The game starts with the player choosing which class he wants to play. As of now, there are six different classes. Those are Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor, Crusader and Wizard. Another class is currently in development, which is known as the Necromancer. The player gives this Character a name and chooses if he wants to play normally, or likes it the hardcore way and if he wants to participate in a Season. The Hardcore play style is known to be unforgiving with the character being permanently death if he ever gets killed.
The journey begins, and the player can either enjoy the rich, little story of Diablo 3, do some bounty hunting or face off against masses of enemies in the so-called Rifts. Killing massive amounts of monsters was always a core feature in Diablo, and it won’t change with Diablo 3. The player can be accompanied by one of the three followers or up to 3 other players. Together they slaughter all the monsters to save the world and pocket in some nice items.
The interaction with the world experienced some improvements with Diablo 3. Players don’t need to collect scrolls anymore to identify items or return to the city. The potion they use is infinite, which also helps to keep more space in the inventory for important items. On the journey, the player can find additional potions which give him a unique buff upon healing.
The combat in Diablo 3 is far more complex and customisable than in its predecessors. The player has a lot of skills at hand and can improve their performance by using one of the five skill runes. This gives room for many great combinations. Additionally, items have specific effects that complement with those skills and make them even stronger. Stats can be further pushed by the Paragon levels and gems that can be used in the equipment. Here can be differed between simple stat gems and the so-called legendary gems which provide big boosts and can be levelled. Another feature is the horadric cube, which allows the player to equip three additional effects from equipment. There is a slot for a weapon effect, an armour effect and an accessory effect. Overall, there are multiple ways to make the playstyle for players unique.
