The forth part of the acclaimed series debuted on Blizzcon 2019, showing once again what Blizzard’s cinematic team can do.
It’s been a long time, but finally all the rumors are put to rest. Blizzard has officially announced Diablo 4. A follow up to the 2012 Diablo III is very dark, judging by the cinematic trailer.
Diablo IV takes place many years after the events of Diablo III, after millions have been slaughtered by the actions of the High Heavens and Burning Hells alike. In the vacuum of power, a legendary name resurfaces.
The CGI trailer looks absolutely stunning and it’s got some absolutely fantastical effects. It’s also incredibly bloody, so you might want to see it during day. For those of you more interested in gameplay, there’s also a very good gameplay trailer, showcasing very cool facial animation, beautiful environment design and colossal character design work. It’s a welcomed return to the dark roots of the series.
Here’s a little extract from the press release:
Diablo IV is being developed using modern technology that pushes the franchise to dark, new depths. This technology is at the heart of everything players will see, hear, and feel — delivering much higher fidelity and a more engrossing experience. It opens up countless possibilities for the Diablo series, from smooth character animations, such as the Druid’s fluid shapeshifting, to the seamless, vast overworld players will travel across in search of the next loot-filled underground dungeon. Ultimately, Diablo IV will ground players in a grittier and deadlier world.
