The game is set in the fictional world of Sanctuary, centred around the town of Tristram in the Kingdom of Khanduras. The protagonist is a lone hero who takes upon himself to find what is causing distress in the town's cathedral and is taken upon a journey that brings him down into the deep caves beneath the cathedral, all the way into Hell to combat Diablo, the Lord of Terror.
Blizzard's World of Warcraft is considered the grandfather of the modern MMORPG, and rightfully so. Many of the core mechanics which defined online multiplayer experiences were spawned from World of Warcraft. At the time of its release, the sheer scale of the world and level of immersion wowed audiences, and that has not changed. No matter the expansion, World of Warcraft's realms are some of the most expansive and diverse ever developed. Offering dozens of biomes, major locales and fortifications, the world's sheer size can easily rival that of most modern day continents.
