For Those Of You Who Missed..

“Twenty years have passed since the cataclysmic events of Diablo® II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram….”

Once again Blizzard Entertainment “tremble” millions of their fans when they unveiled their new game, Diablo III during Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational. They’ve launched the game’s official website (http://www.blizzard.com/diablo3/), with information about the places, characters, monsters, and adventures awaiting you upon your return to the world of Sanctuary.

 

Game Features:

– Explore a fully-realized Sanctuary – the living, breathing gothic fantasy world of Diablo III rendered in gorgeous 3D.

–  Battle the unholy forces of the Burning Hells with all-new character classes like the otherworldly Witch Doctor, or with re-imagined warriors from Diablo’s past: such as the fierce Barbarian.

– Rain Hell on your enemies wielding the interactive environment as a weapon: lay cunning traps, turn destructible objects against your foes, and use environmental obstacles to your advantage – all powered by the Havoc physics system.

– Experience the intensity of multiplayer Diablo III over an all-new, wickedly-enhanced Battle.net platform with numerous enhancements to make connecting with your friends easier – and cooperative gameplay more fun. (nope, not a “World of Diablo”)

          

Seems that Diablo 3 are more violent than before, with blood splashing everywhere Currently there are two character classes that already revealed in the official website; 

the barbarians; those near-legendary, immense, relentless, dual-wielding furies of combat dwelling upon their sacred Mount Arreat. Updated skills: Cleave, Ground Stomp, Leap, Seismic Slam, Whirlwind

Barbarian

the witch doctor; He dispatched his opponent with terrifying precision, assaulting his victim’s mind and body with elixirs and powders that evoked fires, explosions, and poisonous spirits. As if these assaults were not enough, the witch doctor also had at his command the ability to summon undead creatures from the netherworld to rend the flesh from his enemy’s body (sounds lika a necromancer for me). Updated skills: Firebomb, Horrify, Locust Swarm, Mass Confusion and Soul Harvest

Updated places:

  

New Tristram:

Diablo won’t be a “Diablo” if there is no Tristram. This place is already exist since the first Diablo came out when the journey into the Hell began here, until the destruction of Tristram at the beginning of Diablo II. This is the place where Deckard Cain is originally from.

Caldeum:

Caldeum was once the proudest city in all of Kehjistan, the trade capital of the entire world. Caldeum was never seen as the heart of the empire, even though it rivaled Viz-jun, and later Kurast, in size, and those who called Caldeum their home liked it that way. Even when the Mage Clan Wars erupted, the battles were never tolerated to affect trade in Caldeum, for while politics and magic may be important, trifling with trade is a serious matter. Let Kurast see itself as the center of the world, they would say. We’ll keep our free exchange of goods, currency, and ideas, thank you very much.
