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

Eurogamer has posted a new preview of Diablo III, the much anticipated next installment of the popular action RPG series from Blizzard Entertainment. The preview includes commentary from Diablo III lead world designer Leonard Boyarsky and lead technical artist Julian Love.

Either way, your Demon Hunter, just like the other classes, will be defined by her skills, not her motivation (there will be a male model, by the way, and the silhouette on the login screen suggests he'll be similarly svelte and sexy, like a World of Warcraft Blood Elf). The Demon Hunter shows all the flair for dramatic and engaging skill design we've already come to expect from Diablo III, with greater emphasis on timing, positioning and physicality than the previous games. Bola Shot wraps itself around an enemy and blows up after a short delay, and can be used with skill for multiple takedowns. Multi-shot sprays out a cone of arrows, turning your Demon Hunter into a strafing attack ship from a Treasure shmup.

The Grenades skill defines the Diablo III difference; it unleashes three bombs which bounce past your click-point with momentum appropriate to how far they've been thrown, fanning out and bounding off walls and other objects, then exploding after a delay of a second or so. They seem random at first, but can be used with timing, skill and inventivess to absolutely murder crowds of demons at doors, corners and other choke points.
