Diablo III Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

GamePron has posted a new preview article focusing on Blizzard Entertainment's upcoming Diablo III action RPG sequel. Diablo III will return players to the war torn world of Sanctuary, where they must once again take up arms against the forces of hell.

From the preview:

One noticeable difference between Diablo II and III is the increased focus on the story. Diablo II didn’t seem to have much of one to me, and my character certainly never felt a part of it. In Diablo III you interact with characters outside of the town. There are short dialogue scenes where your character actually talks. Not only that, but during gameplay your character will comment on the going-ons around them. This gives the game a narrative voice and makes it so you feel connected to the other characters and even other players, as you thank them for healing you. There are also lore books scattered about that can be read to you while you bash through monsters, telling the story without interrupting the flow of the gameplay which is always a huge plus.
Check out the full preview at the link below.
