It looks like the latest update about the creation of Diablo IV adds quite a bit of interesting information on new enemies in the game, going in depth not only about the new cannibal group, but also telling us more about the unique and interesting way the monster “families”.
Showcasing some impressive art and telling us more about what goes on behind the curtain, the update really helps to give us some appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes into the creation of the gothic and grotesque monsters we’ll be battling.
It’s a bit of a tricky one though, as you immediately feel some conflicting feelings about the game itself, with so many negative stories colouring the opinion of the reader. Whilst you want to appreciate the intricate details of the creatures themselves, you find your mind wandering to the bad consumer practice news stories over the last few months.
Having had a disastrous launch with Warcraft III: Reforged and the Blitzchung debacle back in October, Activision Blizzard has alienated many of the fans of their previous work, destroying the good will and passion that was cultivated in many through years of good releases, meaning that now, it seems difficult to really separate the company from the anti-consumer practices we’ve seen lately.
Personally, whilst I find the creation process interesting and don’t hold the developers themselves responsible for the choices of the senior management, I find it difficult to get excited about a new title from the publisher.
