Diablo 3 Previews

It appears the guys over at 1up and Kotaku got their chance to get a hold of the Diablo 3 demo!

Thankfully Garnet Lee was given the chance to play for 1up and he choose the wizard. While Kotaku selected the Barbarian. Here’s a quick summing of of the Barbarian experience.

“We were also equipped with two Barbarian skills, Ground Stomp and Battle Cry. The former was hot-keyed to the “2” and, when enabled, stunned everything around the Barbarian. Helpful, when Fallen are surrounding you and Fallen Shamen are tossing fireballs your way. The Battle Cry, on the “1” key, increased our armor class temporarily. If we were playing a multiplayer game, that Battle Cry effect would have been passed on to our party members. But we were doing this quest solo.

The Barbarian’s other skill, Cleaver, was mapped to the right mouse button. Click on it, and our lady brute did a two handed attack on two enemies at once, as long as they were side-by-side. Again, handy when surrounded by Fallen and Sand Wasps. Those Sand Wasps really suck, by the way, ejecting a quartet of mini-Wasps at our hero. Nasty.”

while 1up had this to say about the Wizard Class

“The demo area turned me loose into the desert region Alcarnus. Starting from an outpost, the primary quest was to travel over to Lut Bahadur. After a brief walk through wind-worn ravines, the scene opened up into a sprawling desert with no shortage of enemies who weren’t too please to see me there. Almost immediately, the “Diablo-ness” of this sequel came out. Over-excited by the moment, I charged into the first group of enemies and wound up dead quite quickly. Remembering how to play, I was able to settle into a rewarding tactic of luring a few foes out, freezing them in place with frost nova, moving back and blasting them with arcane orb, and finally mopping up the remainders with the more powerful spectral blade”

I’m 100% sure I’ll try out ALL of the classes. Oh and thank god they’re making Male and Female versions. Diablo 2 sucks in that regard.

Diablo 3 Concept Art and Movie

Kotaku got a hold of some concept art and movies..Well. The movies. You can find the concept art on Diablo 3’s website. Blizzard did update the Bestiary for Diablo’s with a new mob, The Fallen Ones.

From Diablo3.com

“The fallen ones are a unique breed of true demonic origin, one of the few that I’ve been able to conclusively verify through sources other than the ancient Vizjerei tomes in my possession. (How I came by said tomes will, of necessity, remain my secret.)

As my readers are well aware, early Vizjerei writings are often little more than self-serving propaganda aimed at whitewashing heinous deeds committed by the mage clan. For instance, we now know that the goatmen were unwitting human victims of an ancient Vizjerei power struggle (see entry 009 for more detailed information on the khazra’s tragic history), whereas the ancient Vizjerei texts would have us believe that they were actually demons – lieutenants of Baal, no less!

Through diligent cross-referencing with other manuscripts in my vast library, however, I have ascertained that the Vizjerei depiction of the creatures known as the fallen ones is factually correct.”
