Been waiting YEARS for a new Diablo game, though admittedly, not as long as we waited between Diablo 2 and 3. That being said, Diablo IV is long overdue and the gameplay and cinematic trailers below only has us more hyped for what’s to come. Blizzard may have outdone themselves.
Diablo IV takes place many years after the events of Diablo III, after millions have been slaughtered by the actions of the High Heavens and Burning Hells alike. In the vacuum of power, a legendary name resurfaces.
Diablo IV is being developed using modern technology that pushes the franchise to dark, new depths. This technology is at the heart of everything players will see, hear, and feel — delivering much higher fidelity and a more engrossing experience. It opens up countless possibilities for the Diablo series, from smooth character animations, such as the Druid’s fluid shapeshifting, to the seamless, vast overworld players will travel across in search of the next loot-filled underground dungeon. Ultimately, Diablo IV will ground players in a grittier and deadlier world.
No word yet on the release date, but we’ll be there.
