"At BlizzCon, I had a chance to chat with Diablo IV lead systems designer David Kim and lead lighting artist Sean Murphy about the new game."
That’s an easy one; one has “3” and the other has “4”!!!! No?!? Ok I’ll see myself out. ;)
actually one has III and the other has IV ;)
No 1 - it's online only. Fail.
So was Diablo III and it sold very well. Fail for you who can’t enjoy a game that needs a connection. I’ve had Diablo III since it came out and it still plays just fine, thank you for asking.
You can play D3 without a connection. Online optional for consoles. PC Diablo maybe?
Yikes, someone defending an always online game lol.
Yes on pc you need a connection and it sold extremely well on pc. The online is to control hacks and to keep the game alive with new content and updates. Plus with the monetized marketplace to keep cheats out. If people can get past the whole notion of being online there are indeed a ton of benefits.
It's going to be a an MT filled live service with the meatheads at blizzard in control of your account?
Damnit. Beat me to it.
The decision to go live service direction let me down in a big way.
number one: it will have DLC and loot boxes
*Mr Krabs: money!*
Microtransactions. That's the main difference.
Diablo IV will have always-online and microtransactions. Two garbage features. Diablo III doesn't. That alone makes D3 a better game.
