Diablo 4 has debuted a new 'gameplay launch trailer' and it shows all of the classes kicking some demon ass to a vaguely applicable Billie Eilish track.
I'm putting 'gameplay launch trailer' in quotes because the Diablo 4 early access release is still two weeks away on June 2 - you know, just so we're not setting anyone up for disappointment here.
Anyway, the new gameplay is textbook launch hype, featuring a brief cinematic with Diablo 4's main antagonist, Lilith, who appears to enter the gates to Sanctuary before the beat drops and everything kicks into action. The music threw me off a little, not because there's anything wrong with Billie Eilish - I am far too out of touch with modern artists to make a judgment on that - but because I'm so used to hearing sparsely arranged atmospheric tracks in Diablo more so than radio-friendly songs from today's hitmakers. But I digress.
The trailer shows a Diablo 4 barbarian Sparta kick a goon from a ledge, a rogue pelting hordes of demons with arrows, a druid – you guessed it – turning into a bear to wreak havoc on its foes, and all of the other classes revealed so far just doing their thing in the name of demon-slaying. We also get to see some brief glimpses of boss fights, including with the Blood Bishop and Treasure Beast, and while we do get a tiny peek at what could be the lead-up to the battle with Lilith, we don't actually see the Queen of the Succubi throw hands.
If you absolutely can't wait until June 2, here are some games like Diablo to hold you over until then.
