Diablo 4 has finally been announced at Blizzcon 2019. Not only have we been waiting for this for so long, it also looks amazing. By the look of things it is everything we wanted Diablo 3 to be, and then some. This is indeed a great announcement, even if we have to wait a while for the game.
Three classes is presented at this time: The Barbarian, the Sorceress and the Druid. We will probably see a ranged class as well and perhaps the Necromancer as well. This would tie well in with the homage to the Diablo 2 legacy this iteration of Diablo seem to do a lot.
Game play is fluid and looks amazing from the live streams and the demo. Character customization is returning to the Diablo 2 style with a mix of talent tree's similar to Path of Exiles (but much more manageable). Rune words are back and a wide range of items where they add a new level called Mythical on top of legendaries.
The world is huge and based on an open world with random generated dungeons in the hundreds. Massive world events are mixed with social spaces for trading and even the long awaited PVP zones.
It is indeed good news, but unfortunately it looks like it will be a few years at least before we can get our hands on it. I am fine with that and I look forward to follow the development to see how this very promising Diablo 4 will turn out.
It is more than 20 years since I started my Diablo journey and I am happy to add some extra years to that based on what I have seen so far.
