After being the worst kept secret in the industry for several years, Diablo IV has finally been revealed at Blizzcon 2019. Aside from the first CGI and gameplay trailers, Blizzard also revealed details on three of the five character classes that will be available in the game – and out of these, the most exciting announcement was probably the Druid.

Of course, the Druid was a class that was last seen in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, and was totally absent from Diablo III – constantly the class’ return in Diablo IV, filling one of the only five slots available, is a major deal.

Indeed, according to game director Luis Barriga, the Druid originally, “was not part of our original line-up for Diablo IV. That lasted about a day.” What changed the production team’s minds was a cool piece of artwork showing the druid as a large, tough, imposing, skull-clad figure flanked by two intimidating wolves. “The art inspires the design of this game,” adds Barriga.
