Diablo III & Reaper of Souls

Postby Dan » Fri Jun 27, 2008 3:58 am

For the last few days http://www.Blizzard.com has featured a splash screen that's evolving daily. This is coinciding with their annual Worldwide Invitational event and is expected to reveal all during the event this weekend. The last time blizzard did something like this was for the official announcement of Starcraft 2, the hype is this is finally official word of Diablo 3.

The little runes carved about the place contain references to the Starcraft, Warcraft and Diablo universes so no real clues there.

Well the rumour round the intrawebz is that it's Diablo 3.

Apparently it was confirmed that they'd be announcing Diablo 3 at an event in the next week or so. Don't have the link (nor the time to find it), but I believe I got the info from Digg if you want to look yourselves.

If it is Diablo III then the best way i can describe my feeling toward this is;

ooooooaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiwwww-YAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

And if it turns out to be an MMO, I will go super crazy. Diablo is one of my top favourite games ever. Forever.

The space background doesn't seem very Diablo III, but it could just be to throw people of the sent. I really do hope it is Diablo III.

The Splash is just a complete piss take. It has Runes from Diablo on it, symbols from Warcraft, symbols from Starcraft. Maybe they'll announce something for all 3 :o

Diablo 3 would be amazing. I actually followed the lore in that unlike WoW.

Take a look at this link. Those two dots do look very much like the eyes of a Death Knight.

Also what is up with the strange bird? Maybe the splash screen has nothing to do with the new game reveal and instead is for Wraith of the Lich King after all.

Not forgetting that the recently acquired the rights to diablo3.com from the fan page who wouldn't stop claiming that it was due to them having it in development and not just so they could secure the domain to protect their future.

My money is on WotLK open beta announcment. It's all icey and stuff.

Or more likely a box set containing Warcraft 1-3, Diablo 1 & 2, Starcraft, WoW and all the expansions (hence all the runes /nod)

The more I think about it the more I think the two are separate. They said that there will be a game announcement tomorrow at the International event. The splash screen could well be relating to some kind of open beta for Wraith.
