Diablo 3 wants you to bring some friends

Blizzard say the patch is designed to make multiplayer more streamlined:

“Multiplayer can be lot of fun, but given the downsides it can often feel not worth

the effort. By making it easier for players to find one another, improving social

features, and providing direct buffs to co-op groups, we hope to change that

perspective.”

Blizzard have revealed the details of Diablo 3′s forthcoming 1.0.8 update. While

they’ve previously hinted at long-term plans, including increased rarity for

Legendary and Rare items, the patch will instead concentrate on making the game a

better co-op experience. After all, as the old saying goes, “Hell is other people…

teaming up to biff their way through for loot.”
