Introduced by Blizzard Entertainment, Diablo 3 comes as the third part of the Diablo franchise. It is an action role-playing video game. It broke all records and became the fastest selling computer game within a few hours of its release at popular sites like Amazon.com and sold 3.5 million copies on the day of its release.

The plot of the game is attention-grabbing and very interesting which is because the game has a certain story to tell. The main characters are Nephalem, Leah and Tyrael. A lot of other characters also exist but the story of the game basically revolves around these three. The highlight of the plot is a Black Soulstone that can capture souls of the seven Lords of Hell. Diablo is the negative character and after having all seven souls within him, becomes the Prime Evil, the most dominant demon ever. He starts attacking the High Heavens and his aim is to destroy the Crystal Arch that is the source of power for all angels of the Heavens. The story is about the adventures of the three main characters and how they plan to save High Heavens from the Prime Evil- Diablo.

Diablo 3 offers five character classes. Unlike Diablo 1 and 2, where each class had to play a fixed gender, Diablo 3 lets players choose the gender they want to play. These five characters are:
  • Witch doctor- This witch has more of traditional skills as compared to the necromancer of Diablo 2. These skills are related to voodoo culture and shamanism. This character can summon monsters, harvest souls, throw explosives and poisons at enemies and cast curses.
  • Barbarian- The resource of this character is fury. It has a variety of skills which are based on its unbelievable physical prowess. He can move through crowds like a tornado, leap across huge crags, grapple-snap opponents into melee ranges, crush enemies upon landing and slice through swarms. The fury is generated by getting attacked or by attacking foes.
  • Wizard- This character has close resemblance with the sorcerer of Diablo and the sorceress of Diablo 2. The wizard can shoot lightening, ice and fire at enemies, slow down time and teleport through walls and past enemies.
  • Monk- This one is a melee enemy who uses martial arts to deflect projectiles, resist damage, and cripple foes and attack at lightning speed. The fuel of the monk’s powers is spirit.
  • Demon hunter- Hatred and discipline are the fuels of this character that is a combination of elements of Diablo 2’s assassin and amazon classes. Crossbows is the main weapon of this character.
All in all, Diablo 3 is on the list of the ten highest selling video games of all times and this makes it a must have for all children.
