Diablo 3 Demands Your Internet
Remember the marketplaces mentioned earlier? Well, thanks to those as well as the full implementation of Battle.net, Diablo 3 will require constant internet connection during play. Like StarCraft 2, but newer!
Now down to the brass tacks of why. Rob Pardo detailed a list of reasons why, and let’s just say that it looks worth it.
This all makes the connection “issue” so worth the trouble.
Pardo was quick to dispel groans against mobile playing, saying,
“I want to play Diablo 3 on my laptop in a plane, but, well, there are other games to play for times like that.”
Oh, so you mean Diablo 2?
