Blizzard announced this weekend that Diablo 3 has been in development since the days of Blizzard North and the game is set twenty years after that of Diablo 2. The world will be creepy and beautiful with amazing ambience and sound effects. It will be fully rendered in 3D and will feature several, all-new characters including the Witch Doctor. Additionally, old favorites, like the Barbarian, have been tweaked and re-imagined for the new go-‘round.
Top it all off with even better online play including co-op and you’ve got the sequel everyone has been dreaming of. Blizzard has not set a release date yet, as they never rush they’re products, but whenever it does come out we expect gamers by the millions to put down their controllers and dungeon-crawl with a mouse and a keyboard. Here’s a bunch of information from the official Blizzard Diablo 3 section including the teaser trailer:
Two decades have passed since the demonic denizens, Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, wandered the world of Sanctuary in a vicious rampage to shackle humanity into unholy slavery. Yet for those who battled the Prime Evils directly, the memory fades slowly and the wounds of the soul still burn.
When Deckard Cain returns to the ruins of Tristram’s Cathedral seeking clues to new stirrings of evil, a comet from the heavens strikes the very ground where Diablo once entered the world. The comet carries a dark omen in its fiery being and it calls the heroes of Sanctuary to defend the mortal world against the rising powers of the Burning Hells – and even the failing luminaries of the High Heavens itself.
