    What do I need to know before I start playing Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition

    Hi guys,

    I've never played a Diablo game before, but I'm getting Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition for my PS4 tomorrow

    However, I'm a little bit worried that I won't understand the story. Could someone give me an easy to understand (for a noob like me) summary of the storyline so I'm prepared for Diablo III? And are there other things (like tips) I need to know before playing?

    Thx!

    I finished Diablo 3 on the PS3 and I can't remember much so it'll be a basic understanding from what I can remember

    don't open the spoiler if you don't wanna ruin stuff!

    I tried typing up a paragraph, it ended up being a sloppy mess. Diablo is very deep in lore & has great animated scenes explaining the story, It was one of my favorite parts of the original games. To get a good handle on it my suggestion is watch the YouTube video that shows all the cinematics of Diablo I & II. Take a gander.

    If you want to dig deeper this should fill all your needs, http://diablo.gamepedia.com/Lore_Summary

    Good luck in Sanctuary my friend.

    Yes I did, but it's nice to get a short description of Diablo III too

    I just picked p D3 Ultimate Evil edition today so I haven't started playing that yet but as far as D1 and 2 yes. The story was always decent at best but it serves as a catalyst for the looting and exploring. Looting and exploring is the very essence of D1 and 2 and I imagine 3 as well. I'll be able to give you more on that as far as 3 goes once I've put in a few hours.

    For me the Diablo series was awesome story/lore and gameplay but Diablo 3 was a massive disappointment in the story/lore and after i got enough of the gameplay i just said goodbye to the game after a month. A Month may sound like a lot to some people to spend on a game but i played Diablo 1 for like 5 years because of how awesome it was back then. If you have never played a Diablo game and only care about loot and killing lots of enemies on screen in cool ways then Diablo 3 should be a great game for you.
