    from ign

    12:25 -- Each piece of gear is custom designed for each class. Barbarian puts on demonic sort of garb with giant devil horns. Barbarian can hop across gaps on the map. Barbarian dislodged a rock wall and dropped it on zombies, killing them. Demoing moving whirlwind attack.

    12:24 -- Red orbs that drop from enemies can replenish health without you having to use items. Talking about demon foes he's fighting, they have a summon ability. Barbarian's jumping attack covers quite a distance. Goes flying up staincase. Also appear to have a shockwave type of attack. Still procure items from bookcases. Blizzard touting interactive environment as an inportant feature. Barbarian triggers a trap chest that spawns four spectral enemies around him.

    12:21 -- The axe guy is the barbarian class. Says improvements have been made, like the hotbar for skills. Using the mouse wheel and tab key you can quickly switch between skills. Whoing inventory. Appears to still have slot limits. Using enchanted axes with frost and lighting ,which stuns and freezes opponents.

    12:20 -- It's apparently still an action RPG. Same interface -- red health and blue orbs. Skill bar at bottom. 3/4 overhead perspective. Character with 2 axes hacking at demons in what appears to be a foggy cathedral. Has a jumping attack where he smashes the two axes into the ground.

    EDIT Witchdoctor confirmed


    Wall of Zombies BEST.WALL.EVAR.

    Offical site up with Tyrial




    Two decades have passed since the demonic denizens, Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, wandered the world of Sanctuary in a vicious rampage to shackle humanity into unholy slavery. Yet for those who battled the Prime Evils directly, the memory fades slowly and the wounds of the soul still burn.



    When Deckard Cain returns to the ruins of Tristram's Cathedral seeking clues to new stirrings of evil, a comet from the heavens strikes the very ground where Diablo once entered the world. The comet carries a dark omen in its fiery being and it calls the heroes of Sanctuary to defend the mortal world against the rising powers of the Burning Hells ? and even the failing luminaries of the High Heavens itself.

    Edit the Cinematic Trailer is OMG:cool: Blizzard has just pwned me completely

    That would end the world as we know it. :p

    And in other news, worldwide productivity has dropped a staggering 72% for the past three weeks. South Korea's productivity alone dropped an astonishing 100% in one day. Possible causes being reported are nergasms, nerdgasms, and stim packs.

    Santuary Before Diablo 2

    Santuary Before Diablo 3

    [image=http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc70/Geektechboy/map2.jpg]

    Mount Arreat has turned into Arreat Crater,
    and has caused the barbarian lands to brake up and they are now called the Dreadlands.

    Also the Island at the top of the map now has an asian-ish name possible samurai class (pure geek speculation there).

    The Barbarian bio on the offical site has a bit more, basically saying that since the end of D2
    no barbs have been seen, but large evil looking shapes are seen in the distance in the dreadlands.

    Blizzard has already stated that Diablo 3 will be played on a new improved Battlenet, one which will not have the hacking problems that D2 did.

    P.S. Bring back the Paladin, thank you.

    Two bosses that have a 99.9% chance of being in Diablo III

    Admozan, Lord of Betrayal (IIRC, it's ages since I played DI and that's where he's mentioned
    Belial, Lord of Lies

    Glad to see Tristram's back. Maybe this time we can go to the Amazon islands, or deep into Kehjistan where the necros hang out

    What I also love is how all the classes can be played either male or female.

    The desert city we saw in the trailer (Caldeum) is in Kehjistan. So I think we'll be visiting it.

    Let me tell you, my index finger was so strong back in my Diablo II days.

    I remember really souring on Diablo II because of the "save" mechanic -- basically, everything constantly respawned, so even if you cleared out a large area, made your way to a save point and saved the game, that area you cleared out would be filled with monsters again when you started up the next time. I realize that mechanic was basically to support online play, but it was downright annoying in single-player.

    You also needed spider-hands to be able to effectively use more than one skill while gulping down potions. I actually think this sort of game is better suited to consoles.

    Though, did that barbarian just get his head chewed off? Man, that looked awesome. You can feel the bone shattering.

    The expansion is already out and has been for quite some time. I think you mean the sequel.
