Just when we thought Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding launch trailer was long, clocking in at 8 minutes long. Blizzard Entertainment just announced Diablo IV on stage at BlizzCon 2019 with a stunning as always, 9-minute cinematic trailer.
Three character classes were revealed along with the announcement:
- The Barbarian, known for their unparalleled strength and brutal melee combat, utilizes a new and more powerful system in battle, Arsenal, which arms them with the ability to carry and rapidly switch between four different weapons at a time by assigning them to individual attacks.
- The Sorceress hearkens back to their Diablo II roots and shapes the elements to obliterate their foes by impaling them upon jagged spikes of ice, electrocuting them with bolts of lightning, or raining flaming meteors from the sky.
- The Druid is a savage shapeshifter whose updated playstyle empowers them to fluidly transform between werewolf, werebear, and human form to unleash the raw power of nature’s furyon the forces of the Burning Hells.

In usual Blizzard fashion, there is no release date yet, but it will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. We’re guessing by the time it releases, it’ll be on the next-gen consoles too.
