At BlizzCon 2021, Blizzard unveiled the Rogue, the fourth character class in the game. The Rogue trailer shows that the Rogue is quick and deadly in several short gameplay clips that accompany a comprehensive cinematic.
After BlizzCon 2019, GameInformer brought a lot of Diablo 4 gameplay for us to take a closer look at. Familiar in the best possible way, the video showcased Diablo 4’s return to the intense Gothic game world and that addictive gameplay loop that made the game famous.
Below you can see the video showing the game’s three classes in action. Barbarian, Sorceress, and Druid. All in all, about an hour of gameplay, which is quite impressive. The game is still a while away, so it will probably be appreciated.
As a true starting point, Diablo 4 was officially announced at Blizzcon 2019. We saw both the cinematic announcement story and the first gameplay trailer.
For those who have not followed the in-game events, “Diablo 4” takes place after “Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls”.
At this point, the gates of Heaven are closed after the angel of death, Malthael, destroys most of the Sanctuary. Lilith, daughter of Mephistopheles and mother of mankind, is released from her prison because Heaven is unaware of the events in the Sanctuary.
In an interview with AusGamers, Diablo 4 game director Luis Barriga and art director John Mueller offer insight into the team’s big ambitions for Diablo 4 and its expansion. With Lilith functioning more as the main villain than Diablo, Mueller suggests that there may ultimately be more characters and stories to be told in the expansion.
“Diablo IV is like the first chapter of a book. We want to tell a big story, hopefully for a long time. Treating this film like the first chapter of a book and treating Lilith as an important character in this story makes us feel very good knowing that other characters may return in the future. Or maybe there will be new characters that we have never seen before.
The two also touched on how big the world of Sanctuary will be.
They said, “You can go from the northernmost tip of Scosglen, which you saw in the demo, to the arid steppes, to the desert of Kejhistan. And there are no loading screens at all. It is completely seamless. This is how much detail has been put into the game.
We also know that Diablo 4 is moving away from the conversation pane of Diablo 3. Instead, a mix of tool-generated and choreographed camera angles should improve both simple and complex NPC interactions. Diablo 4 also uses real-time cutscenes during key story moments in the game, and the transition from player control to gameplay is more seamless.
