    After endless amounts of rumors, and "out of season April Fools jokes", Blizzard has finally lifted the curtain on their next Diablo title: Diablo IV. Announced during this year's Blizzcon, the reveal came with a 9-minute cinematic trailer and a gameplay trailer, showing three character classes: mage, druid, and barbarian. According to Blizzard, the game will take place years after the previous mainline entry, Diablo III, and will be a return to the franchise's "dark roots". The game has no release date, but it will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    Looks pretty cool in my opinion! Wish they'll port it to the Switch :D One thing that bugged me about D3 was the soundtrack, I loved the soundtrack on D2, hope they have something similar to D2 on this one...

    I wonder if they will just wait for the other consoles, too.

    I'm interested, but not holding any hope. Blizzard have not exactly garnered much trust from me when the entire market is saturated with monetisation at every level. I'm sure they'll find ways to do the same here.

    So boycotting until I'm proven wrong I guess.

    Courtesy of the online only thing I never did 3 despite many many many hours of 1 and 2.

    To that end I will believe it when I see it, and especially with Bethesda contracting the suck virus in recent times.

    I love me some Diabo. I hope the graphics will be further developed then in the trailer though.

    So far unimpressed, it looks like diablo 3 with the obvious mistakes corrected and a bunch of fanservice.

    Looks like a discount Path of Exile (and Path of Exile is free). The fact that they're using in-engine cutscenes also tells me that the game is being rushed in response to bad PR, and they've given up on trying to provide the kind of quality that Blizzard used to.
