Jun 10, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "SilVerSurFnStud" »This means i get to go duel all my HC chars again -Sigh- Im actually kinda sad about this reset. 1 year is somewhat shorter then previous resets. But if its 1 step closer to d3 then count me in.
count any diablo fan in... lol
Jun 10, 2008i think it was aquired. And i sent medieval dragon a pm asking for what he thought the "percentage" of diablo 3 being announced this year.Posted in: News & Announcements
There is not much evidence to make a percent. I can say it is high.
1. Blizzard Worldwide Invitationals end on June 29. Diablo II and LOD were both released on June 29. It is the Diablo II & LOD anniversaries.
2. WWI takes place in Paris -- not far from the Cathedral of Notredame.
3. Frank Pearce said Team 3 was working on something awesome.
4. Back on 2003, when the executives left Blizzard North, it was revealed Blizzard North was working on 2 unannounced games. One got canned -- if you check the US Trademark website a trademark named Diablo II: Salvation was abandoned on 2003. Which leaves a second game unaccounted for and unannounced.
5. A Blizz spokesman said there would be three game announcements ... Only Starcraft 2 and Wrath of the Lich King have been announced -- leaving a third game still unannounced.
I don't know about percents but that smells like there is a unannounced game missing. The question is "When" will it be announced. It can be WWI or BlizzCon (October).
thanks to medieval for the pm back!
Jun 9, 2008DIABLO® III REVEALED AT BLIZZARD HEADQUARTERSPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
IRVINE, Calif. - April 1, 2008 -- Overwhelmed by an army of angry and impatient fans, Blizzard Entertainment® today reluctantly unveiled Diablo® III, the third groundbreaking title in its highly acclaimed role-playing game series and sequel to the award-winning Diablo® II: Lord of DestructionTM, at the company's very first surprise press conference at its newly opened headquarters.
The announcement took place in the Blizzard Entertainment campus courtyard, in front of select members of the press who received a startling impromptu presentation that included a ten-second, freshly pre-rendered Diablo III cinematic trailer and a physically re-enacted gameplay demonstration by the development team taken hostage by the gamers.
Under threat of a forum member's taser "of teh win," public relations staff explained that designed to be a revolutionary single-player and online role-playing experience, Diablo III will set players on a multitude of dynamically generated quests on the path to defeat the demonic forces of Diablo and his demon brothers Baal and Mephisto. Eight brand new and re-imagined character classes [zzap! aieee!] will be highly customizable in appearance and abilities, with 20 hero-specific skills per character and 10 shared abilities used to battle over 300 varieties of monsters in and an immersive 3D-graphics world.
Set in the massive worlds of Sanctuary, Hell, and the High Heavens, Diablo III will include a compelling single-player story mode, as well as fast-paced online play through an upgraded version of Blizzard's renowned online gaming service, Battle.net®.
Diablo III will reinvent the persistent online world concept while preserving its hero-centric story, permitting up to ten players to join in on a game session for cooperative game play and dueling matches. Characters engage the forces of evil in a limitless world spanning, for the first time, the entire continents of Sanctuary, the High Heavens, and Hell including never before seen lands to explore. Using the latest graphics technology including DirectX® 10.1, its next-generation 3D engine helps create a thrilling, immersive role-playing experience.
"With Diablo III, we'll do everything we wanted to do with the first two games and much, much more," pleaded Bill Roper, Senior Producer of Diablo II, whose team at Flagship Studios have abruptly moved Diablo III to their top priority. "We recognize that expectations are high but we plan to meet those expectations and deliver an engaging, action-packed, competitive experience that Diablo players and role-playing gamers worldwide will enjoy. Now will you let us go?"
Blizzard is developing Diablo III for simultaneous release on the Windows® and Macintosh® PC platforms. Further information about the game, including details on the single-player, multiplayer, and subscription features, as well as system requirements, pricing, and availability, will be announced in the months ahead. No, no, I mean days! Days, yes! To learn more about Diablo III, please visit the official website at www.blizzard.com/diablo3 and contact the authorities.

Jun 16, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "alexiskool12345" »I def. think there's something more then just Starcraft 2 pro comments and wotlk info. That just isn't enough content to warrant an entire event at this point. That and the fact that of all the countries/cities in this world, they chose Paris, France.
Ya.. So maybe blizzard wanted the slip ups, make them look accidental, to get the suspense up?
