Recently we told you how the Diablo III beta would probably start during Q3 2011, this has a lot of Diablo fans excited and now we have more goodies for you, a video recently showed up on VG247 which shows off the game’s new follower system.
We have embedded the video at the end of this post, we are led to believe that you can be joined on your quest by one of three companions, these are either a Enchantress, a Scoundrel or a Templar, once you have unlocked them all you will be able to swap them when you choose. Not only this but you will be able to customize the class to satisfy your needs, which should allow you to make your companion suit your style of play.
According to GNews your companion will never die, if they lose their hit points your companion will become incapacitated, this means you will have to battle it out alone for a while and then revive them once you the coast is clear.
The level of follower customization looks pretty in-depth and by the looks of thing Diablo III’s companions will be much more important and useful than Diablo II’s mercenaries ever were.
Check out the video below, do you think customizable followers will be a welcome addition?
