As any role playing game, you have to level up in Diablo III. You progress through the story by completing quests. The new additions in Diablo III are the character specific quests and random adventures. This allows you to indulge in many memorable journeys, thus giving you longer game time. Many small and big improvements have been introduced in the game, including the health orbs that now fall from slayed enemies.
Diablo III has 5 main classes. These include Witch Doctor: He can summon undead monsters, The Barbarian: a brute-force fighter, The Wizard: he is a master at combining stealth and magic, The Monk: a specialist in melee based attacks and The Demon Hunter: he can combine different attacks. The game also includes followers. The followers are special as they can wield a weapon, two rings and a special item exclusive only to them. The 3 followers are Kormac the Templar, Eirena the Enchantress and Lyndon the Scoundrel.
Diablo III also allows the players to create hard core characters. You will be able to create one after your charecter advances to level 10. As they are a special addition, you cannot resurrect them if they are dead.
One of the eagerly awaited and most talked about addition in the game includes the Auction House. The Auction House allows you to buy items by paying real money. This assists you to advance faster through the game. You can also use in-game gold to level-up your character.
You can play games with other players from around the world using the Battle.net service. This multiplayer option allows you to drop in and out of sessions easily.
