Diablo III Unveiled!

I woke up a little early this morning, stumbled to the kitchen to brew up some coffee.

In my blurry mind I was cooking up a post about the new, and in my mind, totally kick @ss Blizzard Authenticator. The fantastic new security measure Blizz has created to help eliminate character hacking.

Started up the WoW launcher and this was waiting for me:

Diablo® III Unveiled!
Twenty years have passed since the cataclysmic events of Diablo® II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded 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....

Following the unveiling of Diablo III today at the Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational, we've launched the game's official website, with information about the places, characters, monsters, and adventures awaiting you upon your return to the world of Sanctuary. Some of the site's highlights include:

The cinematic teaser trailer shown at the 2008 Worldwide Invitational
A 20-minute gameplay demo video
More than 60 screenshots and pieces of concept art
Deckard Cain's journal, narrated by Deckard Cain himself -- stay a while and listen!
And much, much more
Visit the new Diablo III website now to learn more about the game, and make sure to check out the official FAQ and the announcement press release.
They must still be uploading the page, every time I try to access the cenematic teaser trailer or the gameplay video it hangs. Darn it!!!!!

The page on is cool though, and the music is very Cirque du Soliel. Nice!

Musssstttt seeeeee Diablo III traaaaaaiiiiillllleerrrr.


The only page really responsive is the character class page which show the Barbarian, and the Witch Doctor classes. Very cool looking graphics indeed!!

Of course, no release date. So now we have three blizzard games hanging over us.

The only thing left would be a Warcraft IV. How 'bout it Blizz?

Edit: I managed to click through to the FAQ page. Click Here to jump to it.
