44. Re: No PvP in Diablo III Launch Mar 10, 2012, 11:41 Prez

So there's no offline singleplayer because it's a multiplayer game, but we're going to ship it without a fundamental multiplayer element.

Pretty sure it still has coop.

The coop will still ship with the game according to the press release. Having never played Diablo in PvP, I don't know how important it is relative to Coop, but I know from my Guild Wars days (a game that Blizzard seems to be trying to emulate with D3 given the decisions they have been making), the mp community in that game was far more interested in the PvP than the PvE. IIRC, most only bothered with the PvE because they needed to farm for the best equipment (a by-product of MMO design which I detest to my core).

I don't really care as it pertains to D3; it has been off my radar since it has become apparent it is actually going to be Diablo Online, but this decision is a bit jarring for a Blizzard fan in general. This is something they have steadfastly refused to do in the past; time will tell if it marks a change for the worse or the better for Blizzard.
