Diablo III Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The Armchair Empire has posted a new preview of Diablo III, the much anticipated next installment of the popular action RPG series from Blizzard Entertainment. The preview offers an overview of what is currently known about the character classes, rune system, artisan abilities, and inventory management in the upcoming game.

One area that was a nagging concern for gamers in Diablo II was the inventory, as it tended to get filled up pretty fast, especially if you were a pack rat, requiring players to constantly warp back to town to unload all of their goods at the vendor. In this game, Blizzard appears to be taking some steps to remedy the problem. The main inventory doesn't look vastly bigger than its predecessor, but there is now something called a talisman, where players can hold up to 13 charms. I remember constantly getting bogged down by these charms in Diablo II, so this will be a very welcome change being able to shunt quite a few to another area entirely. It's important to note, also, that players only receive the stat bonuses of charms when they are placed in the talisman. They have no effect when just sitting in inventory. Finally there is the stash, adventurers' trusty chest for dumping heaps of goodies and gold into. We don't know just how much we'll be able to fit into them yet, but Blizzard does promise it'll be "huge".
