A Closer Look at the Diablo 4 Season 2 Trailer Fallout

The surprising backlash to Diablo 4's Season 2 trailer as Blizzard removes the video after multiple apparent errors and inconsistencies were discovered by avid gamers.

In a sudden and unexpected turn of events, Diablo 4's Season 2 trailer was abruptly removed from the game's official Twitter account. This development was met with shock and surprise by the gaming community. The reason? It turns out that the video was rife with errors and inconsistencies.

Diablo 4 had its grand launch and climbed to impressive heights in the gaming charts. However, the title from Blizzard, a highly-anticipated release, fell from grace swiftly. These pitfalls arose largely due to the fact that players felt let down by the lack of substantial content in the first season. It appeared to be merely fodder to pass the time until the release of the game's second season.

In the lead up to the release of the second season, Blizzard launched a new trailer to shed light on the enhancements that the Season of Blood intends to introduce. However, mere moments after the video was posted, it was hastily taken down due to glaring inaccuracies.

Season 2 Trailer: A Catalog of Mistakes

The Season of Blood is expected to go live on October 17. Apart from the exciting narrative content already mentioned, there are also various quality of life alterations that seem promising on the surface.

The trailer provided glimpses of several upcoming changes including dungeon reworks, alteration to Seasonal Blessings, and mounted buffs. These changes were initially received positively by dedicated gamers.

However, the positivity was short-lived when an observant Diablo 4 player noticed that the portrayal of these changes was completely nonsensical. One player, Raxxanterax, took it upon himself to dissect the video and highlight its many flaws in his own 4-minute video.

Highlighting the Blunders

The video kicked off by discussing the proposed dungeon reworks. In an attempt to compare the old and new dungeon layouts side-by-side, Blizzard ended up causing confusion by mixing up the layouts.

Player mounts are anticipated to become faster in Season 2, which was highlighted with a comparison to the current speed of the mounts. However, Raxxanterax pointed out that the comparison video made it impossible to distinguish any difference, essentially making the entire comparison redundant.

Lastly, Blizzard attempted to explain how Seasonal Blessings could impact player progression. Despite Season 2 set to feature an altered system, the mathematical explanation provided in the video was so inaccurate that it left players clueless about the actual impact of these Seasonal Blessings.

A Comedic Turn of Events

Raxxanterax's response was filled with laughter as he critiqued all the mistakes. Despite his amusement, he also offered to help Blizzard correct the slides before the upcoming BlizzCon in a constructively critical manner.

Even though the upcoming gaming season shows promise, the poorly executed trailer didn't do much to help build anticipation in the fanbase. With the trailer promptly removed from official channels, many are left hoping that Blizzard is now working on a more accurate and clear explainer.
