Diablo III is the latest game in the Diablo trilogy.
Two decades have passed since the demonic lords, Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, set out across the world of Sanctuary on a vicious rampage, twisting humanity to their unholy will. Yet for those who battled the Prime Evils, the memory fades slowly.
When Deckard Cain returns to the ruins of Tristram Cathedral seeking clues to defeat new stirrings of evil, a fiery harbinger of doom falls from the heavens, striking the very ground where Diablo once entered the world. This fire from the sky reawakens ancient evils and calls the heroes of Sanctuary to defend the mortal world against the rising powers of the Burning Hells once again.
Diablo III will have Havok Physics and destructible environments that are damaged in game. For example, you can destroy a few rickety planks to cause a whole stone wall crashing down on some ghouls. (DirectX 10 not required) Every monster has 35 death animations.
Remember Diablo II Co-op? As in Diablo II, multiplayer is made possible by Battle.net, and includes drop in, drop out co-op (and even more baal runs).
An enhanced quest system, a random level generator, and a random encounter generator are slated for use in order to ensure the game provides different experiences when replayed. That's right, no more map rotation. This is the real deal. Overall, the game will include both static (towns?) and randomly generated levels.
A new inventory system similar to World of Warcraft will be implemented rather than the system of previous games where differently-sized items take up different amounts of space in the inventory. Two new armor pieces will be available: the shoulder plate, and the leggings.
Gold can be picked up merely by touching it, rather than having to manually pick it up, and in order to speed gameplay up, enemies now drop red orbs that contain health, therefore replacing the potion bar with a skill bar to use skills quickly and effectively.
There will only be 5 character classes in Diablo III.
Huge, hulking warriors, the Barbarians are the tanks of the game. Their ability to absorb damage and dual wield weapons is unparalleled.
That's right, it's WIZARD now, not sorcerer or sorceress. Wizards are the offensive spellcasters of Diablo. They specialize in magics of the elements; Fire, Lighting, Ice.
The Witch Doctor is a support spellcaster. He is basically the Necromancer, with his poison and curse attacks. He can summon monsters to fight alongside or as cannon fodder.
Monks specialise in close-quarters combat. Aggresive skills are the highlight of this class. Also contains awesome skills like flying palms of doom.
The Demon Hunter
Your standard ranged hero, the Demon Hunter wields crossbows with enchanted bolts, throwing weapons, grenades and more.
DIABLO 3 WILL HAVE PVP. 3V3 ARENAS, CUSTOM-DESIGNED BY BLIZZARD.
