Blizzard Announces Diablo IV at BlizzCon 2019 By Sean Carey, 01 Nov 2019 CommentsAfter months of leaks and rumours, Diablo IV was officially announced at BlizzCon 2019 along with cinematic and gameplay trailers. Game director Luis Barriga described the game as going back to the series' darker roots where "every character, every monster and every faction will have a sense of place."Barriga continued, "With Diablo 4 we want to put the world of Sanctuary front and centre. Drowned undead will emerge from the coastline, brutal Goatmen that come from the hills above us" and as players go deeper into the depths below they will find a "truly dark, gothic and medieval version of Hell." Players will also be able to group up, trade with one another and battle it out in PvP zones. Diablo IV's first three classes Barbarian, Sorceress and Druid. Players will, of course, be able to build and customise their own character builds with skill trees and abilities. As reported by IGN, Blizzard describes the first classes as: The Barbarian, 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 hearkens back to their Diablo II roots and 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.The Druid is a 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.There's been no mention of a release date yet, all we know is that Diablo IV is in development and will come to Xbox One, PS4 and PC.Announcement View comments Written by Sean CareyHey everyone!
