After keeping fans of the series waiting, and a bit frustrated, Blizzard Entertainment has announced that they will be releasing Diablo IV for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The company did not announce when fans could expect the game to be released but they did provide both a cinematic reveal trailer, some gameplay footage, and plenty of details about what players can expect.
Diablo IV will deliver brutal combat, gruesome and varied monsters, legendary loot, and endless playability and progression. Players will find tons of adventure scattered across a land rooted in unique ecologies and inhabited by dangerous new foes. They’ll delve into randomized dungeons packed with unpredictable adversaries and unimaginable treasures. While continuing to fully support solo and coordinated party play, Diablo IV will also provide opportunities for groups of players to encounter each other in the same shared world, whether to tackle bigger challenges, or possibly even slaughter one another in player-versus-player combat.
So far three of Diablo IV‘s character classes have been revealed in the form of The Barbarian who is known for their unparalleled strength and brutal melee combat, utilizes a new and more powerful system in battle, Arsenal, which arms them with the ability to carry and rapidly switch between four different weapons at a time by assigning them to individual attacks, The Sorceress who shapes the elements to obliterate their foes by impaling them upon jagged spikes of ice, electrocuting them with bolts of lightning, or raining flaming meteors from the sky, and finally The Druid who is savage shapeshifter whose updated playstyle empowers them to fluidly transform between werewolf, werebear, and human form to unleash the raw power of nature’s fury on the forces of the Burning Hells.
