    I downloaded it. Too bad I have no website design talent whatsoever :(

    But the kit is really bad-ass...

    Doesn't Blizzard release one of these for each of there games anymore?


    Actually doesn't every major company release one of these for there games anymore?


    I assume there is something special in the kit?... If not then why is it news, as it should simply be expected from a large company like Blizzard....

    It's something new on the official site. New things are considered news.


    Anyway the kit has a lot of cool stuff, didn't spot anything new so far but it's pretty neat.

    I think these artworks are new. Shame on me if they are actually old.



    I'm not sure about this screenshot though, it may be old I just don't recognise it.


    And this small image is an avatar of someone or something I don't recognise either. Seems to just be generic undead.

    The rest is definitely new though, right?

    Have I just seen Pit Flyer Spawner? I hat those "spawner" things, like the act1 bird nest or the act2 plague bearer sarcophaz.45$? what ever and the evil globlins hut in act5. I think that they sucked, tho they will make a return in 3 i believe...

    And am I alone to think that the Goatman now have a badass stance? In D1 and 2, they were like standing on the legs and we felt like they were walking for the first time of their lives, now, they feel so much agiile and strong, love it.

    A lot of that looks new, especially that pit flayer thing, and always glad to see more Triune information! ^_^

    The last female avatar is just concept art for the Wizard.

    And good to know I don't have to feel shame, lol. The Triune are definitely gonna be a major part of DIII.

    The one looks like a true wizard, and the other one looks pretty rogue-ish!
  • #13 Siaynoq
    Atru, I'd be very interested to see you make your own fansite.

    there is a file named "Diablo III Fact Sheet" into the kit that says: "New quest system and character-customization options for the ultimate action-RPG experience."
    what kind of customizations are these? only the gender?
  • #15 Switch
    have never seen this artwork before, I love the Triune guy.
    makes me curious about some possible implementation of the "cathedral of light' too.

    I sure hope they will follow some lore from the sin war books. And I'm especially curious about that whole Ureh "kingdom of shadow" concept.

    I guess I just kind of expected a site kit like WoW or SC2 or any other major game on the market today...


    This does mean one thing though, they are closer yet to releasing it if they are at the stage where they release the fansite kit.

    The pack contains high-resolution concept art pieces that can't be found anywhere else, also completely new concept pieces that weren't even seen in the trailer. It qualifies as 'news' as any other site update so far. Though no one has mentioned that the Tristram page was also updated.

    So it's not really the fansite kit that any big name company is pretty much expected to put out anymore, but the pictures that are the big news thing. So then why did something that every company does get the title and the new pictures comment not get it's own thread but instead get a mention in another thread?

    Either way:
    Yay! New Pictures!
    Yay! A fansite kit that every big name company puts out!
