Learn how to set up Diablo 4 multiplayer, from knowing how far you and your friends need to progress through the campaign and how to invite them to your party.

Diablo 4 multiplayer - five heroes fighting against the demonic hordes.

How does Diablo 4 multiplayer work? Sometimes it can be tiring to slay all of hell’s demons alone. Even classes that can summon help from the corpses of dead enemies or call for aid from the beasts roaming the world of Sanctuary may find that it’s not enough. Having a buddy or two watching your back might be what saves you from being overwhelmed.

When you first emerge from the cave during the snowstorm, you won’t be able to play Diablo 4 multiplayer. However, the option becomes open to you shortly after starting the RPG game’s prologue, which happens when arriving in Diablo 4’s first village area, Nevesk, for the first time. You can summon help from anyone on your Battle Net friends list, so here we’ll tell you how to invite them to your party and, if needed, what you need to do to add them to your friends list.

Diablo 4 multiplayer level

When playing with friends, you may be at different levels, particularly if you’re introducing a friend to D4 for the first time. In Diablo 4 multiplayer, you must all play at the same D4 World Tier, but bosses and foes will level to match your own current level.

In other words, if you’re a higher level than your friends, you’ll deal less damage and take more while you tackle the same foe.

Once your invitation is sent and accepted, your friends will teleport to you, allowing you all to play Diablo 4 multiplayer cooperatively.
