Today Blizzard Entertainment aired a live stream about the upcoming RPG. devil 4during which the developers discussed a variety of topics.
First off, we get an overview of the endgame and world level mechanics, including the biggest challenge and the powerful items you’ll receive by taking on that challenge. Interestingly, when you get to world level 3, you have a chance to drop holy items.
