Diablo 4 Rumors

Controller Support

Diablo 4 will support controllers on PC. Diablo 3 personally is more suitable with the keyboard and mouse itself. Blizzard also wanted to give players to switch between two options freely on settings. Supporting controllers on Diablo 4 PC might be inconvenient for some players. As a result, developers might need to research more on working a better UI design for controllers so no hardware gets any special advantages.

Story and setting

The reason why most players are hype about the game as mentioned above. Diablo 4 will be related to Diablo 3. If you are trying to follow the game, playing Diablo 3 and understanding the story will burn your time while waiting. The game will be also in an open world and will be with five unique regions with both a day/night cycle and ever-changing weather. Missions are non-linear, which means that you can play them however you like.

PVP feature

Diablo 4 is designed from a PVP perspective. This means that players can battle each other and can expect each class to be balanced during updates whether to nerf or buff specific class if overpowered or overpicked. The battle might be in five regions and you can choose to enable or disable the PVP zone. There is also confirmed to be a CLAN which you can join to help each other during PVP.

Skill changes and talent trees

According to a rumour from Eurogamer, there is a new system that will be replacing your spending points on skills. In addition, there will also be some new effects that buff your class at a high level. Each class will also have its talent tree which will make the game harder since there will be different builds for different stat and buff.

UI changes

Nowadays, gamers use controllers for PC games. Diablo 3 is designed only for the keyboard and mouse. They didn’t even add it throughout all this year. This will be meaning a lot of UI changes that will be suitable for both mouse and keyboard and controller as an option. The other UI changes will be changed based on the dissatisfaction from Diablo 3 players.
