Diablo 4 preview: Hands-on with Blizzard's darker, dirtier sequel

From Games Radar: "There are no clean victories in Diablo," Diablo 4 executive producer and Blizzard co-founder Allen Adham tells us. "The world is not your typical clean world where the good guys always win and evil is always vanquished." He's not wrong: the demo we play is grungy with blood, pus and other assorted bodily fluids. Within the space of 20 minutes, we see a cursed young boy choke to death on his own vomit, the reanimated corpses of waterlogged humans pushing their faces through the mud and a Druid rip a rotting corpse in half like so much wet tissue paper. It may still have that distant, isometric camera keeping you above the action, but Diablo 4 wants to make you feel like you're right in the middle of the fray. "

But what about the sexual orientation of the demons and monsters? Or do we have to wait with baited breath for an official announcement reveal date like with Tracer from Overwatch?

Is that so important to you? Why is that the first thing that comes to your mind? Hmmm...

No, you don't get it. He actually brought sexual orientation into here "as a joke" as a right winger good boy, probably obsessed with "unorthodox sexualism". I just wonder why these people are so passive agressive about it... :D

People sure like to complain about stuff they claim not to care about. Pure distilled irony.

Druid gameplay was just so fucking ferocious and visceral, i really thought I would be Barb main but Druid more than took the cake for me.

And I love that they're adding outdoor world pvp and mounts as well as world bosses. All just amazing features. The closer this gets to being an MMO the happier i get lol

Sounds cool. A free Hong Kong sounds cooler.

A live service micro fest, it's cheap like WoW. Hopefully that Diablo 2 project gets more love.
