Blizzard Entertainment released the first quarterly update for Diablo 4 this week. The makers deal with the user interface, controller support on the PC and adjustments for the couch-co-op mode. The cannibals are also presented in detail as the first monster family.
The Blizzard Entertainment team has the first Quarterly update for Diablo 4 published and some news about the upcoming project announced. The announcement focuses on the user interface, controller support and the planned co-op mode. The design of the new cannibals is also shown.
Based on the feedback from the BlizzCon demo, the creators experimented with the position of the action bar. While in the demo the bar was attached to the PC on the lower left for the first time, it has now been decided to use the original position in the lower center as the standard. Blizzard has recognized that the distance between the eyes and the screen plays a major role in the positioning of the action bar. Therefore, in the console version of Diablo 4, the bar will be on the left. On the PC you will have both options to choose from.
Items will no longer have different sizes in the new inventory. The backgrounds of the individual symbols were also decorated with decorations on the frame to make the rarity of the objects clearer. You can get an impression of the inventory screen in the picture below.
Because Diablo 4 will be released simultaneously for PC and console, the game not only offers a uniform user interface, but also direct controller support on the PC. The developers also took the feedback of the Diablo 3 couch co-op mode to heart. In part 4 of the series, players can operate their menus simultaneously in the future. So far, you always had to wait for your teammate.
Finally, the first monster family was presented in detail with the cannibals. In keeping with this, Blizzard has also published a video. In general, the focus is once again on the new monster families, which are being introduced for the first time with Diablo 4. We have prepared the YouTube video for you below.
