Surfing through Entrecard I have browsed an article from Attack of the Technology Fame saying that Blizzard had finally announced Diablo III and that is indeed good news for a die hard Diablo player like me. Diablo III promises five playable characters with male and female look and so far I have seen two at the official Blizzard Website, the Barbarian and Witch Doctor.

Diablo III Cinematic Trailer

I had enjoyed so much of Diablo II that me and my friends even duel and fight together to finish the levels and it has long been awaited and dream that there will be DIablo 3 and indeed Diablo III had come.

Below is the Gameplay Trailer unveiled at the event in Paris last June 28 as well as a description of Diablo 3 from YouTube Channel, Zaanannim

Diablo III will pick up the story twenty years after the events of Diablo II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the inhabitants of 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. Playing as a hero from one of five distinct character classes, players will acquire powerful items, spells, and abilities as they explore new and familiar areas of Sanctuary and battle hordes of demons to safeguard the world from the horrors that have arisen. The first two characters classes -- the barbarian and the witch doctor -- were shown as part of the announcement at the event today in Paris.

Diablo III will feature a custom 3D-graphics engine to render lush indoor and outdoor areas of Sanctuary with a high level of detail and vivid special effects. The game's physics-enhanced environments will be interactive and destructible, offering traps and obstacles that create added danger for players and monsters alike. These elements, along with a new quest system and random scripted events, will be integrated into the game's random-level generator, giving Diablo III the ultimate combination of dynamic gameplay and replayability. Cooperative and competitive play will be available online through an upgraded version of Blizzard Entertainment's renowned online gaming service,

    I still remember playing Diablo 1 about 10 years ago. It was one of my most favorite game. Diablo II is complicated for me. I don't know how Diable III going to be. Maybe, I will try it.

    Diablo II was also great with lots of things to do and with lots of items to search for... I remember completing the set items.
