Diablo IV is the fourth installment of the iconic hack'n'slash series, developed by Blizzard Entertainment, the authors of the previous games in the series, as well as such titles as Overwatch, StarCraft II and Hearthstone.

Plot

The action takes place in the grim fantasy land known as the Sanctuary. Once again, it becomes the target of an invasion by the Burning Hells' army, which can only be confronted by heroes led by the players. The forces of evil are led by the demonic Lilith, who has returned to the world of mortals through a dark ritual after eons of exile.

Mechanics

The game was built on the foundations of the previous parts. Diablo 4 is a classic hack'n'slash, which means the events are observed from isometric view and the game focuses on exploring the world, collecting items, completing tasks and, above all, fighting hordes of enemies with a variety of weapons and special abilities.

Starting the game we choose between several character classes. Each of them has its own fighting style with unique skills. The sorceress manipulates the elements, e.g. by casting lightning, piercing enemies with ice spikes or bringing rain of burning meteorites. The barbarian, on the other hand, relies on physical strength and melee combat using a rich arsenal of weapons. The Druid, on the other hand, is able to turn themselves into a bear and werewolf, and is accompanied by forest animals in battle. In addition, the class has magical abilities associated with the forces of nature.

An important aspect of the game is the character progression system. Each class has a unique skill tree and the player can improve their character's combat capabilities through talents, ability points, runes and legendary loot.

The land we explore has a two-layer structure. The surface resembles an MMO game. It is a great online world with a fixed shape, across which large groups of players can move around. There are also PvP zones for fighting other players. On the other side, dungeons have the form of small raids, i.e. closed worlds for a party of several players, which are generated randomly.

Technical aspects

The game offers dark atmosphere, full of brutality and elements directly from horrors. The devs abandoned the cartoonish style of the third installment and based their work on the atmosphere of Diablo II.

The game does not offer an offline mode. The MMORPG-like design of the game world makes it necessary to have a permanent Internet connection even when playing solo.

"Hell, it's about time," said Findlay in the StarCraft 2 trailer, and he could say it again. It's possible that Diablo 4 will be the kind of hack'n'slash we've always dreamed of, and will allow us to forgive the company all the recent mishaps. Or not.
