Diablo 4: Druid, Barbarian, And Sorceress Featured In Gameplay Trailer
Hell is coming. Watch three classes in action in Diablo IV
BlizzCon 2019 kicked off with the official reveal of Diablo 4, the upcoming entry in the long-time RPG franchise. While we got to see a lengthy cinematic trailer, a gameplay trailer soon followed that showed three classic classes in action: Barbarian, Sorceress, and Druid.
All three classes call back to Diablo II and the Lord of Destruction expansion pack. Barbarian looks to be a close-range melee class that can dual-wield axes and use a number of physical abilities, while Sorceress is a magic-based class that can combine spells to wreak havoc from long-range. And Druid separates itself from the pack with a spell to transform into a bear of sorts, attack from mid-range with some magic. You can see all this in the gameplay video below.
Diablo IV maintains the classic isometric action RPG formula, but adds more like multi-level terrain with verticality. The game also appears to sport a darker, more realistic looking art style, a slight departure from Diablo III's cartoon-ish vibe. DIablo IV is set decades after the events of Diablo III's Reaper of Souls expansion. The final shot of the trailer shows Lilith in-game, who seems to be the main villain this time around based on the cinematic trailer. There will be five classes in total, but the final two have not yet been announced.
The game world will be much larger than that of previous games, featuring five distinct but contiguous regions. To help you get around more quickly, you'll have access to a mount and even be able to use dismount abilities, letting Barbarians, for instance, leap off and perform an attack in one smooth motion.
