Diablo 4 armor prices are giving Modern Warfare 2 and OW2 competition, so you might want to save up your currency before kitting out your best Diablo 4 classes.

Just like many of the best RPG games on PS5 and Xbox, Diablo 4 is going to let you give your characters a personalized look – no matter which one of the Diablo 4 classes you choose. However, getting your hands on some of the best Diablo 4 armor sets out there won’t necessarily be as cheap as it could be. With the Diablo 4 Season 1 release date approaching, many players are discovering that the game’s cosmetics are as expensive as Modern Warfare 2‘s and Overwatch 2‘s more sought-after skin bundles.

Diablo 4 player and Redditor ‘Uberkull’ has highlighted the armor sets online, explaining that they are “ok with [a Diablo 4] cosmetic cash shop” but expressing dismay at the $28 price tag attached.

Diablo 4 armor is limited to specific classes this time, so you won’t be able to experiment with them on other builds. Though Diablo 4 cosmetics are purely aesthetical changes, it is a shame that a level of versatility is missing. Redditor ‘DST_Unbelieveable‘ isn’t about to shell out the asking price either: “Yeah, these types of insane prices have always made it a guarantee that I will never buy any in-game cosmetics for games I play.”

Fans like ‘kainneabsolute’ point toward fellow Activision IP Overwatch 2, saying that Diablo 4’s cosmetics are “even more expensive than OW2 skins.” The comparisons to the popular FPS don’t end there either, as ‘lycancanislupus’ pokes fun at OW2’s abandoned PvE content: “Are they gonna abandon PvE as well in Diablo 4?”

The Diablo 4 armor set depicted is the Wraith Lord set, which will set you back a minimum of 2,800 Diablo 4 Premium Currency – which equates to $24.99. Comparatively, 2,400 Call of Duty points and 2,200 OW2 Coins cost $19.99 via the PlayStation and Microsoft storefronts. Players can earn this by completing tiers within the Diablo 4 battle pass, or if compelled to do so, by spending cash to top up their funds. You might also want to look at all the Diablo 4 pre-order bonuses available, too – as there are some interesting deals out there for players to get a little more content at launch.

Whether you decide to splash out on your Diablo 4 build is down to you, but you’ll need more than just badass-looking armor as you roam around the Diablo 4 map to survive Sanctuary. We’ve made it easier for you when it comes to expecting what Diablo 4 bosses are lurking out there, which you’ll undoubtedly encounter as you seek to explore all of the Diablo 4 dungeons.

Slotted between the ranks of many upcoming PS5 games, the Diablo 4 release date isn’t to be missed – even if you don’t buy any skins.
