Yet another huge game from a major game developer is going to let players across competing game platforms play together.
Awesome, so glad we never stopped pressuring sony. In the end us gamers win!
For sure, I’m surprised at all the disagrees, as if they didn’t come out and say it you’d never realize it was happening. Hope more follow suit, nice to see I can finally play some games with my friends who own different consoles.
Just bought Diablo 2 + Expansion today. Have got D3 with both expansions and playes it thro four times. When I fired up Diablo 2 today, it just instantly was the better game. From movies, writing of dialogue, character development, loot / trading / item system + other gems / runes, overall gameplay, to graphics style and grit etc. Going to have more fun than I had with D3 ever this weekend :)
I hope one of the multiple diablo projects in the works is a modern d2 remaster, hopefully significantly better than the Starcraft remaster
For me this would be an example of why cross-play is great. I am not into Fortnite. However, I do love me a good smash session with friends on Diablo. I bought it on Xbox and several friends have it on Xbox and even to this day we play online together. My nephew has it on his PS4 and if cross-play comes there I can add him to the list of possible gamers and play with him. I also have Switch but wasn't going to buy it again and start over but, this may change my mind especially if it comes with cross-progression. That means I can play on the run with friends on other systems and play it on Xbox when I am at home. I am actually excited seeing this cross-play become a reality.
yeah i've said it for a long time now, games like Diablo, For Honor, Overwatch, etc... many years from now will benefit from this
We definitely need more dungeon crawlers type games like Diablo. Love these style of games. Will be great if Blizzard can add crossplay across all consoles, hopefully Sony allows it to happen on their end.
i’d love that. Diablo 3 was one of my favourite dungeon crawlers of all time. Crossplay for that one would surely mean Blizzard is thinking about crossplay for something like overwatch too. I love the direction the industry is going with crossplay. One of my dreams since online console gaming really started in the early 2000s (i know the dreamcast and even earlier consoles had it but it wasn’t used a lot until the likes of Xbox Live) Was having crossplay. Great time to be a gamer and see all the changes in the industry
I mean this is great and all but who really cares if a 2012 game (2014 ps4) has cross play.
Quite a few people, apparently.
A loud vocal minority.
Why does it bother you though? You're not forced in any shape or form to partake.
Why do gamers try to suppress other gamers? It's bonkers.
A small, solid group of open-minded gamers, you mean. People need to quit trying to frame cross play as a bad thing.
diablo games are very well crafted, they don't lose their appeal quickly and usually stand the test of time.
Enough gamers care to cause change
Uhh...Diable 3 is still getting patch and supported till this day. Not bad for a 2012 game huh?
I mean your comment is great and all but who really cares
Did anyone read the article?? It's not officialy confirmed in any way.
it is confirmed that it is happening, its just the "when" is not confirmed yet.
It's not confirmed. This is exactly how fake rumors are made. He could've simply said 'Yes, we are working on it.' Why so cryptic then?
Blizzard has denied they are working on diablo 3 crossplay now, maybe they'll add it for diablo4 so the industry can finally catch up to where it should be.
You are right. They are still in the process of talking with the big 3. Things could fall out at anytime. Let wait and see first.
god this game is still relevant ? how many people are even still on this dinosaur? i really dont mean this in any negative way, im genuinely curious as i havent played this game in AGES!
People still play Diablo 2 as well. And yeah, D3 is still relevant. It has a pretty strong user base.
well d2 is a classic and was always universally praised ... d3 was for the entirety of the time i played it very divisive ... love how i was asking a genuine question since i havent played the game in ages and was considering picking it up again and get downvotes ... jesus this website is so cancerous :/
Blizzard can't do much nowadays without being divisive. Doesn't mean their games don't have strong player bases.
*calls game Dinosaur, suggests it's no longer relevant, defends an even older iteration of the game* I mean..... You do seem pretty negative about it to me. Ijs
Pisses in the wind, wonders why he got wet
God this comment can really be read as a genuine question? How many people read your comment and DIDN'T find it negative? You got down voted for obvious reasons dude. Calling the game old and irrelevant in a smart-ass way in a thread that only people interested in the game would be present was just asking for it. Then you go and call the site cancerous (this site is totally cancerous, i agree) when you only have 3 disagrees. Wait til you state an indisputable fact and get a couple dozen downies. I actually plan on playing it again soon. I quit way before the necro launched.
I think they need something new to get back players on this game.
HOW DARE YOU BLIZZARD ... How dare you allow cross-play; this is so BAD for the industry. Cross-play should be BANNED!! Says fanboys.
Nobody said that.
now that Sony is allowing it, let the onslaught of crossplay games begin, fun times ahead.
I'd be more interested in Overwatch if anything.
Still don't care.
Yes!! I would love to have access to all my Diablo characters on PC, PS4, and soon, Switch!! I doubt that will happen with the console exclusive skins...
Blizzard - “While we love the idea of bringing our players together across platforms, we do not have any plans to implement cross-platform gameplay for Diablo at this time,” It's not happening.
*Re-installs Diablo 3 in preparation *
