The concept of Diablo 2 Resurrected followers

  • Some may be apprehensive about the concept of Diablo 2 Resurrected followers, they may either love the idea or dislike them The helpful characters are now a regular part of the D2R Items action RPG's combat. I inquired with Blizzard what their plans are for the aides of Diablo 2 Resurrected, and while they didn't elaborate yet, it appears that followers might join with the group at some point.Speaking to lead class design director Adam Z. Jackson in the aftermath previews of Diablo 2 Resurrected gameplay preview, I asked whether or not the system for followers would be like that of Diablo 2 or Diablo 3 (if one exists in any way.

    For those who aren't aware, in Diablo 2 you would hire followers to descend on Hell's gates along with you, but when they were killed , you had to bring them back with cold, hard cash. New followers were introduced throughout each zone, which implies that certain followers were more powerful than others.

    This changed into Diablo 3, where instead hiring mercenaries, players got three different characters during the story's adventure. You had the Scoundrel, Sorceress and Templar who represented the different categories of DPS tank, ranged DPS, as well as magical users respectively.In my Diablo 2 Resurrected adventure I only encounter helpful NPCs, who hung around for a dungeon or two and then departed into the sunset. When I asked Jackson about how the game's follower function would work it was explained that "for the initial version of the game we do have some places in the story in which you'll see certain named NPCs who will follow you and help in figuring out the what Lilith is up to throughout the universe.

    "We don't have anything to declare about the Diablo-2 type follower you've hired - - we're sticking to the campaign for the moment." Emphasis on the current situation.

    With a smile, they continue "stay tuned, we may be able to announce something in the near future to reveal, but we can't make any promises." This immediately prompted an answer from the producer of dungeons, Ash Sweetring, who channelled her inner Mr. Burns with an 'interesting hand motion that was playing in the background. What's that? That's sus.If any version of the follower-based system makes its way into the Diablo game, I would prefer it to be a Diablo 2 style hired gun instead of all-encompassing followers. I really enjoyed the vast range of abilities that followers brought to the table in Diablo 2 and would love to see this system redesigned. This opens up even more options for different build types, as well as cheap D2R Items incredible demon-slaying abilities chains.
