Blizzard has today introduced the Enchantress, the Scoundrel and the Templar to the world of Diablo III. But they’re not new character classes (we’ve got five, and five’s all we’re going to get).
Instead, these are the new “followers”, the co-op companions who will join you in the upcoming dungeon crawler.
Think of them as the Diablo III equivalent of the hirelings you played with in Diablo II. This time around, each companion will bring you extra skills, depending on their level.
…and it gets better: Gone are the days where you could kit your minions out with armour, helm and weapon. In Diablo III, the Followers can also try on amulets and rings, and enjoy the appropriate benefits.
As mentioned earlier this week, Diablo III still has no concrete release date, but we’re anticipating a playable beta by the end of the year.
