    Basically, what's new and the Witcher already has that and the gray choices. But that's OK, however this is what I was referring to, besides the classes:
    Does that mean 4 two-handed weapons or four one handed ones like the barb was doing it in DII when switching weapons?

    Don't get me wrong. I really like what I'm seeing. They've combined a lot of games graphics wise, Dark Souls, Witcher whatnot. Diablo is only a shadow because the first two games were never 3D and it's hard to transpose.
    I was just hoping for less nostalgia and more of a bald sequel.
    If the story and music stand up, then by all means.

    Wow, cool @Archian. I hope things actually mended that way.

    Well, I'm genuinely impressed with Diablo 4, especially after watching the panel - it sounds like they're taking all the good parts from all 3 games, add some new features and mash them all together in a very dark and gritty open world aRPG. This could be really fun.

    As for music, there was a new (?) track playing in between Diablo and Overwatch panel and it definetely sounded like something from Diablo 1/2, not D3. Can't find it anywhere, but I think it was really good.

    In regards to the story, they have confirmed that the creative director for Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077, Sebastian Stępień, who joined Blizzard early this year is on the Diablo 4 team, which at least to me sounds very promising.

    So far, so good - definetely interested, let's hope they don't fuck this up.

    Guys! This is like almost ten minutes



    Diablo® IV

    Wow, hope they'll make a small movie like they did with DII.
    Yeah! Looking forward for a Witchersque Diablo IV, for sure: open world, mounts, gray choices etc.
    Not impressed with the intro's music. It's cheesy trailer style.

    I'm not talking about the video background music - to me it sounded like generic trailer music, I doubt it's an actual track from the game. I'm talking about another track right after the panel that sounded new and gave me those D1/2 vibes.

    I know. I was referring to the music in the short intro film, not the gameplay.
    What minute?
    You mean that piece right at the end? It sounds like Diablo III type music, not DII, yuck, also trailer cheese.

    I can't find it, it played briefly right after the panel ended - it's not in any trailer. I really liked it, but I guess we will see.

    Hopefully they come up with some really atmospheric, spooky music.

    Nope, not this one. The one I'm talking about came later, in the 15 minute break between panels.
    I've checked all of the vids I could find, even on their site and I can't find it.

    Heck, maybe I'm hallucinating or something :D

    How about the one on the game's official site. Turn it on on the left down corner.

    No idea. That's the schedule but it's incomplete.
    EDIT: it's on November the 3rd: Join Us At BlizzCon 2019




    The druid is on steroids, I'm afraid. The barbarian was supposed to be the biggest, now the other poser comes along. As a bear, sure but not as a human. I mean, all that knowledge gaining and nature understanding. How does that bring so much muscle over brute barbarian force, daily?

    Not this one, either - but I have to say, I like this one too.

    I've found it:


    It's hard to put timestamps on this, but basically jump to where the panel is ending and the "Up Next" screen appears and wait a bit until that D3-ish music stops.

    Yeah, it takes from Lut Gholein/Act II's music with a bigger spice of Act I actually.

    Being in tune with nature he must be quite knowledgeable about proper nutrition.
