Forum Index General Discussion So Diablo IV at Blizzcon this year(Chris interview)?

History

As a one shot game I'm actually expecting D4 to be really good.

The true question is wether or not the game will be designed to properly last (a bit like PoE basically) with strong season theme and new mechanics.

My concern regarding this is that Blizz usually doesn't make F2P games.
On one hand, I don't want to have D4 as a F2P because it means many things will be locked behind microtransaction (and I don't trust them to make a proper model), on the other hand, if it's a proper game that you pay once, I can't expect the game to last more than a few play through as they won't fund developpement on a game that has no continuous income.

I've heard of D4 becoming an mmo (a bit like Lost Ark or something), that could be a thing.

Only time will tell, but in term of first playthrough, I'm not afraid, i'm sure it'll be good. Well polished animation n stuff, especially after all the backlash D3 has gotten.
But I'm not holding my breath for DIII staying alive as PoE currently is over eons.

Oh, I wasn't aware of the "fact" that Diablo Immortal was the ONLY thing they talked about at Blizzcon.


Now you know ;)

Actually it was. It was through their forum mod who wrote an apology to warn fans/con attendees to expect no news and inferred “multiple projects....and good things take time” aka D4. History was written and birthed the best pr for Blizz and the Diablo franchise in decades, the epic meme courtesy of W.Cheng.

No, it was not. That's a lie. Astounding what feelings force you to do with facts. Wasn't there a saying about facts and feelings? hm.

Anyways. Have fun living in this world where only one thing is good and superior and everything else is shit. I don't want to live there. So you can have it.

Byeeeeee.

Judging by the replies to the reporter, GGG will present something with substance and effort, while Blizzard will display bullshit on a silver plate and call it a meal.


Hah! Yup

I don't, actually. I seem to remember WoW announcements, Overwatch announcements and even Warcraft 3 announcements.

Maybe I'm just drunk ;)

Warcraft 3 annoucement? "We will take old game and switch graphics to HD". Yay, Im soooo hyped. The thing is, Im not. Both Overwatch and WoW are games that already exist. We dont need huge con just to hear about some update to those games. Those are just "fillers".
So the only actual new game they annouced was... mobile game.

So you expect them to announce a game every year at Blizzcon. Roger. That may be a fair expectation, I have no clue. What new game did they announce at Blizzcon 2017? What about 2016? I actually have no clue if expecting a new game every year is off bounds or not.

Anyhow, not important. What they did wrong, was the hype. They told the Diablo fans to get hyped, then they read the internet, and came out with a counter message; "don't get THAT hyped". I found it all very funny.

Don't be that guy, dude. You know as well as everyone else that Diablo Immortal wasn't their only announcement. You know as well as anyone that they don't necessarily announce new games at Blizzcon.

People were hyped for Diablo news. They got let down by Immortal and got butthurt. Blizzard handled their hype and Blizzcon poorly. Some fans handled it worse.

YOU came with your "fact" that Diablo Immortal was their only announcement at Blizzcon. I don't think they guy you are quoting is the one who should "back up his claim". You are wrong, he is right. Let's just move on.
