offers an information leak about Diablo 4
of BlizzCon 2019. This is all unconfirmed, though
notes that the source of this has proven reliable in the past,
giving them great confidence it is bona fide. Here's the rumor:
is actually going to look dark, gritty and gross - no more rainbow shiny
bullshit this time! Loactions are toned down, infrequently laid with corpses,
wasteland, greyish deserts, clut caves surrounded by flesh, rotten crypts,
marshes and bogs, plagued cities you name it. They are also seemingly much
bigger, maybe even open? Characters now are able to ride horses (possibly other
mounts), also there's contextual interaction with environment ? - climbing a
wall Lost Ark style. Blood splatters look more like blood and not splashed jam
So far i can confirm 3 classes: mage (uses fire, ice and lightning so far),
barbarian (swords, clubs, axes, kicks etc), and druid (lightning, wind, and
transforming into beasts - so far bear and werewolf!).
Possibly there will be PvP from the start?. 4 player coop is there for sure.
All this game seems to be is a W I N K to the Diablo 2 fans, Lilith being the
new diablo (she's covered in blood veil kinda), characters being shown sitting
at a campfire as character selection, nitty gritty dark style that 2 was praised
for, some skills also seem to be just taken from it and put in here (like
sorceress' charged bolt). I'm interested and hope they don't fuck this up. The
company is bad, but the game might not be this time.
2 points with "?" are just because it's not clear to me tbh... let's see what
they say at the conference
