Devilian shows off Shadowhunter class and devil form

Action-RPG Devilian is cranking up its hype machine, with a pair of informative dev blogs posted this past week about the game’s features.

The first is a succinct post about the Shadowhunter class. The Shadowhunter uses whips and shurikens to wreck its enemies’ day and can specialize in run-and-gun, stealth, or AoE mechanics. The team also talked about Devilian’s signature hook: “Once you’ve harvested enough devil souls, you’ll have the power to enter devil form, which has a distinct set of abilities and its own unique equipment with which to battle.”

Trion Worlds also posted a one-hour livestream with the devs in which they showed off the game’s pre-alpha build and demonstrated the devil form transformation. Check it out for yourself after the break!

It’s going to take something pretty impressive in the ARPG department to pull me away from the beautiful environments, great voice acting, and general overall quality of Path of Exile.
I doubt this is it. But I will of course try it out just to make sure. :P

Looks more suited for smartphones/tablet than PC.

So from the little we know, it seems that this is, in fact, a Diablo-style MMO which is fine.  I’m interested to know more.  

However, the management of the game is really key for me after having experienced the Trion debacle known as ArchAge as a patron.  Trion needs to show me how they are going to improve server management at launch and beyond.  How they are going to deal with cheats, hacks and exploits.  And, how they are not going to use the blanket ban policies they tried in AA that ended up banning innocent players.

In principle the idea of having a diablo style MMO isn’t bad, imo. But it needs two things:
1) meaningful PVE
2) a proper game world

If it’s just about PVP or all small rooms connected by load screens, then I’ll /pass

The difference supposedly will be that it’s a diablo clone crossed with typical pvp sandbox features like guild vs guild castles, opvp areas and the like.
Not a terrible idea, I’m reserving judgment until I see more.

Cannot understand these companies. I might be missing information here, but who would invest in old ideas, targeting borderline saturated markets, with old implementations and absolutely nothing to tell it apart from the competition?
