'Diablo 3' News: Blizzard's RPG Losing Its Luster Amidst Lack Of New Content [VIDEO]; Can 'Diablo 4' Save The Day?
The huge fanbase of "Diablo 3" have been clamoring for more content while reportedly putting up with a mediocre playing experience.
Much to the dismay of "Diablo 3" players, Blizzard Entertainment seems to be in no mood to answer their prayers. Instead, the game developer is currently hard at works on the updated version of the title. However, the seemingly uncurious players are straying from their former favorite hack and slash RPG (role-playing video game) and switching their interest towards Grinding Gear Games' online role-playing game dubbed, "Path of Exile."
Blizzard Entertainment is leaving no stone unturned in a bid to make the sequel to "Diablo 3," as engaging as possible. The downside of this; however, is that the studio failed to roll out adequate updates to keep players glued to the current version.
In the intervening time, Grinding Gear Games rolled out a new update for their "Fall of Oriath" game. The said update came with an expansion pack that comprised 26 new bosses coupled with six new acts for a comprehensive 10 playable acts. This update grabbed the attention of "Diablo 3" players, who have restlessly been waiting for the new game.
"Diablo 3" is constantly losing its luster as more and more players continue to abandon the once-popular title. Fans and players of "Diablo 3" vented their frustration on an official Battel.NET post. In a thread entitled, "Why Is POE Getting More Recognition," players denounced "Diablo 3's" repetitive gameplay.
"Diablo 3" players claimed they have been experiencing a dearth of new content and material, which makes the game monotonous. Some avid gamers on a Reddit thread pointed out that RPGs such as "Path of Exile" offer more options and variations in terms of gameplay. Moreover, "POE" allows players to delve into the challenge leagues by giving a profound end game to its players.
It remains to be seen whether or not Blizzard Entertainment manages to retain the series' huge fanbase by releasing "Diablo 4." Do you think "Path of Exile" will leave "Diablo 3" behind? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!
