Perhaps the most anticipated game Blizzard is developing right now is Diablo IV. It’s been almost two years since Diablo 4 was announced, which makes us even hungrier for a sequel. Those who attended BlizzCon 2019 had a chance on a playable demo. But this year’s BlizzConline gave a ton of new info about the upcoming action-RPG, and what it means for the franchise. While the BlizzConline was a low-key one, mainly because of the pandemic, the amount of revealed information about the game is more than enough in offering a clearer picture about what we can expect with Diablo 4.
The Witcher 3 has made some phenomenal hype since its release, five years ago. Its first two games have gained worldwide distinction, and this sequel promised all of that plus an even bigger map ever created. Nowadays, following the hype of Triple-A game releases until the end, often just leads to disappointment, like what happened to its Cyberpunk 2077.
Throughout history, the RPG genre has offered some of the most complex gameplay and storytelling within the medium of video games. This 2020, the RPG genre hit some remarkable strides with some highly-anticipated releases. Along with Final Fantasy VII Remake, we also saw other games that contain more “freedom,” like Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
