Animations looked rough, framerate was all over the place and gameplay looked early, but i like the design of slower pace game and i hope they stick to it.
I want something else to clusterfuck that D3 was or PoE end-game gameplay in many builds is.
Speed meta is fun, but slower and methodical gameplay can be very fun as well.
Art direction is quite good.

Game is definitely not releasing next year, i dont know if it will be even ready for 2021 knowing Blizzard dev times.

I'm not a Diablo guy but the play footage shown looks pretty fun and since this is console simultaneous release I probably won't have to deal with that point and click single-character action game interface I hate so much.

probably would still have to deal with Item Noise though so I shouldn't get too excited

ive been playing D3 since launch (i grew up with D2) and for the whole damn time i didn't understand why people were complaining about the aesthetic of the game. It looked like a moody oil painting that wasn't afraid to show some pop here and there, but still conveyed a sense of a land past it's prime that's being overrun by demons.

me, ten seconds into the gameplay trailer: "ohhh so that's what they mean"

Free Xinjiang. Denounce authoritarian governments. Support free speech. Blizzard, we need specifics.

Gameplay environments are way, way too visually bland thus far, but cool, I guess. Especially with the fact it's a joint release across PC and consoles.

Hopefully Blizzard grows a spine before release.

Certainly looks rough but the core is there. Cannot wait to see how it progresses.

Wow looks good from those brief glimpses. Tonally looks more fitting for the franchise.

I've been playing Blizzard games longer than many of you have been alive. I know what to reasonably expect. This was a disappointment, and it's because of current gen console targeting almost assuredly.
Eh I don't think so. Just look at what PS4 and X1 are capable of graphically. I never expected the new Diablo looking like God of War or Red Dead 2. And they probably want this to be able to run on most PCs instead of targeting the high end market. Diablo is super-mainstream.

A cool CGI is all it took for people to forget about HK, cool.

Hopefully the combat will be improved as the development goes, because right now I think Lost Ark still has it beat.

Graphics look like something that'll be possible on mobile devices in just a few years. What a bummer. Maybe my expectations were too high.

The gameplay while good, did look a good bit early to me. The absence of any loot or UI also tells me we got a good long ways to go. Pretty much what I expected but hoped it'd be closer. Ofc it's just my impression, plz prove me wrong Blizz!!

Was announced as ps4/x1/pc thinking a 2020 release especially since there is a playable demo today at the show

I want my badass Demon Hunter to come back, so I hope it's not just three characters to start.

Looks much better than I expected, im actually stunned. Finally a proper art style again. Also people saying it looks like desaturated Diablo 3 are stoned lol.

Gameplay looks slow. I hope they didn't dumb it down to make it work on consoles.
