Diablo 4 will not have a map overlay at launch

those who wait devil 4 You may be surprised to hear that the game will not feature a map overlay.

They should be surprised, considering it was a quality of life feature in previous Diablo games.

According Diablo General Manager Rod FergussonBlizzard “has no plans at this time” to implement the long-use feature.

This means that players will either have to rely on the minimap or interrupt their game by opening the full map; the latter can really break the immersion at times, depending on the game.

Hopefully Blizzard will change their mind and a map overlay will be added in the future.

Recently, the studio applied many fixes and updates to Diablo 4 due to player feedback and gameplay data from beta versions.

These changes included dungeon event tweaks, class tweaks, dungeon optimizations, spawn rate increases, boss mechanic changes, various quality of life fixes, and everything in between.
