Diablo 4 features its fair share of monetisation, allowing players to purchase cosmetic items in an item Shop that refreshes its inventory weekly, alongside an upcoming Battle Pass and additional account upgrades like new mounts.
As you explore the world of Sanctuary throughout Diablo 4, you’ll come across plenty of armour that allows you to further personalise your character’s appearance at one of the game’s many Wardrobe locations.
Outside of what can be discovered in the world, though, Blizzard’s item Shop provides players with additional monetised cosmetics to help you to stand out from the crowd – so here’s everything you need to know about what’s available this week and how to get Platinum.
What is the Diablo 4 Shop? Monetisation explained
The Shop in Diablo 4 is something that will not be unfamiliar to most modern gamers, as it is filled with cosmetic armour transmogs that change the look of your character, along with mounts and account upgrades.
Items in the Shop can be purchased with a premium currency known as ‘Platinum’, which can be earned on through the currently unreleased Battle Pass, or alternatively, with real currency.
A point of contention from Diablo‘s history is how it handled the in-game Shop. Fans previously exploded on social media and message boards back in 2012 when Diablo 3 launched with an auction house that allowed players to buy items with real money. Oh, how times have changed.
In a previous press release following a livestream prior to Diablo 4’s launch, Blizzard devs stated that “building on top of the hundreds of armour and weapon styles you can unlock in the game, the Shop serves to offer you even more diverse cosmetic options.
Blizzard is adamant that none of the items on offer for purchase in Diablo 4’s item Shop offers any gameplay advantage – these are simply cosmetics items that can be used to don your chosen class with a new look.

How much does Platinum cost in Diablo 4?

What do we know about the Battle Pass in Diablo 4?
Diablo 4’s Battle Pass will feature both a free track and a paid premium track, which players can level up through and unlock various items and boosts. Diablo fans are no strangers to seasonal systems, as Diablo 3 has subsisted on its seasonally refreshed content for years now. Diablo 4 seems to be continuing this approach, while also giving us a much more traditional season pass.
As with the purchasable cosmetics, Blizzard has been quick to clear up any doubt that this fully-priced game will feature any pay-to-win purchases like Diablo Immortal. The free tiers that are available to everyone will have gameplay boosts, such as increasing your experience gains. Its premium tier, however, will only include cosmetic items.
The Battle Pass will combine a progression system for all players with a purely cosmetic paid system. While this still may not be ideal, at least they aren’t asking for a down payment on a new car just to level up your Barbarian.
So, that’s everything there is to know about monetisation in Diablo 4’s Shop. Be sure to check out our Diablo homepage for the latest news and guides, or visit our Diablo 4 Battle Pass page for a more in-depth breakdown of what we know about the upcoming feature.
