Blizzard may introduce news about the Diablo franchise soon, but a heap of rumors that has emerged on Reddit indicates what fans can expect from the next games in the series. A profile called “PracticalBrush12”, which has previously made accurate leaks, revealed alleged information about Diablo 2 Remaster and Diablo 4.
According to the source, the next class of Diablo 4 that will be revealed by Blizzard is called Rogue. The leak points out that the character of this division will be agile and will use weapons such as bows, crossbows, swords and daggers.
The person responsible for the leak also points out that Diablo 4 will have more options for character customization, including alternatives of skin, tattoo, makeup and hair color. The player’s mount can also be customized.
When it comes to progression, the game must bring a class specialization system linked to factions, in addition to items that appear only in certain regions. The leak also indicates the existence of a special coin present in certain PvP (player versus player) areas, which is supposed to be used to purchase cosmetics.
Diablo 2 Remaster exists and could arrive in 2021
The leak also has information about Diablo 2 Remaster. According to the information, the game exists and should be released later this year, with an alpha testing phase being announced soon, possibly during BlizzCon 2021.
The great highlight of the remaster should be the visual, which will have renewed graphics, but without losing the essence of the original gameplay. According to the rumor, Blizzard is using a new engine to guarantee graphic improvements, including dynamic lighting, 60 frames per second and support for control.
Even with the aesthetic improvements, the game will still have a dark look and gameplay identical to the original. Diablo 2 Remaster will also bring support for progress shared across platforms, according to speculation, and will not require constant internet connection to be played.
What’s new at BlizzCon?
Blizzard has not officially commented on the matter and all information listed above should be considered rumors. However, all details arrive at an opportune time.
The vast amount of information about the new Diablo games appeared just before BlizzCon 2021, which can confirm some of the leaked details. The Blizzard 100% online event starts today (19) and we will have live coverage on Voxel starting at 6:30 pm.
