Diablo is a hack and slash and dungeon crawl “dark fantasy” themed RPG action video game developed by Blizzard North and released by Blizzard Entertainment on December 31, 1996, for PC and Mac. Diablo 4, for its part, is one of the most sought-after titles for the fans.
Diablo is an RPG that made history
The story takes place in the fictional kingdom of Khanduras, located in the mortuary lands. In Diablo, the player takes control of a lonely hero who struggles to escape the world led by Diablo, the Lord of Terror. Under the city of Tristram, the player travels through sixteen randomly generated dungeon levels. At the end of them, the player enters Hell to face Diablo.
An expansion package called Diablo: Hellfire was launched in 1997 by Sierra Entertainment. In 1998 Blizzard launched Diablo for PlayStation. This version has direct control of the main character using a PlayStation controller and was developed by Climax Studios. The success of the game led to two sequels, Diablo II in 2000 and Diablo III in 2012. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Diablo, the original game was recreated in Diablo III in early 2017.
The movements of the player and the interaction with the environment are done first with the help of a mouse, other actions such as invoking some magic are preferably done with the keyboard. The player can purchase various items (armor, health potions, arrows, weapons, etc.), learn spells, defeat enemies, and interact with non-playable characters (NPCs) during the game.
Diablo 4 possible release date
The first Diablo was launched by Blizzard on December 31, 1996, almost 23 years ago. Diablo II, that famous and mega-played through game rooms and home? In 2000! Twenty years ago, soon.
Blizzard people were quickly forgiven for censoring Hong Kong protesters because recently, at Blizzcon, the devs announced Diablo 4, though not a specific release date. Could it be 2020 or 2021, we don’t know. Hopefully, it will launch this year.
