Blizzard has unveiled a three-hour stream of lo-fi Official Diablo, and frankly, the vibes are impeccable.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Diablo’s music, and I don’t think it’s just because the first two games were pivotal to my preference in gaming, my summers growing up in the early 2000s, and probably my career. The beautiful guitar arpeggiation in Diablo 1 and the haunting strum that makes up the Tristram theme are some of my all-time favorite pieces of music in games, and now I have a full three hours of lo-fi beats to stick around and listen to. .
The music was adapted for the low-key, meditative lo-fi genre by the group. rezodrone (opens in a new tab), which is a two-part act composed of musicians Jason Charles Miller and Jamison Boaz.

Blizzard dropped the lo-fi stream without much fanfare, leaving it to longtime fans of the series to hype it up. Twitter (opens in a new tab), YouTube and of course the good old GamesRadar. The music doesn’t seem to be part of Diablo 4’s pre-release campaign either, as the music is all from the older games.
We recently learned that Diablo 4 will have an open beta from March 17-19 for those who pre-order the game and March 24-26 for everyone else. The game properly launches on June 6 for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. Until then, I’ll be rocking to these sweet lo-fi beats and dreaming of Sanctuary.
here are some games like Diablo to hold you until June.
