The gaming genre born out of Diablo Real renaissance - players' hunger and market demand lead to large flood of new and ambitious titles
Many players, especially the older generation of us, remember the excitement surrounding Diablo 2 when it released in 2000. The sequel to the series, and the first serious one after a short first and fairly content game. Diablo 2 has re-dictated what can be done in a game with an unlimited amount of time, the ways in which you can develop and invest in character and possessions.
It's a real freedom that the player can be wherever he wants in a big world, with whatever objects he wants, some of which are quite rare and thus develop a unique form of play working with characters of one or another background. Diablo's story is also fascinating with a legend about an eternal war between good and evil and the human nature torn between the two sides. For those who love the style of the game, Diablo 2 has become the golden standard for many years. It gives the player a hunger to continually become better with a more advanced character in a circle that repeats every upgrade.
Admittedly, with the advancement of the 2D gaming world, and the fact that at least Diablo XNUMX was technically limited to games that looked significantly better from other genres as well - a famine was born, a new diablo hungry, a game that implemented new technologies and provided a more modern experience. Admittedly, a host of events led to the cancellation of Development Diablo 3 by the original team (which was due out around 2005) and only after a few years in 2012 did we get Diablo 3 a little different, developed by a completely different team at Blizzard.
Aside from the late launch mess, Diablo 3 moved significantly away from Diablo 2's style and so the jury game community broke up when a large portion simply refused to accept Diablo 3 as a true successor. "The graphics are too colorful and joyful," "the depth-less game" and "the gameplay is not fun" are common complaints among those who gave up Diablo. Right here, racing seems to have begun to find games that would fill the hole created by Diablo 3. This, although your loyal slave may think Diablo 3, at least today, is a pretty fun game, despite its drawbacks.
This article is mainly devoted to games that, in my opinion, are considered Diablo's successors, inspirational, or at least come as a substitute for those looking for archery hunting and character advancement.
The same hole, which for many exists even today, creates a big vacuum to which many game keys are drawn and as a result we are actually experiencing a real renaissance, beyond a situation where there may be one or two substitutions to the situation where new titles are announced within days and weeks of their aim to attract The ARPG genre enthusiasts with real-time battles on its issues.
Of course it is very important to note what is considered by many today to be the spiritual pursuit of Diablo 2 and one of the most popular ARPG games of our time - Path of Exile, a free game developed by a New Zealand studio called Grinding Gear Games.
The failure of Diablo 3's public perception along with the success of Path of Exile marks a clear thing - You can make a serious replacement for Diablo and do it successfully. The race for successful ARPG games has begun and everyone wants a piece of the cake.
The Wolcen game: Lords of Mayhem Developed for several years by Wolcen Studios and uses the engineCrytek The sparkly.

Last Epoch game Developed by Eleventh Hour Games, the emphasis is mainly on the amount of possibilities given to the player in a particularly large world, which exists simultaneously in two different timelines that the hero can visit in order to experience certain areas in two ways.

Unexpectedly and unexpectedly, Microsoft-owned Swedish Mojang decided to take Minecraft's world to Diablo with a brand new ARPG game Named Minecraft Dungeons.

The game is set to arrive this spring, so we are expected to meet it between March and June.
The Torchlight games series is the brainchild of Max Schaefer, one of Diablo and Diablo 2.'s original creators. These games are more clinging to game elements over a perpetual hunter of objects with picturesque graphics and joy. Now Max's studio developer, Echtra Games is playing a new series called Frontiers that wants to become more complex and updated. Torchlight Frontier does not yet have a launch date but it is expected to go out into the air "somewhere in 2020".
The Lost Ark game is a bit unusual on the list. This is a Korean MMO ARPG game which is in beta. We know it will be launched in Korea and other countries like Russia, but we have not yet received official approval for English launch in the West (Europe, America). It's a game with rich graphics and a fairly large world that combines things that usually meet in MMORPG games such as various professions (fisherman, division) along with Dynasty Warriors fights (relying on standby attacks, a large number of enemies flying each attack).
At this time, a gray cloud is over the game's launch in the West and if the prospects for faster advancement of characters by paying in the virtual store are removed, most Western industry has stepped up but defends that considered standard in Korea and Russia.
