Blizzard has officially announced the fourth part in its Diablo series. Diablo 4 will be an action isometric RPG, will have three classes, and its new “diablo” will be Lilith. The game will be darker and grittier than Diablo 3, and will have a similar style/tone to Diablo 2.
Basically, everything that was leaked a while ago has been confirmed. As we wrote in our previous article, Diablo 4 is going to look dark, gritty and gross. Locations will be toned down, infrequently laid with corpses, wasteland, grey-ish deserts, clut caves surrounded by flesh, rotten crypts, marshes and bogs, as well as plagued cities. These levels will be larger than Diablo 3’s levels.
Characters will now be able to ride horses (possibly other mounts) and there might be contextual interaction with environment. Blood splatters will also look more like blood and not splashed jam.
The three classes that the game will have are: Mage (uses fire, ice and lightning so far), Barbarian (swords, clubs, axes, kicks etc), and Druid (lightning, wind, and transforming into beasts).
There is currently no ETA on when the game will come out, however we’ll be sure to keep you posted. So make sure to enjoy the following trailers until we have more details to share about it!
