BlizzCon 2010: Diablo III Demon Hunter Reveal Cinematic

by on October 24, 2010

The fifth and final Diablo III class was revealed at this year’s BlizzCon and it was none other than the Demon Hunter. The reveal cinematic depicts a bad-ass female character taking on hordes of demonic enemies with an array of deadly toys.

Warcraft fans will immediately identify similarities shared with the banshee queen Sylvanas and will certainly relish the opportunity to wield such a good looking class.

So why the Demon Hunter?

Blizzard: When we set out to create the fifth class, we knew we wanted to add another ranged character to the game. However, we also wanted to create a class that was more sinister than the typical ranger archetype. In the end, we came up with a character who has a personal vendetta against the demons and who will stop at nothing to eradicate every last trace of evil in Sanctuary. While the Demon Hunter primarily uses traditional ranged weaponry such as bows, crossbows, or even dual-wielded one-handed crossbows, the class is also incredibly proficient with gadgetry, traps, and deadly grenades. The demon hunter has dedicated an entire lifetime to training to destroy demons, and few can rival her skill.
