More details like character and horse customization and PvP currency also revealed.
BlizzConline 2021 starts later today but the leaks continue to flow. PracticalBrush12, who most recently leaked details on Monster Hunter Rise’s newest trailer, has provided new information on Diablo 4 and Diablo 2 Remastered. For the former, they confirmed that the next class to be revealed is the Rogue who will use bows, swords, daggers and crossbows while possessing high mobility.
Other details include makeup, tattoo, skin and hair color customization for one’s character and class specialization being tied to the faction one supports. Class quests are done in the open world. It also seems that item drops will reflect the locations they drop. For example, a sword that drops in the desert will be a scimitar but in the north, it’s a broadsword.
Horse customization is also confirmed and you can also “conquer” monster camps “for the people” (the details on this aren’t clear). Player vs. player combat has an interesting new mechanic. The currency for it, which can be used to purchase cosmetics, is collected by killing monsters. However, it’s in an impure state. Purifying it allows others to kill you and steal the shards for themselves.
No details have been provided on a beta test or release. As always, take the above information with a grain of salt. Diablo 4 is currently in development for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
