    Scanning the Loot Goblin amiibo will transform this Rainbow Portal into a shimmering golden portal that will take you to The Vault—the mysterious and treasure-filled realm of the Treasure Goblins and their enigmatic Baroness, Greed.

     

     

    Scanning any other amiibo can only be done outside of town and will spawn a Champion pack of enemies—a challenging group of monsters with special powers and improved treasure.

     

     

    All amiibo can be scanned once per day each, so be sure to take advantage of those extra challenges, loot, and first-class ticket to The Vault as often as you can!

  • published the article [UPDATED] Diablo 4 Announcement Pulled from Blizzcon, Kotaku Writes

     

    According to sources close to Kotaku, Blizzcon didn't go exactly as planned for the Diablo team. Allegedly, they were going to announce that they were working on Diablo 4, but with no concrete vision in place, they pulled the announcement - hence the news post from the official Blizzard/Diablo site:

    "One of those people told me that the Diablo team wasn’t yet ready to commit to an announcement, as Diablo 4 has changed drastically over the past four years and may continue to change further. (We’ve heard it’s gone through at least two different iterations under different directors.)" -- Jason Schreier, Kotaku

    Blizzard has yet to comment on the story, so we cannot confirm whether the sources are correct. Although, if you do read the news post again, they do mention that they aren't ready to announce all of their plans at Blizzcon. Was this it? Hopefully we'll find out soon.


    UPDATE

     

    Kotaku has updated their original article with a correction: Blizzard did NOT plan on announcing Diablo 4 at Blizzcon this past weekend. Here's the statement that they received directly from Blizzard:

    “First off we want to mention that we definitely hear our community. We generally don’t comment on rumors or speculation, but we can say that we didn’t pull any announcements from BlizzCon this year or have plans for other announcements. We do continue to have different teams working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects, and we look forward to announcing when the time is right.”

     Their sources still confirm that they are working on Diablo 4, but that it still has a long road ahead.

  • published the article Possible Amiibo Support Details Datamined

    Diablo 3 Switch

     

    We've known since PAX West that Diablo 3 on the Switch would be receiving Amiibo support, but that was all the information we were given. Today, however, rumors on Reddit gleaned from an allegedly datamined leaked version of the game claim that it will initially support three types of Amiibos:

     

    • Default/Generic Amiibo
    • Treasure Goblin Amiibo
    • Demon Amiibo

    The datamined leak also claims that the first two Amiibos will spawn a portal to a different location, with the last one summoning a powerful demon on the map. All three will also have their own cooldown timers: 22 hours for portals and 45 minutes for demons. It's also rumored that the Amiibos can be used in both online and offline modes.

     

    Without any official information to determine if these rumors are true, we ask that you take this information with a grain of salt. However, since Blizzcon is just around the corner, it's highly likely that we will receive detailed information regarding Amiibo support then, so keep an eye out!
