It’s been a long wait but it looks like it’s going to be worth it!
Diablo and Diablo 2 is the game that “redefined” the RPG industry standard and it looks like Blizzard has struck another deal with the devil and delivered yet another gem.
The basic background behind the 3rd installment is that twenty years have passed since the cataclysmic events of Diablo II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have had their asses handed to them, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, has been destroyed, and evil mofos once again stirs in Tristram…. wooooooo scary shit!!!
Blizzard Entertainment have launched the game’s official website, with information about the places, characters, monsters, and adventures awaiting our return to the world of Sanctuary. Some of the site’s highlights include:
The cinematic teaser trailer shown at the 2008 Worldwide Invitational
A 20-minute gameplay demo video
More than 60 screenshots and pieces of concept art
Deckard Cain’s journal, narrated by Deckard Cain himself — stay a while and listen!
And lots of other cool stuff!
