Diablo 3 Barbarian Trailer Celebrates The one Man Army
Blizzard updated the launch site for Diablo 3 with another class preview today. This week they're focusing on the Barbarian, the token meathead class of the action RPG. They've released a trailer providing both gameplay footage of the class as well as an overview of their story.
"The barbarians. Mighty warriors whose strength and ferocity are a match for any foe, whether slavering beast or foul demon, " says Blizzard. "Tall, broad, and rippling with muscle, the barbarian can bear a heavy weapon too large for a commoner to lift, or wield two full-sized armaments—one in each hand—with wickedly lethal purpose. In the wild and monstrous lands of Sanctuary, there is nothing more frightening than a barbarian with a dry blade. "
The Barbarian is one of two melee-oriented classes in the game, the other being the Monk. The Barbarian will be more appealing to those of you who want to be able to take and deal a lot of damage. They're probably the closest thing that the game has to a tank class, though roles are a lot more fluid in D3 than in MMO's.
Diablo 3 will be released next month. In the weeks between then and now, Blizzard plans to release exclusive content through the game's launch site.
