    [​IMG]Diablo 4 has been doing the rounds recently with a number of outlets covering it to some degree.

    The Blizzcon 2019 Demo

    DSOGaming shared some hi-def screenshots.

    Still, I'm certain that most Diablo fans will find these screenshots interesting. After all, these screenshots are artifact-free (something from which all YouTube videos/trailers suffer). So yeah, they can better showcase the game's graphics. Furthermore, some screenshots are in a 21:9 ratio. As such, we can safely assume that the game will support ultra widescreen monitors at launch.

    JustPushStart had some small details on Diablo 4's loot system.

    [​IMG]

    During the Diablo IV revealed panel, a number of details were shared about the system. The most notable is that loot is based on a number of elements from Diablo II and III. These include, but are not limited to a wide variety of armor, weapons, jewelry, and potions, along with boasting the most legendary items in the franchise and new set items to collect.

    Wccftech reports on the 100+ towns you will visit.

    We want to bring back this very very specific vibe that makes Diablo unique and it's not only about darkness, so this is very, very important for us because it impacts almost every layer of the game, every aspect. The first thing is the story. We want to make a much more grounded story [in Diablo IV] than in Diablo III. And we think that the best way to deliver this story is to give you a possibility to discover stories of simple folks and that's why you are watching this movie right now. So imagine this kind of village, this is just an example. It's not about this specific village, we have like over 100 villages or places like this.

    OnlySP focused on Diablo 4's monsters and classes.

    Diablo IV will launch with five playable classes, with the first three revealed as the Barbarian, Sorceress, and Druid. The Barbarian utilises an arsenal system that allows them to switch between four different weapon types on the fly.

    The Sorceress is described as "fragile but destructive," and can harness fire, cold, and lightning magic. Cold damage will also build up over time, which increases damage and affects more targets.
