Some new information regarding the highly anticipated Diablo 4 has been revealed by developer Blizzard. In a planned series of quarterly updates, Blizzard gave us information about the game's interface and controller support options. We also witnessed the first appearance of a new monster family called the Cannibals.

These newly introduced Cannibals only perform melee attacks, however they are quite fast. They will be able to leap over obstacles to close gaps as fast as possible. You will have to be extra careful around them.

Inventory design of Diablo 4 went through some pretty big changes as well. The previous “painterly style” design has been replaced by a more visually realistic design. Brightness and saturation are reduced a little bit, and border decoration has been added. Do keep in mind that Diablo 4 is still in development and more changes will be made as time goes by. "We hope to both home in on our goal of a gritty, realistic UI, while balancing ease of use," Lead UI Designer Angela Del Priore said in the update. "As the inventory screen is something our players will probably interact with the most, we really appreciate your feedback in this area."

The action bar of the game also went through some tweaks, and was situated in the bottom-left corner of the screen. After feedback from fans, it was moved back to the center. PC players can choose if they want the action bar at the bottom-left or center of the screen.

"The preferred position changes to the left-corner when people play further away from the screen. This doesn’t come as a surprise given the shift in viewing angle (illustrative diagram below not to scale), but it does mean that the center configuration isn’t a majority winner on PC since we’re supporting controller input," Del Priore explained. "So, while we will only stick to the corner configuration on consoles, we will offer both left and center positions as options on PC."
