A lengthy episode this week following Gamescom. This week the Diablo Podcast discusses some of the answers we heard from Blizzard at Gamescom, the future of Diablo, and the current state of the game. There’s a lot to go over including expectations, the vocal minority, Battle Passes, annual expansions, and much more.
I would be not doing my job if I did not mention HCXanth’s new facial hair look so tune in even if it’s just to check that out 😉
