After announcing Diablo Immortal and Blizzcon 2018, many fans lost hope for the Diablo series. BlizzCon 2019, however, revealed that Diablo IV is in fact coming, and it looks just gorgeous. The event was marked by the one of a kind trailer that we’ve place above, which is honestly way scarier than many horror movies.
As strange as it might sound, the game seems more a sequel to Diablo 2 instead of a followup to Diablo 3, and if you played the game long enough, you know what we mean. Let’s start with Diablo 3’s detailed story and action scenes. The focus is on the “big action” as Tyrael return between his brothers. The story is great, the action is well placed, but that’s not the mark od the Diablo series we fell in love with. Diablo 4 is more of a sequel to Diablo 2 because of the huge quantities of blood you see in only one scene, how it’s spreading across the symbols, and the fear that runs through your spine as you go deeper into the story.
Another “connection point” is the presence of occult rituals and symbols, which means a lot more demons and creatures. These may seem unimportant, but the whole game started with demons, blood, and fear – all small details that we haven’t found in Diablo 3, and that’s disappointing.
The world itself looks more alive. Well, dead, but alive. The surroundings looks a lot better than in the previous and speaking out “there is no more hope” at least that’s the message I get after seeing it. At the moment we can only speak about the demo, but Diablo 4 has so much potential, especially seeing that the development team is coming back to their original ideas about a world dominated by darkness.
At the moment we can only pray that the boss fights will remain as hard as in the demo. I mean if you’re new to this type of game, well you will have a hard time doing all that they got and at the same time attack. The main antagonist is Lilith, powerful and evil Diablo 4 will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
