The main story of the latest Diablo game left numerous questions so we will explain the ending of Diablo 4 for those looking for some kind of answers. Hopefully, this guide will help you figure out what is going on in the world of Sanctuary and what exactly happened during the war between the followers of Inarius and Lilith fanatics.
Also, the events of Diablo 4 don't feel like the end of this particular story. Instead, the game leaves us with some kind of cliffhanger and we would like to talk about what will come next.
The story before Diablo 4
The story of Diablo 4 takes place 50 years after the events of Diablo 3, which means that the demon lords known as the Great Evils are beaten. Also, the rogue archangel Malthael no longer threatens the world, and it can be said that Sanctuary has lived in peace for these five decades. However, everything changes with the arrival of Lilith.
The daughter of Mephisto is the mother of all Nephalem and the former lover of Inarius. Both of these figures have become quite popular. Inarius has a church that worships him as some kind of God, while Lilith is praised by a secret cult. These cultists managed to free her, which started the events of Diablo 4.
What happens at the end of Diablo 4?
At the end of this game, we witnessed another battle. Lilith killed Inarius and made an attempt to absorb the power of her father. However, the player managed to find Mephisto first. Despite all the attempts of the Great Evil to ally with the protagonist, his soul gets trapped in the Soulstone.
After that, the player defeats Lilith, who then dies and says that the Great Evils will be back soon. So, Sanctuary will be in danger again, and we will have to stop Diablo one more time. Yes, he is likely to return as we could see him in one of our visions and is the main antagonist of the series.
As for the Soulstone, Nyrelle takes it and asks the protagonist not to seek her. The wolf that was the main form of Mephisto in Diablo 4 is following her, and we have yet to find out her plans for this terrifying artifact.
What will happen after Diablo 4?
Diablo 4 ended with an obvious cliffhanger and it will receive a few updates that will continue its story. So, we will most likely have to face the new arrival of the Great Evils. We expect to see Diablo again as he is the main bad guy in this franchise.
Also, it seems that Mephisto will become a threat, which is great. As a boss, he appeared only in Diablo 2, and it would be cool if he was a major antagonist again. Baal is the third of these brothers, and perhaps he will also participate in the future events of Diablo 4.
In any case, the story of Diablo 4 is not over and we look forward to future content updates. The demonic hordes are still a threat and we wish you the best of luck in fighting them.
