Just how many dungeons are there in Diablo 4? We know Diablo 4 is a huge game, with a massive world to explore. Dungeons litter that map, with many spread across each region. Here is everything we know about how many dungeons there are in Diablo 4, plus some information about their Nightmare Dungeon variants.

We have not yet gotten access to the full version of Diablo 4, and even if we had, travelling around the map and counting all of the dungeons would be a mammoth task. As such, we cannot say for certain just yet what the exact total of dungeons in the game is.

That said, we have some clues thanks to the Into the Endgame video posted on the Diablo YouTube channel. In this video, it is revealed that there will be over 120 dungeons in the full version of Diablo 4.

Players are going to have plenty to do when Diablo 4 launches, just to even put a dent in the total number of dungeons in the game. That said, there are even more changes that expand the dungeon-diving experience.

Nightmare Dungeons is a feature coming to Diablo 4 which shakes up the existing dungeons and give players reasons to keep coming back. Nightmare Dungeons are altered versions of the original dungeons, and to activate one you must use a Nightmare Sigil.

As the name might suggest, Nightmare Dungeons are much harder, with tougher enemies in greater numbers and even new objectives. They also have a system known as affixes, and affixes act as modifiers to the dungeon.

Affixes vary greatly in effect, one example given was the Hell Gate affix, which creates portals throughout the dungeon that pipe in enemies from different regions. The affixes, along with the steep increase in difficulty, will give dungeons even more replayability and challenge.

In order to enter a Nightmare Dungeon in Diablo 4, you need a Nightmare Sigil. Nightmare Sigils are acquired from high-level and end-game activities, so be sure to hold on to any you find.

Once you have a Nightmare Sigil, go to any dungeon you wish, and use the Sigil to transform it into the Nightmare variant. This gives players some degree of control over the dungeons and allows them to focus on the challenges they want to face.

That is everything we know about the number of dungeons in Diablo 4. For more on the game, check out our Diablo 4 transmog guide.
