Diablo 3 Gets Co-op Boost

According to senior technical game designer Wyatt Cheng, Blizzard are looking at improving the dynamics of co-op play as well as including features which will save time and improve on the game’s overall experience.

In a recent forum post, Cheng shared some details regarding the game's upcoming update.

"We are looking to improve co-op farming efficiency in 1.0.8,” says Cheng.

“Co-op play in general is a big focus of the 1.0.8 patch and efficiency is definitely one component of that. Co-op is already more efficient for some players, but this is the exception rather than the norm. The degree of co-op efficiency depends heavily on the co-ordination of the party, skill builds, and the relative gear level of the teammates”.

In addition to addressing the co-op experience, Blizzard also plans to address the problem of ‘Legendary’ item drops, which can be found here, as well as introduce new features to help streamline the experience.

"There are also a number of hurdles to co-op play beyond raw efficiency, so we'll be looking to alleviate/solve some of those hurdles too. The Identify All feature in 1.0.8 is an example of this. Sometimes the trip back to town to sort through a bag of gear is enough of a hurdle to make somebody feel playing co-op isn't worth it. Nobody wants to be in the dungeon fighting monsters while your teammate is off in town identifying a full inventory."

Blizzard has not confirmed when update 1.0.8 will become available on the public test realm or the date for its final release.
