Sony PS4 Reveal – Diablo III
If you’re like me and you haven’t had the time or the money to invest in a decent gaming PC, then I’m sure you have also felt the disappointment of missing out on awesome games like Diablo. But now, finally, Diablo III is coming to console! The PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, to be precise.
All of the PC upgrades that have been made to the game since its initial launch will be included, and a great deal of hard work and attention has been paid into getting the legendary game fitting just right on console. The interface, controls and camera are being completely overhauled and redeveloped, so that the traditional Diablo hack and slash combat, as well as loot collecting and dungeon crawling gameplay, will feel perfectly natural with a controller in your hands, not a mouse.
If you’re not particularly familiar with Diablo, then here’s a little background info. Diablo III is an action role-playing game, the third in the Diablo franchise so far, and features heavily on dungeon crawl and hack and slash elements as crucial parts of its gameplay. There are five character classes to choose from: Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor, and Wizard, and the game takes place twenty years after the events of Diablo II in Sanctuary, the dark fantasy world of the series.
As you traverse throughout this place, you will take part in fast-paced, action-oriented combat that requires as much tactical skill as it does brute strength. The deeper you go into this dark world, and the more swarms of monsters and difficult bosses you defeat, you will grow in both experience and skill, learning new abilities and finding new and powerful items along the way.
It is up to you, playing the role of the Hero, to fight back the demons of the Burning Hells, who have long awaited their chance to invade the realm of men. The Prime Evils, a covenant of demon lords, exiled their fellow demons the Lesser Evil to the human world of Sanctuary, bringing war and destruction in their wake. Despite brave heroes managing to slay the Prime Evils, your world is but a bitter shell of itself, scarred from fire and the demons’ influence, with the Worldstone destroyed. The ancient relic that had once kept Sanctuary protected against the armies of angels and demons is no more, leaving your world exposed to the ever growing danger that its absence has placed you in.
The great Lesser Evil demons that still live in the Burning Hells have not forgotten the world of Sanctuary, and see a chance to take it for themselves as it lies unprotected. Now, a star has fallen from the sky; a terrible dark omen that heralds in the End of Days. With no one the people of Sanctuary can turn to with their heroes long gone or dead, there can only be hope in the rise of a new champion…
