform, the Xbox One versions could be unsold, or the codes would be useless, for example. The important thing is not to make the mistake of assuming that the game is included. If you want to play Diablo 4, it is better to turn to the digital editions. The Diablo 4 Limited Edition Collector's Box is purchased from the Blizzard Gear Store directly, not from the same store as the games. It will be available in limited quantities from December 15 for the first live stream of the game developers, who will present the box and its contents. Its price is still unknown .
