Fans who witnessed the rise of Lilith at BlizzCon gave true meaning that “Diablo IV” will be one of those games that will go down on the history books.

Blizzard's new RPG dungeon crawler and the fourth installment of the beloved franchise will, without a doubt, revive the old-school flair mixed with a modern twist. Suffice to say, “Diablo IV” marks its return to the hearts of the players with the same impact and goosebumps Lilith gave the viewers.

The men behind “Diablo IV” became transparent when they told the gaming community that they are planning to share the progress of the game. As such, Game Director Luis Barriga and Art Director John Mueller sat down with AusGamers and tackled the game's prime antagonist and the eventual expansion it will have in the future.

“The last shot was the most important shot. Because it's not just a summoning, it's a summoning of the Queen of Sanctuary,” said Mueller, describing Lilith's arrival in the announcement. Apparently, she stabilized the whole fact that she was the big boss in the game and not Diablo.

The whole setup started when he and Barriga talked on how the game would look like.

“Luis, his vision was that Diablo was three things: darkness, world, and legacy,” he said.

This led to the creation of a new artwork to “feel the tone out.” “Sanctuary” depicted the angel Inarius and Lilith and in the process, sparked the team's creative juices.

“Once we saw, the art we were inspired, [Lilith] was a character that we could build a story around,” said Barriga.

Mueller, on the other hand, explained that “Diablo IV” is “like the first chapter of a book.” With that, the added that they wanted to tell a bigger story, and they plan to do it “for a very long time.”

The game's Art Director also teased that “Diablo IV” will have expansions in the future, and that it will introduce some familiar names and new ones in the long run.

“It feels great knowing that there are still all these other characters that could come back in the future. Or, new characters that we haven't seen before,” he said.

Notebook Check on the other hand sees that each expansion will center around a new villain. They pointed that Diablo had been the main boss since the game was announced, and players have already acquainted themselves with the demon. Diablo will still be featured, but the demon won't be on the starting block.

The outlet also added that the introduction of a new boss will set the bar for players to be challenged rather than dealing with Diablo all over again.

“Diablo was successively feeling less and less of a threat when max level characters had to battle him,” said Notebook Check.

Along this line, they raised a question on whether Blizzard will charge players for every new expansion, or will they keep them free. It's still unclear, but we'll soon find out.
