The leaks for BlizzCon 2019 continue. After Overwatch 2 was leaked by a training document, a new leak has emerged for Diablo 4 of Reddit. According to user PracticalBrush12, who’s leaked details about Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers in the past, Diablo 4 will look “dark, gritty and gross.”
Along with corpses strewn about, there will flesh caves, marshes, plagued cities and much more to traverse. Environments are apparently much bigger with mounts available for characters to ride and some interaction with the environment (like climbing a wall). Three classes that will be included are the Mage, Barbarian and Druid (who can transform into bear or werewolf). Four player co-op is also confirmed with some possibility for PvP from the start.
Overall, the game seems to be channeling Diablo 2 with Lilith resuming Diablo’s role (artwork for her was recently leaked). Skills like the Sorceress’ Charged Bolt are also included. You would think that there’s not much legitimacy to the report, despite the user’s history. However, Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel “ZhugeEX” Ahmad noted on Twitter that, “This lines up with everything I’ve heard about Diablo 4. The game is shaping up well and is definitely what fans would want out of the game. Takes what people loved about D2 style, improves on D3 combat.”
We won’t know for sure until its supposed reveal tomorrow at the BlizzCon Opening Ceremony so stay tuned. The ceremony starts at 11 AM PDT with BlizzCon 2019 taking place from November 1st to 3rd.
This lines up with everything I've heard about Diablo IV.
