There were rumors that at BlizzCon 2019, Blizzard would finally take the wraps off of Diablo IV, a game that many hoped would be announced last year but sadly was not. The rumors were true because Diablo IV has been officially announced at the developer’s annual gaming con.
According to the rumors we heard, Blizzard would be returning to its dark horror roots with Diablo IV and it would have a darker and grittier look. It looks like Blizzard has done just that. While Diablo 3 was well-received, many did not seem to like the cartoony look that the game had, and it was missing the darker tones from the original Diablo and Diablo 2.
In Diablo IV, the new main villain is Lilith, the Daughter of Hatred. We’re not sure if we will encounter Diablo again this time around, but it looks like Blizzard is setting Lilith up to be the main villain of the game. Blizzard also announced three playable classes: barbarian, mage, and druid. There will probably be more that will be revealed later on after the main news has sunk in.
We don’t know when the game will be announced but don’t expect it anytime soon as it will most likely be released in 2020 at the earliest. It will be launched for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
