Diablo III Unveiled
Over the past week or so, Blizzard has had a new splash page hinting at a new game to be announced. Each day, the page was adjusted slightly to give more hints. Speculation ran wild as to what the game would be, as there were hints from literally every game series Blizzard has released, even the SNES Lost Vikings. Well now the game has been revealed: Diablo III.
Twenty years have passed since the cataclysmic events of Diablo® II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, 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 once again stirs in Tristram....
Following the unveiling of Diablo III today at the Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational, we've launched the game's official website, with information about the places, characters, monsters, and adventures awaiting you upon your 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 much, much more
"We've wanted to expand on the epic story and gameplay elements of the Diablo universe for some time now," stated Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "We know that players have also been long awaiting a return to the series, so we're very excited to be sharing this announcement with Blizzard gamers here in Paris and around the world today."
Are you ready to take on the evils that threaten even the heavens?
