Diablo III has changed a lot over the years, dropping a much-loathed auction house and gaining all sorts of balance overhauls, enemies, and entire new areas.

Diablo III Player Reaches Level 1,000 Without Dying

But doing it on Hardcore difficulty, where your character's death is permanent, that's some next level insanity. Ukranian player Nokieka is the first in the world to do it. » 2/16/15 9:00am 2/16/15 9:00am

Diablo's Future? Definitely Not An MMO

Not so long ago, Blizzard voiced interest in taking Diablo to other genres post-Diablo III—up to and including an MMO.

Heads Up: Your New Last-Gen Game May Not Get DLC

Console transitions are weird, sometimes sloppy things, and the latest—from PS3/Xbox 360 to PS4/Xbox One—is no different. The newest wrinkle?

Diablo III's Endgame Dungeons Can Be Disappointingly Empty

Greater Rifts in Diablo III are unforgiving sometimes—not because they're hard, but because you have 15 minutes to kill a huge amount of monsters, even if the dungeon doesn't actually have that many of them.
