The Mystery of Diablo 4's Secret Post-Credits Endings


Since its release, Diablo 4 has enthralled players with its engrossing gameplay, captivating storyline, and near-perfect endgame design. Yet, it is the mystery of the game's post-credits endings that has the gaming community buzzing with speculation​.

It appears that players have unearthed multiple secret endings that occur after the credits have rolled. These endings, however, do not always appear and seem to be triggered following repeated completions of the campaign at various difficulties. The authenticity of these secret endings has been confirmed by Jamir Blanco, a cinematic character and creature artist at Blizzard​.

To date, four different "jumpscare" post-credits endings have been discovered. Each of these endings features an unnamed demonic entity, only for a fleeting second, making it challenging to make definitive statements about their implications. Nevertheless, the current speculation among players is that three of these endings feature the return of Mephisto, the Lord of Hatred, a key figure in the Diablo 4 storyline. The appearance of Mephisto isn't surprising, given the villain's central role in the plot, yet it is the fourth ending that has stirred intrigue within the Diablo community. The fourth ending teases an unknown entity, leading to speculation about the possible introduction of a new adversary in future Diablo 4 expansions​​.

Popular gaming resource WowHead suggests that the enigmatic figure in the fourth ending could be Lucion, Mephisto's son and Lilith's brother. Lucion has been mentioned in the first part of Blizzard’s lore-focused Book of Lorath series, and is referenced in the Book of Tyrael from Diablo 3. With Blizzard currently working on two expansions for Diablo 4, each set to continue the main storyline, it seems fans might have to wait a while before unravelling the true identity of this mysterious character and the implications of these secret endings​.

However, these secret endings are not the only puzzles that Diablo 4 has offered its players. Fans are also fervently debating the existence of a secret cow level, despite Blizzard's insistence that no such level exists within the game​.

In conclusion, the mysteries of Diablo 4 continue to captivate its player base, driving speculation, debate, and engagement. It seems that the game's creators have successfully tapped into the allure of the unknown, adding another layer of intrigue to an already critically acclaimed title. As the journey in Diablo 4 continues, players eagerly await the revelations that future gameplay and expansions might bring.
