What they say

According to IGN journalists, the new Blizzard projectwill please both fans of Diablo 2 and gamers who liked Diablo 3. The developers decided to return to the classic dark style, while filling the game with new elements.

At the stand, visitors have access to a 20-minute"demo" of Diablo 4 with playable barbarian, druid and sorceress. Heroes are distinguished by a set of active skills, as well as passive skills. For example, a barbarian carries two pairs of weapons with him at once, and turns into a bear or a werewolf when super attacks are activated.

Now, while exploring or completing a quest, you can stumble upon another adventurer and continue together or engage in battle with him if you want. In addition, public events will take place in the world of Diablo 4. For example, a huge boss may appear at a location, which players will try to destroy in the allotted time.
