Will Diablo III – The Eternal Collection on Switch require online? If so, for which parts?
The Nintendo Switch is getting a big title from Blizzard in the form of Diablo III – The Eternal Collection, and gamers have been asking whether they will need the internet for certain aspects of the game. Well, Blizzard answered this and noted the following:
“I see there’s some confusion about the necessity of the Nintendo Switch Online service in relations to the upcoming Diablo 3: Eternal Collection. To clarify, access to playing Seasons does not require a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. However, access to online multiplayer does. This is identical to the way gameplay features function for the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Diablo 3 as well. Hope this makes the situation more clear!”
The game arrives on Switch on November 2nd.
