How Diablo IV Will Differ From Diablo III, According To Blizzard
This year’s BlizzCon brought about the announcement that many fans had been looking forward to. Diablo IV was officially revealed with an incredibly beautiful (and dark) trailer, and since we now know the game is actually happening, the devs have been diving a bit more into the details regarding the highly anticipated title.
During a recent interview with AusGamers, game director Luis Barriga and art director John Mueller discussed the upcoming Diablo IV. “We have those moments where we play with the perspective a little bit to either show you a landmark or a vista and stuff like that,” Barriga said. “And then when it comes to a World Boss, we zoom out the camera out quite a distance to put you in the same space with 12 other players. That will be rare in the live game, but we included it in the demo to ensure everyone got to see it.”
When it comes to how Diablo IV differs from its predecessor, Mueller had this to offer: “We’ve added a lot of animation technology. Blending animation and having stop animations and having different animations make the movement feel very different than Diablo III. It’s all increasing the resolution. And in action it makes the movement but feel more fluid, with stuff like character turns looking better than ever.”
Diablo IV is currently in development with no release date as of yet. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
