Monster Power Mode is a mode yet to be announced by Blizzard for Diablo III.
This mode will allow players to set their own difficulty level...
How does this work? If you are with 2 dedicated strong players, you may set the difficulty to that of 3 players, whilst only 2 players are present. This way Blizzard will serve the more casual player, but also the hardcore player. Basically Monster Power Mode gives the player control about the difficulty of their game.
Of course, raising the difficulty will also raise the loot quality and amount. Also, harder difficulty will increase XP earned and gold received. A system similar to this was already used in Diablo II, and Blizzard now plans to add it into their latest game Diablo III as well. The mode should be released in the upcoming patch, 1.05.
Diablo 3 designer Wyatt Cheng says the following about the current state of the game: “As the game’s been out for awhile now, we’re finding players are stratifying into different audiences. You’ve got your player who has 1,000 hours played on their character, they have absolutely amazing gear, and they need more of a challenge. And then you have somebody else who just hit 60 last week for the first time because they’ve been playing for one or two hours a week since it came out and they’ve been having a blast but they’re just rolling into Inferno now. They don’t like to use the auction house, they don’t read the Internet, so what does the experience need to be like for that person? Monster Power definitely gives us a bit of room to try and simultaneously hit both types of players and everybody in between.”
If this will give the new surge of life to Diablo III that it needs, is to be seen. It seems like a smart system to have both audiences pleased, however you cannot describe it as new content, it's just another implemented system.
Will this be a reason for you to pick up the game again?
