Blizzard has just released a video of the Diablo 3 Follower system from their new top down action RPG Diablo 3 news. Those who played Diablo 2 will be a bit familiar with the system, as the Followers from D3 are basically the new and improved version of a hireling from D2. According to an interview from NowGamer with Diablo 3 game director Jay Wilson, Blizzard wanted to build the Followers up to new heights.

There are three distinct types of Followers that you can level up and customize based on your play style: Kormac the Templar, Lyndon the Scoundrel, and Eirena the Enchantress. Each Follower can be equipped with rings, amulets, weapons and a unique item. For example, a Templar has a holy tome while an enchantress gets something else to use.
Read on to find out everything you want to know about the new Follower system in Diablo 3. Trust me when I say it’s very cool.
Followers won’t be able to equip nearly as many items as players can according to Wilson, and the most important thing will be their weapon. The weapons aren’t exclusive to the Followers, so you’ll have to decide if you want your character or your Follower to have weapons, but usually they won’t be using the same type of weapon your character will be so it won’t be too much of an issue. Wilson uses the example of a player choosing the Barbarian class who uses two-handed weapons like axes and Lyndon as his Follower who would use a crossbow and daggers, so the two wouldn’t conflict too much.
