BlizzCon 2008 Diablo Panels Revealed

  • #1
    The official BlizzCon 2008 website has been launched revealing some of the Diablo III panels to be showcased by Blizzard developers at the event. Based on the description of the Class Design it is certain they plan to unveil more classes besides the Barbarian and the Witch Doctor.
    One of the highlights of any BlizzCon is the opportunity to sit down with Blizzard Entertainment developers to discuss new game features and delve into the development process behind your favorite games. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the developer panels we’ll be hosting at BlizzCon 2008. Check back in the weeks ahead as we add more panels to the list.

    Diablo III Class Design
    You’ve witnessed the raw physical power of the barbarian and the terrifying alchemy and diseases of the witch doctor. Now you can learn more about these heroes -- and see if any other champions emerge to defend the mortal world.

    Diablo III Game Design
    Get a detailed look at the design and development process behind the visceral gameplay of Diablo III. We’ll explore the influence previous Diablo games have had, as well as the new and exciting features the upcoming sequel has to offer.

    Diablo III – Lore and Art
    From lore to spell effects, from creature design to quests -- sit down with our writers and artists as they discuss the creative process of building Diablo III’s rich world of Sanctuary.
