The game I have been waiting for, for the past few years, is finally… in the works!
There are only 2 classes for now, the melee Barbarian and the summoner Witchdoctor (who resembles trolls from the Warcraft universe). The game is unlikely to be released before they have 5 classes, and they will still have to do endless fine-tuning and balancing of the classes so that there is no one super class who is very much easier to play than the others. I probably won’t get to play it before 2010, knowing how long Blizzard takes to release a game. But if the game play trailer is anything to go by, it should be worth the wait.
The 3D game engine looks to be much more immersive than the 2D engine of Diabo 2. Monsters swarming over the walls to get to you, pushing down the walls to bury mobs, falling bridges, it looks like it can really make me break out in a cold sweat if I play this in a dark room at night like I used to. The cinematic trailers are gorgeous as usual, and they really set the gothic mood of the game. But in truth, even though I have completed the game several times, using different characters, I watch the trailers only once. I know this is not going to help, but skip the trailers and get on with the game already!
