Diablo 3 officially announced

That sneaky Blizzard

 

Diablo fans will be more than happy to know that the rumors we wrote about here were true. Blizzard’s official homepage today shows an announcement of Diablo 3 game, and you really have to stand in awe before them, because they really know how to keep a secret until the time is right.

The funny thing about the whole teaser thing is that towards the end, meaning yesterday, the whole splash screen seemed to show a completely different thing. What seemed to be ice a couple of days ago ended up looking more like minerals, the resource from Starcraft, and what was speculated to be the face from Diablo looked more like a Protoss face.

The game will use a new custom physics engine that allows for realistic object dynamics and cloth simulation and will be playable over Battle.net. There will be five character classes but, for now, Blizzard revealed only two - the barbarian and witch doctor.

The game will be out for both Mac and PC, but launchdate is as of yet undisclosed since there's still a lot of work to do. Still, since Blizzard is famous for their meticulous polishing of their games, we can't blame them.

So there you have it: the gaming world will be richer by another Blizzard masterpiece and although some might not agree with me on the word “masterpiece,” it is my humble opinion that Blizzard never missed, and I doubt that will be the case this time.

Here's one screenshot, but you can visit Blizzard’s official site here, and view game play videos, more artwork, screenshots, the new classes, etc.
