Diablo Archives

Diablo is a series of action role-playing hack and slash games developed by Blizzard North and continued by Blizzard Entertainment after the North studio shut down in 2005. The series is made up of three core games: Diablo, II, and III. Expansions to the series include HellfireReaper of Souls, and Immortal. The series is set in the fantasy world of Sanctuary and the three main games share several areas including the town of Tristram and the region around Mount Arreat. The series focuses on the conflict between the humans living on Sanctuary and the Prime Evils, demons who are led by Diablo, the series' primary antagonist. The humans are occasionally aided by angels, notably the archangel of justice, Tyrael. The characters in the world of Sanctuary are primarily humans, angels, and various classes of demons and monsters.
