They’ve been called many things over the years. Isometric RPGs, hack’n’slash RPGs, ARPGs, Diablo clones. But one thing is certain: They wouldn’t exist if Diablo didn’t come out in 1996. Diablo and its sequels spawned a whole catalog of isometric action RPGs.
Former Diablo III game director Jay Wilson has left Blizzard to pursue a career in writing, the developer announced on Twitter. You may remember him as the person who privately talked smack about the creator of Diablo.
Fabricator Djinn has been working on this Diablo III outfit for years now, and the result looks like it was definitely worth the wait/effort.
Diablo III’s patch 2.4.1 is now live, with Season 6 starting on Friday, and that means a lot of new items to loot! This time it’s all about cosmetic wings, pets and various transmog items.
His Majesty King Leoric of Khanduras was already a decently badass-looking boss in Diablo III, especially considering his lowly status as the game’s first unique boss. Well, here, he’s on a whole other level.
Players couldn’t log into games like World of Warcraft and Diablo III for several hours last night thanks to a series of DDoS attacks that flooded Blizzard’s servers, the developer said. Blizzard says they’ve since thwarted the problem, though some login issues could linger this morning.

Turns out, it’s never too late to do the right thing.
Boosting a character got a lot easier in Diablo III since the introduction of Paragon levels and Seasons, and it always was quick playing as a level 1 character in an otherwise max level party of four. Still, reaching the non-Paragon level cap in 33 seconds is still pretty impressive.
This is how history was made.
Diablo II just got its first patch since 2011 (October 27, to be exact). It’s not a content patch, but it helps ensure that the game can run on current platforms. How cool is that?
Well, that’s certainly a skin that wouldn’t work in Diablo III, but is completely fine in the casual environment of Heroes of the Storm. Act III’s “Lord of Sin” from Diablo III now has a slam dunk-ready alternate, called... Azmodunk!
In honor of an artist who worked on World of Warcraft and Diablo, and who passed away two years ago, Diablo devs secretly snuck a mini-event into Diablo III. It’s a special version of the famous Cow level and players found it pretty quickly.

Duriel, with his tiny-ass lair, slow-down aura and incredibly dangerous attacks, is an annoying Diablo II boss to fight. Now, thanks to this piece of fanart, he’s also terrifying to look at. Yay!
The real endgame of Diablo III starts in Adventure Mode, when our character finally finds one or two powerful items, and begins its journey to collect all the pieces required to clear everything on the highest difficulty levels in no time. The road to get there is bumpy, but our small guide might help a bit.
You might think that there’s no “wrong” way to play a game like Diablo III. This is incorrect. Somehow, I figured out how to pull it off.
