Diablo III is the much anticipated sequel to Diablo II from Blizzard Entertainment. With tons of new and controversial features, along with 4-player co-op, Diablo III is set to divide or conquer gaggles of gamers when it launches in the future.
Continuing the tale from the first two games, players will choose their class and then battle across the world either solo or online with friends to defeat the evil that plagues the world of Sanctuary.
The Darkening of Tristram event for Diablo 3 is on the PTR for Blizzard's ARPG. We dove in head first to play the first few levels of the re-imagined Diablo 1 - and ran smack dab into the butcher. Watch the first 15 or so minutes of Diablo 1 in D3, and let us know what you think!
People were expecting something huge from Diablo at BlizzCon 2016. And while we got news of the Necromancer (it's awesome), and a Diablo 1 anniversary event (also awesome) we wanted more. We expected more. And it's that lack of a bigger expansion or sequel to Diablo 3 that makes us believe there's something bigger coming from Tristram.
Diablo 3's about to have a pretty big 2017 with the Diablo: Darkening of Tristram event going live in January, the Necromancer Character Pack later in 2017, and tons of new features being added as well. We caught up with Blizzard's Wyatt Cheng and Rob Foote to discuss all the new stuff coming to D3 and the future of Diablo as a franchise.
The Diablo team is getting ready to start up the 20th Anniversary panel at Blizzcon. We'll keep you posted on all that's said so hop through the jump and keep refreshing the page for the most up-to-date information straight out of Anaheim!
During BlizzCon 2016, it was revealed that the Necromancer hero class would be making his triumphant return to Diablo 3 in a forthcoming Character Pack (not an expansion) in 2017. Lucky for us, the male Necro was playable at the show, and we played through the 15 minute or so demo and took some of the class' old skill made anew for a spin.
