Diablo 3: Patch 1.0.8 to Make Co-op Better

By   /   3 years ago

In a new post, Blizzard has admitted that Diablo 3’s co-op is currently not “living to its full potential”. Hence, with patch 1.0.8 they plan to make the co-op experience better.

Wyatt Cheng, senior technical game designer said:

Even if you enjoy playing with your friends, it can often feel easier and more efficient to play solo.” While playing with friends you may face certain disadvantages, “like having to coordinate where you’re walking and what you’re attacking, losing your followers, and trying to find groups that have similar goals to yours without a defined matchmaking system in place.

Whereas playing solo means you make your own choices, your own routes, farm your own gear and such.

The point is that multiplayer can be lot of fun, but given the downsides it can often feel not worth the effort,” he continued. “By making it easier for players to find one another, improving social features, and providing direct buffs to co-op groups, we hope to change that perspective.

Patch 1.0.8 will add matchmaking tags for public games, which will allow players to queue up according to their preferred roles. There will also be multiplayer bonuses that give you extra experience points for playing with others; a reduction in monster health, the addition of Identify All; combat alerts, such as Elite found’ and private chat.
