Diablo IV opens the Dark Gallery to showcase dark locales of the dark ARPG

Diddly-dark, it's diddly-dark, it's dark

Dare you stare into the heart of darkness that is Diablo IV’s Dark Gallery? Beware, reader. You can’t just look at these pictures. You must harden yourself like a true hardcore gamer, numb your senses to anything resembling pity and remorse, and then… then maybe you can look upon these dark works.

The Diablo IV team has opened up a gallery that will be periodically updated with images from within the game and concept artwork, granting fans eager for the flavor of extremely serious spookiness the opportunity to sup upon the ichorous blackness that is Diablo IV. Thematic over-importance aside, the gallery does provide a great look at the upcoming ARPG and its overall style.

You can check out the gallery on Facebook, on Twitter, or in the gallery below. But only if you’re truly dark enough. We’ll even provide you with some suitable background music.

Nice! Now I’m even more in peace with my decision to not purchase it. Looks like I’ll not miss much.

2021 as an optimistic guess for the release date. Now I wish they didn’t announce it. Looking forward to it.

So Diablo goes full Scandinavia.

They should showcase release date in the next few months. Till then I’ll play Lost Ark – which is actually great (outside of the part where its combat isn’t exactly ARPG-ish due to multiple cooldowns and mana/energy limits).

agemyth 😩

The vignetting is heavy enough that I would turn that off if it were like that in the final game (and if it were an option). The graphics are better (obviously) but if this game didn’t have the Diablo name on it I would say it looks generic.

maybe because diablo defined the “generic” style for Hack n’ Slays?

I thought that was Balder’s Gate.

Baldur’s Gate isn’t a Hack n’ Slay and the titles had very different settings. Their vibes very different, as is their combat and character progression. I won’t go into details, though, you might to want to play both of them to see the obvious differences.

I’ll wait for part 3, Grimdawn is about as retro as I’m willing to go.

This looks MUCH better. Less stylistic/cartoony than D3, which pleases me.

Yeah, the only thing that isn’t black, gray, or brown is the fire. Whoohoo! It looks like the smear left on toilet paper after wiping your ass. What a great look! LOL I hope all you guys that bitched about the D3 look are happy.

I am definitely happy with this look. Certainly better than the ice cream stand style that D3 had.

Except not really. Colors are duller compared to D3, which helps a lot, and they’re not just gray/brown/black. Beyond that, they’ve taken a less stylistic approach that better jives with the darker atmosphere.

I complained about D3’s art direction, and I’m happy with this. Seems like most Diablo fans are from what I’m seeing. Thanks for your concern!

Just play some Grimdawn for a few years, tons of player Mods out there that either add Diablo classes or even recreates some of the games.
