Diablo III May 15th

Blizzard announces a May 15th release date for Diablo III, saying this is when the action/RPG sequel will be available at retail in many territories, and digitally in others. They have kicked off presales of the game on this page, offering the game in either form, as well as in a USD $99.99 alabaster-white retail Collector's Edition. They also offer a reminder that a free copy of the game is to be had for those who sign up for a World of Warcraft annual pass. Here's word:

In Diablo III, players take on the role of one of five heroic characters -- barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk, or demon hunter -- and engage in pulse-pounding combat with endless legions of evil. As they undertake an epic quest to rid Sanctuary from the corrupting forces of the Burning Hells, players will explore diverse and perilous settings, grow in experience and ability, acquire artifacts of incredible power, and meet key characters who’ll join them in battle or aid them in other ways.

Diablo III was built from the ground up to leverage the full functionality of the Battle.net platform, which delivers powerful matchmaking and communication tools, allowing adventurers to seamlessly join forces for exciting cooperative play. Battle.net also provides a secure infrastructure for the Diablo III auction house, a feature-rich marketplace that Sanctuary’s heroes can use to trade their hard-earned treasures. Players will be able to buy and sell weapons, armor, and other valuable items in the auction house in exchange for in-game gold. Players will also have the option to receive real-world currency for auction house sales, which they can apply to their Battle.net Balance for the purchase of a variety of digital products through Battle.net, including Diablo III auction house items, or cash out through a third-party payment service such as PayPal™ in most regions. Further details related to the auction house will be announced in the coming weeks.

Going to wait. I still play D2 once in a while, and not in a hurry to drop money on this one. Still so much to play and seems like there are still a lot of questions as to how the game will be, etc. I am still not sold on the "look" of the game.

But hey, what do I know? I am the only person in the world who hasn't played the BETA.....FFS.

Since everyone is reading this thread:

A new Wing Commander game has just been announced!

It better have Mark Hamill, Malcolm Fucking McDowell and a pornstar!!!

This move is about preventing piracy and protecting Blizzards little auction house, it will do nothing to stop cheating.

That Blizzard or anyone else even attempts to deny this is almost pretty insulting given the obviousness of it. Blizzard indeed has the right to do with their game as they wish, and everyone has the right to applaud them for it if they wish. For God's sake though, let's at least be honest about why they are doing what they are doing. Cheating has practically nothing to do with it.
I dont even know why we arguing about this. Clearly the reason cannot be discussed because it's a reason of greed. Blizzard obviously won't say that. Blizzard will say something else, like "security", and whatever...

The real reason is because they want to control/track you.

You are just an overflowing font of negativity, aren't you?

It's FREE?? Uh-oh.

And allegedly EA approved - shocking!

EA sanctioned, that is, the guys were free to make a WC game without EA sending in the lawyers to kill their project. That is how far EA's influence goes.

Are you fucking with me?!?!



A fan project launches in a week or something. Other than that I haven't seen anything on a new Wing Commander game.

FYI - posting "news" without a link is just a waste of everyone's time.

Damn this thread really blew up overnight.

Judging by your past few posts, this is just a drive-by trolling, correct?

After a glance through his posts he appears to have a long running history of hit and run trolls with no substance so I wouldn't sweat it.

I'm trying to remember the last thread that ran up a post count like this.

They're not deceiving anyone. They're letting you know months in advance so you don't waste your money. You can either buy it and deal with it, or move the fuck on and stop bitching about it.
Actually, I can NOT buy it, AND bitch about it! Free speech is cool. I can tell others that Blizzard and the fanboys are full of shit when they say stuff about it being online only to prevent cheating. I can point out that you're at the mercy of their servers and your ISP if you want to play the game you paid for. I can at least help to inform some people about the problems. If they want to buy anyway, fine. That's their decision. My decision is to point out the crap that ActiBliz is peddling.

This is all very true. The trick to making it work is to ensure that the people receiving your message are stupid enough to agree.

You really have no clue how Diablo 2 worked, do you?

It's pretty clear to me that Kowen does not understand the concept of Diablo's OFFLINE SP Mode at all.

I like his use of /facepalms and swears though, makes it all that much funnier when he just keeps digging that ignorance hole.

Ehhh... it's equally funny to see people complaining about a persistent connection requirement given where we are with technology today.

I get it. Some people are poor. Fine. You probably shouldn't be spending your money on video games anyway.

D3 is not a persistent connection game, it literally only plays on a blizzard server, you never host a game on your machine, you connect to a hosted game session on some b.net server, even if playing alone - that means you always have lag and delay if blizzard has crappy servers and you can not play if blizzard or you have an outage.

This has nothing to do with money.

You're right. I hadn't thought of Blizzard having crappy servers! They probably don't have the funds or past experience to do this right.

As expected you actually have nothing to contribute to the debate other than a personal attack.

I present facts, you present childish retorts.


You presented obvious PR Bullshit to anyone who's followed the industry at all, but hey if it helps you sleep better, whatever works for you I suppose. Rolleyes
