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.
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.
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.
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.
Only a few days have passed since Season 5 started (as part of patch 2.4) in Diablo III’s PC version, and some players are already grinding on difficulty levels that most of us will never reach.
I thought I was done playing Diablo III, a game I happily zipped through as a demon hunter when it came out on PS4. I played with friends, cleared the story, hit level 70, barely understood what Adventure Mode and Paragon Points were and put it down. That was more than a year ago.
Diablo III changed a lot over the years. The expansion and the later patches added a lot more content to the game, and these changes might confuse players who stopped playing around Reaper of Souls or before, but want to come back to see what’s new.
Diablo III’s long awaited patch 2.4 is now live both in the US and in the EU. It’s quite a big update with new zones, items, game mechanics and small tweaks. The game feels a lot different if you haven’t played in months.
Legion will introduce a new type of creature to World of Warcraft that might be familiar from Diablo III. It’s the Treasure Goblin, or as he’s known here, Treasure Demon.
A big part of Diablo III is playing with other people, whether it’s friends or strangers. Many consoles owners have given up on strangers, though, thanks to cheaters doing a fantastic job of making the game tough to enjoy.
Adventures in Diablo III didn’t end with patch 2.3. There’s a new, similarly large content patch coming soon with enough new things packed in to make it worth going back and gain a few more Paragon levels. One of the most exciting things will be a feature called set dungeons.
Well this is how perma-death and Hardcore mode works in Diablo III. You’re not safe, even if you’re a famous electronic music producer with a very high ranked Demon Hunter. Whether it’s lag or bad luck, if your character dies, it’s gone forever.
With the new items and gameplay changes of Diablo III’s superb 2.3 patch, one of the coolest builds of old times, the Archon, is back and got stronger for Season 4.
Diablo III’s latest patch is now live, and among other things, it introduced four new difficulty levels to the game. While Torment VI wasn’t that tough, the new hardest setting, Torment X, when played properly, makes the game look like a bullet hell shmup instead of a hack and slash RPG.
