1UP: As a bonus nostalgia kick, the demo had Deckard Cain. Are there any other nostalgic bits you can touch on? Will Wirt be the key to the cow level?RP: There is no cow level!
(NO PAYMENT SUBSCRIPTION) :thumbsup:
1UP: Speaking of the WOW experience, other action-RPG games have attempted a subscription model of sorts, can you talk at all about that for Diablo III?RP: Well, ultimately, we'll decide on the final business model of the game in the future, but I don't think you're going to see a subscription model in the realm of WOW. It's a boxed product game, it will be more similar to say, the Diablo II or the StarCraft II model.
His comment about talking more about the new B.net features 'toward the end of the year' and that they will carry over from SC2 to D3 is making me lean even further away from any minuscule expectations we might see D3 by the holidays.
"there is no cow level!" is a cheat in starcraft, iirc.
good find find though, i enjoyed the read. it gave me a slight bit more hope towards the art direction of D3. only thing that troubled me is that Rob can't make the obvious decision of D3 as the game of choice, if he had to choose. Shame on you.
