World map size in Diablo 4

How big is the Diablo 4 map?

Blizzard announced that Diablo 4's world map will be massive compared to past Diablo games [1], weighing in at 10 to 20 times larger. The map will be open, with the world's 5 regions seamlessly connected, and have longer distances perfect for traversing with a mount.

"The concept team got ahold of this idea of a vast, open world and thought that was really exciting. Diablo levels have always felt a bit like corridors or I skirt around the edges and work my way towards the middle. There was always that border that was a little frustrating and I think for this game, those borders are gone. What if the region itself was 10 or 20 times larger than any previous Diablo region. You know -- so large that mounts might actually be required to cross these distances. There's going to be five connected regions to explore with distinct geological and unique biomes."

What is Estuar?

Estuar is the continent that Diablo 4 takes place on. Sanctuary consists of 2 continents separated by the Twin Seas, and Estuar is the eastern one. Diablo 4's storyline takes players through the top two-thirds of Estuar. The bottom of Estuar, filled with marshes, jungles, and mountains, may be reserved for a future expansion or Season.

Estuar Wanderer Challenge

Ambitious players that discover/explore every area of the game's 5 Regions fulfill the requirements of the Estuar Wanderer Challenge and receive the Trade Consortium Tack Mount Armor.
