In terms of image quality, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X run the game at a native 4K (2160p) Meanwhile, the native resolution is lower on Xbox Series S, running at 1440p.

In terms of performance, the game targets a frame rate of 60fps on all three consoles, and largely does a good job of maintaining the target. However, there are instances of stuttering in all versions, likely due to assets loading in the background. The PS5 version fares worst in these instances, with the highest frame time spikes.

As far as load times are concerned, all three of the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S take a little under 6 seconds to load. Meanwhile, the PC version loads a bit faster in 5 and a half seconds.

All in all, all console versions deliver a good overall experience, though the Xbox Series X is impacted the least during instances of stuttering. The PC version is capable of going further, with higher graphical settings and frame rates higher than 60fps.

Diablo IV is an upcoming action role-playing game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment, and is the fourth main installment in the Diablo series. The game’s release date was revealed on June 12, 2022, after the game’s announcement on November 1, 2019 during BlizzCon 2019. While new elements like an open environment and pvp interactions will be added, series staples like re-playable, randomly generated dungeons and loot-focused character building will remain.
