Diablo 4 Announcement Trailer #BlizzCon


A few points:
  • Still isometric
  • the Druid is back
  • Open world with randomized dungeons
  • Shared world coop (aka MMO-lite), take down those bosses in groups!
  • PvP (though not mandatory)
  • Mounts

It's like they are trying to make it into World of Warcraft.

The cinematic bits there seems... not up to the usual Blizzard standards. I mean, it was good but I've seen a lot better, and from Blizzard years ago.

Overall, I like the Druid coming back but not much else inspired me.

Just look at the Overwatch trailer, it is in much better quality.

This seemed.... blurry.

Maybe it's because it's just early or something. Hard to tell.

No, you are right, the cinematic bits seemed blurry. Not sure if they were going for some sort of style or if this is an early trailer that didn't have time to fully render.

Haven't tried Grim Dawn (need to), but PoE is becoming a real mess. Terrible leagues (latest was Tower Defense PoE), power creep, and continually nerfing builds that are actually fun to play.

Plus, bought by Tencent, so your money is going to a nation that thinks killing tens of thousands of Americans with fentanyl is a viable business opportunity.

So fuck PoE, and that's coming from someone with a ton of time and money invested. No more.

I almost bought Grim Dawn the other day when it was on sale, should've.

I installed COD Mobile the other day and saw it was published in part by TenCent, so I promptly uninstalled it.

Tencent also has a 5% stake in Activision-Blizzard, Ubisoft, Paradox Interactive and 40% in Epic Games. It's hard to avoid giving money to Tencent as a gamer.

Games like Grim Dawn and Torchlight II surpassed for Diablo III for me. I'd love to see Diablo IV reclaim the ARPG throne for Blizzard, but this trailer doesn't assure me that will happen. Too early to draw any conclusions, of course.

The stuff they detailed during the panel sounds very promising. Seems like they acknowledged what people missed about D2, how people played D3, and designed this one around that, along with pushing it forward in a more modern direction. I am stoked.

Also, the ending of the cinematic trailer was fucking awesome, y'all on crack.

You can't disentangle yourself completely, but Tencent bought 80% of Grinding Gear Games (maker of PoE). So, 5% may be a tolerable level of their shit for some, but 80% is pretty intolerable.

That's my take at least.

People are attacking Bliz, but many of the same people will happily continue to play LoL from the 100% Tencent owned Riot Games because of... reasons.... Go figure.

I'm not sure about Cash, but I know that Blizzard knows I have a cell phone.

Alright, if they insist on trying to push this MMO style, why not let us have limited character creation?

Not all of us want to play a black or overly buff barbarian.

Really 3 hair colors 3 faces 2 skin colors and 2 genders, keep it simple.


that being said, I'll keep a eye on it, I still played the hell out of diablo III.


I'm still sad they ditched the dark souls style diablo the were developing, I'd have died happy if that game actually saw the light of day, can you imagine loot in that kind of game?
