*OFFICIAL* Diablo 3 Thread

post #1 of 127
Thread Starter 

Updated: July the 3th

Since there are bound to be many threads on D3, I'll keep this one updated with the latest and greatest.





Release Date:
Quote:
It's too early to estimate Diablo III's release date. As with all Blizzard Entertainment games, our goal is to create a game that is as fun, balanced, and polished as possible. We intend to take as much time developing Diablo III as is necessary to ensure the game meets our own high expectations and those of our players.



PC/Mac Requirements:
Quote:
We'll announce specific system requirements at a later date.

Will Diablo III be playable over Battle.net? :
Quote:
Yes, Diablo III will be playable over Battle.net, and Battle.net will offer some exciting new features to enhance players' Diablo III experience. We'll announce specifics and go into much more detail at a later date.
(Meaning NO "pay to play" since Battle.Net is a free service)



Storyline:
Quote:
It has been twenty years since the events of Diablo II. Of those who faced the Lords of Hatred, Terror, and Destruction in the battle over the fate of Sanctuary, there are few still living who can bear to remember the horrors that the Prime Evils wrought upon the world. And of those who did not witness the terrible events firsthand, most believe the stories to be little more than myth. But something evil is stirring once again in Tristram, and it may already have claimed its first victim: Deckard Cain.

*gasp*

Never...never played a Diablo game?! Wow, I didn't think such people exhisted! =P

With Diablo, like other games (C&C, WoW, EQ, etc) its definately a Love It or Hate It kind of game. I grew up on Diablo2. I remember playing Diablo1 and standing in line to get Diablo2 the day it came out. Fast forward 10 years or however long its been and I still have it installed on my computer, and I still play it. Besically its my game of choice.

As for the "Whens it coming out?" I think a good solid Fall/Hollidays '09. Gawd thats going to be a long ass wait. I just have to try to forget about the game and it will come faster. Kind of like christmas...*cough*

THEY HAD BETTER BRING THE SORCERESS BACK. Thats all I have to say. Oh, and a Paladin-type toon.

And I'll totally pay a subscription free for this, no sweat, btw.

Wow my first online addiction revisited
post #10 of 127
God.. Blizzard is simply just the greatest PC Game maker in the business. Hands down.. they know how to market their games so amazingly.. and it of course helps that all of the games they release, are amazing.

I <3 Blizzard. I can't wait for WoW Wrath of the Lich King, Starcraft 2, or Diablo 3.

I hate this waiting.
