Blizzard Entertainment has outdone itself with its most recent title, Diablo IV, which has become their fastest-selling video game to date. To increase hype around the game, Blizzard enlisted the help of none other than Megan Fox to honour those players who share the deaths of their characters on social media.
Megan Fox, known for her roles in Transformers and other films, appears in the Diablo IV promo dressed as a vampire or succubus, surrounded by red candles, creating an eerie atmosphere that is perfect for one of the most terrifying games ever made. In the video, Fox reads out “eulogies” for players who’ve experienced the most epic deaths.
Fox isn’t just a pretty face for hire – she’s been a passionate gamer for over a decade, which makes her an ideal choice to promote the game. Along with the Diablo series, her love for video games has spanned across various titles.
Diablo is an action RPG game known for its dark fantasy world, addictive gameplay, and excellent art direction. The game is set in a grim medieval universe where players battle the forces of Hell, earning experience, skills, and equipment along the way. Players fight demons, monsters, ghosts, and other evil beings to overcome the eternal struggle between the powers of Heaven and Hell.
Diablo II and Diablo III expanded the franchise with new character classes, missions, and gameplay enhancements and further strengthened the narrative of the series.
Blizzard’s Warcraft franchise, which includes the first strategy games, MMORPG World of Warcraft, comics, novels, and board games, was also made into a movie, Warcraft: The First Meeting of Two Worlds. While there were rumors of an animated series based on the Diablo franchise by Netflix, there has been no news on whether the project was cancelled or still in development.
With the success of the new game, many fans are hoping to see more adaptations of Diablo on the big or small screen. For now, fans can enjoy the latest instalment of the game and look forward to seeing how the franchise evolves in the future.
