>Diablo III to get Team Deathmatch, Achievements
>D3 was already rumored to have an Arena mode and last year had playable TDM with 3v3. That has been upped to 4v4 now and the rules are more fleshed out. You will wait 3 seconds to spawn after you die and the team with the most kills after a certain time frame wins. Before the match you can tweak your build for PVP, but won’t be able to change it during. You can also pull any character in after respawning.
Blizzard also announced an extensive achievement system for the game. Some achievements will reward you with more designs and looks for your banner. Your banner is a kind of crest you carry with you in multiplayer games. The more ornate it is, the higher your stature. Some achievements involve punching a boss to death with your fists.
Also revealed was the extent of the items available in each difficulty. 70% of the games items are only available outside normal difficulty. This is a good thing and exactly what most players should want. The challenge of the higher difficulties should give better and more unique loot. it seems this will be the case.
We will post more news as it comes available!
