Ironicly a day or so before the announcement of D4 I believe Blizzard issues some sort of apology over the whole Heartstone incident.


FYI that's not irony - it's a PR move (even if it weren't a pr move it still wouldn't be irony btw)

Anyway, strawberry float blizzard.

They might just be showing the new ones,, or most likely there's more coming later as DLC.

I''m guessing the three in the trailer are something like Witch, Warrior and Shaman (love that bear transformation).


They confirmed there are five characters in total. (Or at least that's what someone watching the stream told me.)

Yea cheers for that...

Anyway if I received it as a gift I'd probably give it a go. But realistically I still don't think I could play it regularly. It's a damn shame :(

Apparently there's actual character customisation too now.

Yup. Can second-hand confirm that as well.

It's going to be always online and a shared world – you can play solo but you cannot play offline. There will be PvP zones.

Some kindly soul recorded a chunk of the D4 reveal stream.

The irony is that all of those poor staff members on stage are probably completely in agreement with what they're saying and just trying to do their jobs.

I would like to take a political stand and not get this game but I'm a whore for Diablo. A dirty, need whore for that sweet loot. Plus pretty much everything I own, wear and the device I'm typing this on now is probably the result of similar injustice so bring on that new Druid class.

Agreed, I'd say far worse is probably more accurate than similar.

Looks quite similar to D3, I wonder if it's running on a modified D3 engine.

Looks like it's in a fairly well developed state but I guess it could still take ages to get through testing.

Didn't Diablo 3 take something like eight years from announcement to release?

Apparently it'll be a regular in-game AH, like in WoW, and not a real money AH.

Ben Reeves joins Jeff Cork and Leo Vader for a look at the first and only world boss we've seen from Diablo IV, where we banded together with a group of Blizzard devs to all get one-shotted by Ashava at once. For more on Diablo IV, including this gameplay without commentary, head to http://gameinformer.com/blizzard
