Diablo 4
« on: November 01, 2019, 02:14:03 PM »
I don't know who else watched the opening ceremony of BlizzCon, but  Diablo 4 was announced with a cinematic trailer and a gameplay trailer! There's even a playable demo at BlizzCon!

They announced "the first 3" playable characters - Barbarian, Sorceress and Druid! The game looks more like D2, but with the fluid combat of D3. It's much darker and Gothic looking.

I'm wicked hyped for this!!

The first non shit Diablo news in years. Shame it will take at least 3 years to release and not be as fun as it should be for the first 6 months based on past form

What did they think of it?

He liked it a lot. Says it leans way harder into Diablo 2 than Diablo 3.

Specific notes:
- Classes are not gender locked
- There is some character customization (choose a face & color)
- Dodging mechanic feels solid and fun
- They only had barbarian, sorceress, and druid so far
- He played druid, said it's like a barbarian with spells and pets and you dynamically shapeshift during attacks - like start off with a wolf melee attack and shift into a bear move in the middle
- He joined in killing some world event boss and said it was an awesome fight. The boss was destroying entire groups of players. (aside: yes, it's more MMO-y than previous Diablos, but you can play solo)


Now just have to wait another... 3... or 4... years.

I watched some gameplay and listened to one of the dev panels. Looks great, lots of interesting bits.
