Blizzard at this year's BlizzCon 2019 in Anaheim, California formally announced Diablo IV to the world, building on the 2012-released Diablo III as promised, after the company announced a refocus on its existing franchises. According to Blizzard, the game's premise stands as "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."

Blizzard claimed Diablo IV would have darker, grittier overtones such as in the earlier entries in the franchise, a style that was left somewhat in the background for Diablo III. There will be more blood, there will be more gore, and for now, three classes have been announced that will be your avatars in partaking in violence on Diablo IV: the barbarian, sorceress, and druid. Blizzard has also said some words regarding a technological push in the game, claiming that "This technology is at the heart of everything players will see, hear, and feel — delivering much higher fidelity and a more engrossing experience." No details on what exactly this meant were shared by the company, though. Chek out the reveal and gameplay trailers after the break.

Dunno if i am all that bothered tbh about from what D3 turned out to be, now you have all the current sh*t going on. If they released it tomorrow i would not bother with it.

Will have to see how things are before i care about one of their games again.

Is this because their the loss they are currently seeing ?, haha serves right with mobile crap and all.

Damn, the game director said the game is not coming out soon, and that it's not even Blizzard's "soon".

Took a look at the panel and a stream, the game looks exactly what D3 should have been.
Skill system is better, runewords are back, sets are no longer be all end all, like in D3. And there are some mmo elements in it.

The graphics looks outdated. The gameplay and game mechanics look outdated. I'm glad Dark souls happened or we wouldn't get a proper evolution of the action RPG genre.

Played all Diablo games except Diablo 3 and I'm not all that hyped inti D4... I spent so many hours on D2 LOD and finished the game using all characters multiple times...had fun with multiplayer too... I wish they'd remake that game...

Irrespective of how you feel about Blizzard after the past few months, it is a bit alarming that all they showed off were sequels. I guess Overwatch paid the bills well enough that they'll wait until that goes stale too to actually try something exciting. People who remembered Diablo I and II fondly from release are now approaching grandparent age. I would hope that they would work on putting out something that isn't online multiplayer and something that isn't a sequel to my dad's cohort of games.

Who asked for this? I know I didn't. There are enough good clones that are so similar in gameplay, you'd think why you'd want to play this.

I personally prefered D2 for mods and the story (also able to play offline or local co-op), mechanically wise I mostly liked D3 for streamlining to reduce clicking and have more satisfying combat. I don't think they'll do anything new to wow most people that have played RPGs for a good chunk of their life.

I'll admit I'm not a hardcore hack and slash player, I don't participate in Seasons and what-not. And something like PoE might be too much for me, while I can just drop into D3 anytime and have fun.

I can't wait for them to add some sort of way to extort money from players.

Good trailers always accompanied the disappointing graphics in the game,
It's a good idea that they don't think of paying after hours of playing, but it still comes with an extra charge. And it will be an 18+ game given the violence. Fixed view bothers me the most! I much rather play Sacred 2 with bugs.
