Via user PracticalBrush12 on the Diablo sub-reddit, who has a post history to back up the following claims, we have a little (unconfirmed) insight into what might be in store for Diablo IV. PracticalBrush12's post below:

  • Diablo 4 is actually going to look dark, gritty and gross - no more rainbow shiny bullshit this time! Locations are toned down, infrequently laid with corpses, wasteland, greyish deserts, cult caves surrounded by flesh, rotten crypts, marshes and bogs, plagued cities you name it. 
  • Cities are also seemingly much bigger, maybe even open? 
  • Characters now are able to ride horses (possibly other mounts), also there's contextual interaction with environment ? - climbing a wall Lost Ark style. 
  • Blood splatters look more like blood and not splashed jam too.
  • So far I can confirm 3 classes: mage (uses fire, ice and lightning so far), barbarian (swords, clubs, axes, kicks etc), and druid (lightning, wind, and transforming into beasts - so far bear and werewolf!).
  • Possibly there will be PvP from the start?. 4 player coop is there for sure.
  • All this game seems to be is a W I N K to the Diablo 2 fans, Lilith being the new diablo (she's covered in blood veil kinda), characters being shown sitting at a campfire as character selection, nitty gritty dark style that 2 was praised for, some skills also seem to be just taken from it and put in here (like sorceress' charged bolt). I'm interested and hope they don't fuck this up. The company is bad, but the game might not be this time.
  • No date yet too.. sorry.
Assuming all of this is true, I am personally happy to see Blizz taking Diablo back to its darker roots. Now, let's just hope they don't add sub fees or stupid amounts of microtransactions. That would be the end of the Diablo franchise for me.

The reviews are in before Pokemon Sword and Shield hits stores this Friday. Overall, if you're a huge Pokemon fan, things are looking pretty good. Larger outlets are claiming that while this installment of the Pokemon franchise doesn't innovate as much as they hoped it would, it is still a lot of fun and vastly expands our options for future Pokemon titles.

Need for Speed Heat is out and the reviews are looking...okay. It doesn't seem like it is the perfect spiritual successor to Need for Speed Underground, but it also isn't the worst next step in the series.
