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

G4TV has posted a new preview and video footage of Diablo III, the much anticipated next installment of the popular action RPG series from Blizzard Entertainment. The preview focuses on player vs. player combat in the game which takes the form of the Arena system.

Arena is a place where you can battle other players without consequences. Your corpse won't get looted, and you won't drop a level. Developer Jason Bender said they may be supporting leaderboards and other ways to rank players in the Arena, but you won't be heading in there to find epic trinkets. "We don't want this to be the way you get loot," Bender said. In fact, the only real consequence of Arena is the hardcore mode, where if you fall in battle your character gets erased forever. It's pretty much just for bragging rights, but Bender said they may explore some way to entire players into Hardcore Arena battles. With and their love of decals, I imagine that's where something will appear.
