Diablo 4 Mounts: Unlock, Customize, Increase Speed

Since 2019, Blizzard has shown off mounts in Diablo 4, allowing players to traverse the huge open regions of Sanctuary with speed. But how do you unlock the mounts feature in Diablo 4, and can you customize your steed?

This article explains how you can unlock/get mounts in Diablo 4 alongside the customization options available to players, so let's mount up and get started.

Update on 28 March 2023: We've updated this article with the latest Diablo 4 mounts information. Safe travels through Sanctuary!

The Diablo 4 Open Beta has now ended and we look towards the game's full launch on 6 June 2023, or 2 June for those with Early Access.

Please note: The Diablo 4 mounts information in this article is from Open Beta weekends and is subject to change at launch. As such, we will consistently update this article to bring you the latest possible information.

Sticking to the roads in Diablo 4 allows players to bypass many enemies as they ride toward their quest objectives or maybe to a farming spot! These horses can come in many forms, from undead horses to demonic mounts and more. 

You can get new Diablo 4 mounts in multiple ways in the open-world regions of Sanctuary. For example, slaying certain bosses, finding hidden areas, or even by completing puzzles within the world.

Mounts can be unlocked at level 36 once you complete a specific Act or quest. We will endeavor to update this article as soon as more information becomes available.

How To Increase Mount Speed in Diablo 4

At the time of writing, increasing mount speed in Diablo 4 is something of a mystery. Reports have suggested that you can collect different types of Horseshoes (Hoof Plate items) from various activities to increase the speed of your mounts, but nothing has been set in stone just yet.

Diablo 4 Mount Customization Options

Mounts in Diablo 4 can be equipped with various items that, for example, increase the stats of your steed, such as increased Armor for protection. You can also change or add to your mount's appearance, for example, by adding a new saddle, or trinkets, such as the head of a fallen enemy.

Diablo 4's mounts are more than just a faster way across Sanctuary. We suspect that mounts will form a central part of character customization in the future, and there will likely be a lot of new cosmetics added in future seasons.

While you wait for Diablo 4's Open Beta weekends to begin, check out the latest developer livestream update below.

So there you have everything we know so far about Diablo 4's mounts, how you can unlock them, customization options, increasing your steed's speed, and more. We will endeavor to update this article as soon as more information becomes available.
