**Customization options in Diablo IV**
Are you tired of limited customization options when playing video games? Look no further than Diablo IV, the upcoming installment in the Diablo franchise. Blizzard recently released a video showcasing the various customization options available for players to ensure their characters are unique in the game’s fantasy world of Sanctuary.
Unlike previous games in the franchise, Diablo IV offers a character creator that allows players to control their appearance, including a wide range of hair options for Black players beyond the typical choices like fade, dreadlocks, afro, or cornrows. The character creator also accounts for a variety of body types and conditions, such as the inclusion of vitiligo.
Lead game producer Melissa Corning explained that the goal of the character creator was to be as diverse and inclusive as possible while still reflecting the unique Diablo flair. The game’s skill tree and paragon board also allow for extensive class customization, with rare and legendary nodes that significantly upgrade specific spells or abilities.
Lead class designer Adam Jackson acknowledges that the game’s class system can seem overwhelming to new players, and the team is continuing to look at ways to make it more accessible. However, the skill tree slowly opens up, giving players more complex and intricate choices building on a few critical early ones.
To help players choose their desired fantasy, the game offers a pop-up that shows the different types of fantasies that can be chased for each class. This includes options for druids, such as being a werewolf, werebear, earth caster, or storm caster.
While players may stumble around the skill tree and paragon board, picking skills that don’t synergize well, the ability to respec makes it easy to forge a custom path and build.
Overall, Diablo IV provides an extensive range of customization options that ensure no two sorcerers, necromancers, druids, rogues, or barbarians are the same. The game is set to launch on June 6th, offering a unique and exciting experience for players of all backgrounds and preferences.
