With Diablo 4 currently in the works, its developer Blizzard has been sharing updates on the highly-anticipated fourth installment regularly. As fans may be familiar, the new game will feature enemy tribes called monster families, all having their own characteristics and part to play in the storyline. In its latest post for Q1 of 2020, the company has revealed a new family of monsters called the Cannibals, which appear to have come from a former tribe of barbarians. The family will consist of four different enemy types, all of which are melee attackers, which makes sense given their aggressive and feral personalities.
According to Blizzard’s official description of the new enemy type:
“Corpses riddled with bite marks. Splintered bones scraped clean of marrow. Tongues sawed off and eyes gouged out of their skulls. These are the bloody fingerprints the Cannibals leave behind—if they leave behind anything at all. No one is certain where they come from, but some legends claim they are a former tribe of barbarians, banished from Arreat years ago. Whether their cannibalism led to their exile or developed out of desperation afterward is unknown. The outcasts brought their endless hunger to the Dry Steppes, and from there spread to the far corners of the world to prey on lonesome caravans and unsuspecting villages.”
There’s currently no release date yet for Diablo 4, so fans of the franchise should stay tuned as more updates roll in.
