Diablo 4 Gets Live-Action Trailer Directed By Oscar-Winner Chloé Zhao
Blizzard has released a new trailer for Diablo IV ahead of its launch on June 6, featuring epic live-action scenes directed by Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao. The trailer is titled “Saviors Wanted,” and features the NPCs of the Diablo universe calling out to the protagonist (or rather, the player) for help.
“Working with Blizzard, we had the wonderful opportunity to bring the dark, thrilling and imaginative world of Diablo IV to life,” Zhao said of her work on the trailer. “Diablo fans are very passionate, and many have been with the game for over two decades. We want to do right by the fans, honor the game’s rich lores and visceral world building while evoking the strong emotions the players feel while immersing in the game.”
