Teaser From One of D3's Biggest Chinese Fan Sites
A banner on one of China's biggest D3 fan sites, burning up to reveal what is supposed to be an expansion teaser, was pointed to us by DamienJohn. The burnt area is getting wider every day and right now, on Day 6, we can already spot cathedral windows sneaking up on the background.
Of course, this could simply be nothing major at all or even a creative way for the site to introduce its own redesign, but only time (and people working on said site) can tell the truth.
Check out the progress in the images bellow and if you have more information about the site's teasing project, let us know in the comments!
PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers will soon be able to join the fight for the fate of Sanctuary and face off against the Lord of Terror.

Check out an early screening on YouTube below, and get ready for the hellgates to open on console, September 3.

LOL. Are you being serious? This image could be anything. It could just be smoke coming out from recently put out candles.
Behind the last paper bit there is probably a trollface.
It is, however, interesting that what does seem to be something halo-shaped, wasn't blurred, but now is. I'm not saying it has to be Imperius, but it's something.
The structure looks heavenly, whatever's in the lower right corner looks more hell-ish. But Diablo already attacked the high heavens, so maybe this time, the angels attack hell...? Or maybe it will show a corrupted Imperius
I may be sitting with a tin foil hat on here , but why would anyone imply that something that is not directly from Blizzard?? is a "Expansion Teaser"
Why would it show on a fansite and not the official Blizz site?
Source that actually shows it's from Blizzard itself , and not just user made? .... I mean after all ... it's "Just" a fansite , even though it might be the biggest fan site they have.
Well this is only my take on it, but I'm taking from the news post here on Diablofans (I don't know how to read chinese) that the site has claimed that it is a teaser. So that then begs the question, if they are indeed the biggest D3 site in China, why would they risk their credibility for something that isn't real. Or simply, why would they lie?
With how Blizz treats the Asian WoW crowd, it's not far fetched that they would give the teaser to a news site over there.
Moreover, doing so starts this big ol' internet-wide hunt for answers, which is ultimately damn good PR. We already got a teaser on the EU/US sites ("Reaper of Souls"). Viral campaigns like these create hype and debates, which again, is good PR.
People need to relax. Good on DamienJohn for finding it. Maybe it's a teaser, maybe it's not? Either way it looks interesting so lets all sit back and watch it slowly reveal itself
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
Bashiok - Blizzard Representative - 08/01/2011 -"So how many skill combinations are there now? Well taking into account 6 active skills, all the rune combinations, and 3 passives we currently expect each class to have roughly 2,285,814,795,264 different build combinations."
"Hey, I thought you'd like the witty irony of grub-on-glowie violence!"
Presuming the teaser is legit (which it seems to be), at least we know the Black Soulstone definitely did survive, someone naughty is trying to get it, and the remaining archangels are there, weapons drawn, to try and stop them. (Although why they let us (the Nephalem) throw it off in the first place is anyone's guess)
Teaser has been updated again. Now we see some actors behind the canvas.
And guys, something went through my mind last night, as i rewatched some of the D3 Cinematics.
Well, u might want to take a closer look at the Ending Cutscene at 1:46. http:// youtu.be/c0Mckgl2ZO8?t=1m46s "Sine justice has been met this day, I will now stand as wisdom."
Suspicious? At least an interesting point, i guess.
Maybe the burden to reign the High Heavens as a mortal is just too heavy.. just saying.
After seeing the Prophecy of the End Days in the Book of Cain and then watching the final cinematic, I kind of figured the Wisdom line really meant Tyrael. Whether it will or not, we shall soon see, but the preview from Book of Tyrael (where being a mortal in Heaven isn't a good thing, and he 'fled' from either the Court of Jusitce or Heaven itself) as well as language in the books description naming him a 'former archangel' may indicate it does mean Wisdom is lost because he couldn't handle it as a mortal.
So it's Imperius and someone else. The soulstone is in heaven. Didn't it fall down from the heavens when Diablo was tossed over the edge? So it's never been in heaven at any point during Diablo 3 (other than inside Diablo). That alone means the story has progressed, and either one of the angels caught it as it fell and brought it back up there, or.... Malthael found it, and is recruiting Imperius...
edit: I was looking at an older version of the pic. So the part about Malthael doesn't seem probably at this point, but the point about the Soulstone being in heaven showing story progress (and thus, the teaser *must* be real) does.
