Something I pointed out when we discussed Diablo 4's figurative and literal 'darkness' back in 2019 is that, although you can't see it in the official gameplay trailers, holding the cursor over an enemy highlights them with a red glow, and hitting them makes them glow even brighter with whitish light. That's a pretty normal videogame thing, but it does somewhat undermine the sense of being swallowed by darkness. Good news if you're not into it: You can turn it off.
We didn't get a release date for Diablo IV, but Blizzard did share details on a new playable class at BlizzConline 2021. And like the barbarian before it, the rogue is one fans of the series will know well. She was one of three classes you could play in the original back in 1997, and her sisterhood made an appearance in the first act of Diablo II.
BlizzConline (also known as BlizzCon 2021) has officially begun. This two-day event not only marks the 30th Anniversary of Blizzard but will also play host to all the latest news about its games. To keep you in the know, we’ll be rounding up all the announcements and reveals from the opening ceremony and panels right here.
Blizzard has finally announced Diablo 2 Resurrected, one of the worst-kept secrets in the video game industry. This rekindling of the 20-year-old action role-playing great has fans aflutter - here we have a remaster - not a remake - of the game that for many defined the genre. It is an understatement to say Diablo 2 is fondly remembered. It is beloved.
Blizzard today confirmed the fourth class for Diablo IV, a familiar scarred face. After a few years away, rogues return to the action-RPG to pling arrows, fling caltrops, and swing daggers. Certainly looking a lot livelier than she did in Diablo 1. Here, see her in action in the ha-ha-hilariously edgy new trailer.

The reveal of Diablo 2 Resurrected didn’t exactly catch fans by surprise (the project has been rumored to be in development for a while and was leaked ahead of the announcement), but there’s something undeniably exciting about seeing Blizzard finally revisit what many consider to be the finest ARPG ever made.
After canceling BlizzCon 2020 due to the pandemic, Blizzard is back — earlier than usual in the year — for BlizzCon 2021. Blizzard is actually calling it “BlizzConline 2021.” Expect to hear updates on anticipated titles, including Diablo IV, Overwatch 2, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and perhaps a sneak peek at the rumored Diablo 2 remaster.
Diablo is a beast that looms over every action-RPG, with its 24 years of dominance and a legacy that makes other games sweat. Diablo 3, despite a bumpy start, carried on that legacy, and players got to watch it evolve over a multitude of updates. There was the itemisation overhaul, the Necromancer class and an endless supply of rifts. Then the tap was turned off. With the titan slumbering, the ever inventive Path of Exile seems to have taken its place. Diablo 4 is coming, but when it finally arrives, it's going to have some tough competition.
Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the Rogue class will be one of the five playable characters in Diablo 4, joining the Barbarian, Sorceress, and Druid, who were all revealed when Diablo 4 was first announced at Blizzcon 2019. In an interview with IGN, game director Luis Barriga likened her to...
During the Diablo 4 deep dive segment of BlizzConline, the RPG game’s developers provided some new details on how PvP combat will work when the Diablo 4 release date finally arrives. It sounds like a pretty neat concept: the Plains of Hatred are Diablo 4’s optional PvP areas, and they’re integrated seamlessly into the rest of the open-world game.
Two years after announcing Diablo 4 at BlizzCon 2019, we unfortunately still don’t have a release date for the next installment in the action-RPG series. But, we did get to meet the new class that will be available in the game: the Rogue. The Rogue is Diablo 4’s first dexterity...
Diablo 4 is getting a Rogue class and Diablo 2 Remastered "should come this year," according to leaker
Diablo 4 will reportedly see the return of the rogue class and an increased level of character customization. According to a post on Reddit from credible leaker PracticalBrush12, Diablo 4 will feature the Rogue as a playable class. The leak says that the archetype - which was playable in the original Diablo and featured as an NPC in Diablo 2 - "uses bows, crossbows, swords and daggers and is quite mobile."
BlizzConOnline kicks off in a handful of hours, and while fans are expecting some sort of update on Diablo 4, it looks like the development team just dropped some early and meaty tidbits on how the game is shaping up so far. In the latest update, Blizzard revealed how the grim RPG is handling elements such as storytelling, its open-world, and seamless multiplayer.
Want to know more about the Sorceress in Diablo 4? The Sorceress/Sorcerer has been in every Diablo game since the beginning of the series, and there’s a good reason for that. Sure, playing as a Barbarian capable of wielding four weapons at once is pretty cool, but the Sorceress has mastered control over fire, ice, and lightning – that is considerably better than being able to hold a sword and an axe at the same time.
A Blizzard leaker who previously leaked Diablo 4 and a couple of other games has taken to Twitter to possibly spoil BlizzCon 2021, which is set to go down later this week. The rumor begins by claiming that we won't get an Overwatch 2 release date, but rather see new heroes, new maps, and get a sneak peak at the lore. Meanwhile, BlizzCon will provide a similarly disappointing update on Diablo 4, or more specifically, word of a new class and an area reveal.
Looks like Blizzard needs to revise its vow of secrecy. More Blizzard BlizzConline leaks have revealed some new info about Diablo 4. Blizzard is going to release a Diablo 2 remake that will bring new visual and gameplay tweaks. What Diablo info is in these Blizzard BlizzConline leaks?. This info...
Blizzard fans hoping to hear about Overwatch 2 or Diablo 4 release dates at Blizzard’s upcoming BlizzConline 2021 will want to temper their expectations. Publisher Activision Blizzard said in an earnings call on Thursday that neither game is expected to be released in 2021. No release window was given. Activision...
