Diablo III No PvP At Launch


Those of you who are chomping at the bit to spam clicks on not only minions of Diablo or Diablo himself, but other players around the world will have to wait a bit longer. Jay Wilson, Diablo III’s Game Director, says, “the PvP game and systems aren’t yet living up to our standards.”

The bad news is, they are holding PvP back until after the launch of the game. The good news is, they want to refine it to make worth the experience because “delaying the whole game purely for PvP would just be punishing to everyone who’s waiting to enjoy the campaign and core solo/co-op content, all of which is just about complete.”

Blizzard seems to be going the extra mile with PvP. Wilson also says, “it will add multiple Arena maps with themed locations and layouts, PvP-centric achievements, and a matchmaking system that will help you and your team get into fairly matched games quickly and easily. We’ll also be adding a personal progression system that will reward you for successfully bashing in the other team’s skulls.”
