Blizzard has revealed more information on Diablo 4 as part of its new quarterly update for the game. The update features a number of screenshots from the pre-alpha build of Diablo 4.
This time around, the quarterly update focuses largely on Diablo 4’s art, with game director Luis Barriga, art director John Mueller, associate art director for characters Nick Chilano, and lead character artist Arnaud Kotelnikoff showing off new assets and talking about Diablo 4’s general art style.
Going by the update, it looks like armour sets between different genders of the same class will retain the same look, albeit with subtle differences between the two gendered armours. Examples used to show this off include the Barbarian and the Rogue.
The post also talks about the new dye system that allows players to customise the looks of their characters by changing the colour palettes for individual pieces of armour. Each part of the armour can be dyed, and each dye can be a different colour if that’s what the player decides.
Along with these features, the blog post also features slow motion videos of the Barbarian and the Rogue, showing off Diablo 4’s animation work, as well as to give players a look at the new physics of Diablo 4’s armour.
Alongside showing off Diablo 4’s art style with some of its characters and armour sets, the blog post also shows off a couple of enemies from the upcoming game: the Blood Bishop, and the Skeleton Lord.
