The Diablo franchise is one of the most influential isometric role-playing games. It more or less wrote the book on how to make an engaging dungeon crawler that also has an enthralling storyline and brooding world.
Fans around the world, therefore, lost their collective minds when the fourth installment, aptly titled Diablo IV, was announced at Blizzcon 2019. One of the biggest shifts is the requirement for players to be online at all times. The reason for this is that, for the first time, the series is pushing hard to include MMO elements in the play experience.
This can pose a problem for longtime players that don’t exactly have the most stable internet connection. Thankfully there is a solution that can aid you when the game releases in the near-future.
Welcome to the world of port forwarding.
The basic idea of port forwarding is that you configure your router to receive a connection it wouldn’t ordinarily. By default, you cannot tunnel (another term for port forwarding) as it poses a security risk. Despite this, if you want a faster connection to the Blizzard servers for Diablo IV, you should consider port forwarding.
So, how exactly do we do this? Read on to find out.
For console players of Diablo IV, there is a different set of commands to follow. Since the next console generation is not out yet, we will assume you are playing on the XBOX One or Playstation 4.
Once you have this information, and are certain of its accuracy, you can now proceed to port forward.
This can be a pain, as most administrators with massive technical know-how are the ones doing this final step. A huge hurdle is that all routers are different and may require more than just the listed steps. This requires individual study of your router to know how to properly configure it.
Playing Diablo IV shouldn’t have to put you at risk for a bad gaming experience, nor should it force you to have an unsecured internet connection.
