A French publication, Actu Gaming, has published a new report that the long-rumored Diablo 2 remaster is currently in development. The editor of the outlet is the same person that accurately gave early information about Diablo 4, Overwatch 2, and Shadowlands prior to Blizzcon 2019.
According to the report, Activision has tasked Vicarious Visions with handling the development of Diablo 2 Remastered. This is the same studio that did Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy back in 2017. However, this report doesn’t hold a lot of water as a while back is was made clear through an interview with Gamespot that the creators of Diablo 2 had lost not only the original source code but just about every asset.
In that interview Diablo creator, Erich Schaefer said,
“It's all gone. We were supposed to have a backup but neglected it. We spent a day or two in sheer panic. It would make it very difficult for Blizzard to do a...
According to a recent blog post by David Kim, some major changes are coming to Diablo 4, and the are apparently influenced by the Diablo community. It looks like Blizzard actually paid attention to player feedback.
“Adding depth and customization to your character through itemization is incredibly valuable and important to the game. This has been the most-discussed topic since we revealed Diablo 4. To be clear-we believe Diablo 4 itemization should be deep and rewarding and that’s one of our highest priorities.”
Ancient Items Will Be Missing From Diablo IV
Ancient items will be removed in Diablo 4 and, as a replacement, we will have a “Legendary consumable.” This new kind of item will let us add a Legendary affix on items with no Legendary affix. As many said, in Diablo 3 the Legendary items we’re simply an end game run for more power. Items will have more affixes available...
It has been confirmed by game designer Angela Del Priore at Blizzcon 2019 that Diablo IV will be an online-only game. This comes as a surprise for the community, but keep in mind that you’re still able to play alone on dungeons or missions. If you’ve played Diablo 3 on PC, then this isn't really breaking news as the last Diablo installment required an internet connection to run, whenever you play multiplayer or single player.
Now, to be honest, this is a common requirement for every Blizzard game such as StarCraft, Overwatch, World of Warcraft, and Overwatch.
Even if Diablo 4 takes a lot from Diablo 2, this is one of the new features that the game will take from Diablo 3. The game will run on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and there will be no exception when talking about the internet connection required. Diablo 4 was announced at Blizzcon 2019 and at the moment...
Diablo 4 seems like it will revive every detail that made the Diablo Series popular. Speaking about loved features, we can’t ignore the customization system. Luis Barriga declared at BlizzCon that a lot of missing features from Diablo 3 will be introduced in Diablo 4. Now, if I am honest, Diablo 4 is the true sequel to Diablo 2, the main thing being the symbols and all the blood which conquers every part of the screen.
Talents, skill ranks, and beloved rune words, this is the customization that won our hearts and made us spend a lot of time in Diablo’s world. This will allow us to play the build we desire, without being forced to go a specific way. I don't blame you if you've forgotten about Rune words since the Lord of Destruction expansion, back in the days where Diablo 2 was fresh out of the box. Just a reminder: if you combine runes you could enchant...
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...
After Blizzard nearly knocked the world off its axis at BlizzCon
2018 by announcing the mobile-only Diablo Immortal and leaving us in the dark
about Diablo 4, Blizzcon 2019 could offer the relief we’ve all be waiting for.
A new book called “The Art of Diablo” is set to launch on November 3rd, and an
advertisement for that book in a German magazine Game Star, hints at Diablo
four with the following phrase:
“contains artwork from “Diablo 1, Diablo 2, Diablo 3, and
Adding additional hype to what could be shurugged off as a
typo is the fact that the book is apparently co-authored by senior Blizzard
writer Robert Brooks. And, a recent report from Kotaku indicates that insiders
have said that Blizzard is planning to announce Diablo 4 at Blizzcon 2019.
This is certainly good news considering we’ve been waiting for Diablo 4 for several years and we honestly have more hope than ever that we’ll see it sooner than later. Blizzcon...
