During BlizzConline 2021, Blizzard debuted a new trailer for Diablo IV. The trailer reveals the Rogue class, which will be included in the upcoming action-RPG at launch. In the new trailer, you can see the Rogue joining the other three available starting classes–Barbarian, Sorceress, and Druid–around a campfire. Just a group of adventurers being homies.
Like the other three, the Rogue class has been included in the Diablo franchise before. However, unlike the other three classes, the Rogue is one of the original character classes, existing alongside Warrior and Sorcerer in 1997’s Diablo. The Rogue hasn’t been seen since–it wasn’t included in Diablo II or Diablo III. The fifth class in Diablo IV has yet to be revealed.
The Rogue is a dexterity-based character class, with a versatile skill tree that allows you to master both melee and ranged attacks, as well as abilities that let you set traps or use shadow magic. So it sounds less like the original Rogue class and more like Diablo III’s Demon Hunter class, which is really just a loose combination of Diablo II’s Amazon and Assassin classes.
