If you have been playing Rift Trials in Diablo 3 recently – despite the fact that most of us believe they need a lot of improvements – you are not going to be able to play them after some time.
We don’t know when, but the developers are going to remove them from the game.
Wyatt Cheng the Senior Technical Game Designer for the game at Blizzard Entertainment was recently a part of a Twitch broadcast where he was asked a few questions about certain features of the game and their future.
In this regard, he was also inquired about the Rift Trials and how they could be improved. However, instead of discussing improvements he started off bluntly saying that “the Trials are not good. We don’t like them. I don’t like them.”
You would understand where the conversation was going from there; he revealed that the developers will soon remove the feature from the Diablo 3.
I think it’s part of the natural iteration process. It solved a problem that we had before. And, I don’t want to defend Trials; I’m not going to defend Trials. I think that it is the latest in a sequence of events… and Trials will be getting removed from the game. I can’t tell you when. I can tell you that we already don’t have Trials in our internal builds. We’ve been playing around with it and testing it, and we are committed to removing them.
He said that they were still in the game only because Blizzard Entertainment had to work on certain problems that they first needed to take care of for example “what does legendary gem upgrading look like if we don’t have Trials.”
That is all for now, but keep checking back to know when exactly are Rift Trials going to vanish from Diablo 3.
