Jay Wilson Discusses Diablo III Development
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

MMOsite.com recently posted the results of an interview with Blizzard Entertainment's Jay Wilson about Diablo III, the upcoming continuation of its action RPG franchise. Diablo III will return the players to the world of Sanctuary, once again under threat from demonic powers.

iablo III is designed to redefine the gaming experience of Diablo series. Diablo I and Diablo II emphasized action scenes, but Diablo III intends to strengthen the game's depth so as to make it a better and more profound RPG. As the previous Diablo installments paid attention to action performance instead of role playing, the developers hope Diablo III can make progress in presenting the role-playing elements and absorb the essence of Diablo I and Diablo II at the same time.

It is the most important to determine what the essence of Diablo series is and know what has made Diablo I and Diablo II classical, Jay Wilson pointed out. If developers often review these points, they won't make mistakes and be entangled in trivial things during the development phase.

According to Jay Wilson, in order to make Diablo III approachable, developers employ a fixed perspective, mouse manipulation, distinct character types, a reality-based fantasy world and understandable game systems etc. with the hope of allowing people who play the game for the first time to know how to find monsters, cast skills and grind mobs as soon as possible. He said players would operate straight and find what they want to control in the game interface. The formerly inconvenient potion system and the same control of each class have also been modified. Diablo III will prepare unique skills for different classes and each class will be able to take diverse measures to cope with different situations. Furthermore, the specially designed quick-use bar will be corresponded with various skills so that players can flee, defend and cast skills more easily and directly.
