Diablo II and Diablo III players can use the help of companions – mercenary warriors ready to serve our cause with weapons or magic. In the second game there are many of them and they have to be paid for the services they provide. On the other hand, in the third game, it was possible to find only three – the templar Cormac, the rogue Lyndon and the witch Irene – but each of these characters has their own story background.
If you are wondering, How can this problem be solved? A partial answer comes courtesy of Diablo IV PCGamesN‘s Lauren Bergin asked Adam Z. Jackson — lead class designer on the fourth installment.
“For the launch version of the game we have a few places in the story where you have some named NPCs following you around and helping you out. When you recognize what Lilith is doing in the world. We have nothing to declare about this Diablo 2-Type the follower you’ll be recruiting – we’re sticking it to the campaign for now. Stay tuned, we may have something to announce in the future but no promises.
Bergin noted that this last sentence caused a funny reaction from one of the developers Diablo IV, aka Ash Sweetring, is responsible for creating the dungeons we get to explore in the game. This means that Blizzard already has some plans for companions. They are likely to worry about the end game.
As a reminder, I’ll add its release Diablo IV is scheduled June 6, 2023, on PC, PS4, PS5, XOne and XSX/S.
