The storyline of Diablo 4 unfolds 50 years after the events of the Reaper of Souls expansion in Diablo 3. As revealed by associated writer Eden Trujillo, the angel Inarius and the demon Lilith, the creators of Sanctuary, clash in a conflict that transforms humanity into a battleground.
The opening cinematic of the game states, "Sanctuary was never meant for humans. It was created as a refuge from the war between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells. But fate has made it a new front in the Eternal Conflict."
The secretive organization known as the Horadrim previously ensured the safety of humans. However, this once powerful order is now a hollow shell of its former glory. The ancient creators of Sanctuary have returned to seize the hearts of humanity.
