We were all awaiting new Diablo IV news at BlizzCon this weekend. Last night during the event’s big opening ceremony, we got our latest look at the game, this time with a trailer focusing on the Rogue class.
The Rogue is returning for Diablo IV, after not appearing in a Diablo game since the original. The Rogue will be one of the first classes available in Diablo 4, joining previously announced classes: Barbarian, Sorceress and Druid.
The Rogue class won’t be exactly the same as we remember. Long-range combat will be one build option, but you can also set up the Rogue to play more like the Assassin class from Diablo 2 with more close-ranged combat abilities.
Stealth abilities, temporary invulnerability and damage buffs are all also possible with the Rogue class. In Diablo IV, we can expect class-specific quests too. For the Rogue, players will be able to choose between different factions of Rogues and work with them on missions throughout Sanctuary.
You can get a good look at the class and its different abilities in the trailer. Diablo IV does not have a release date yet, but it won’t be coming out this year. Instead, we’ll be getting Diablo 2: Resurrected in 2021 to help ease the wait for Diablo IV’s eventual debut.
