Diablo 3 Release Date finally here!

Blizzard has finally announced that Diablo III will launch on May 15, 2012. You can pre-order the game now through www.battle.net.  Much like Blizzard’s popular, award winning MMO, World of Warcraft, Diablo is a dark fantasy/horror-themed action role-playing game. Whilst Diablo III will possess multiplayer modes, there isn’t the same Massively Multiplayer that you can find in WoW.  


Some changes have been made in order to make the game faster and more flexible as well as make players choose and employ tactics rather than mindless mouseclicking. Besides taking well-learned lessons from WoW, the developers have been inspired by games such as Zelda and God of War.  Blizzard also recently announced that a few features had to be trimmed down to make this launch date possible, including the PvP mode and Mystic artisan. Their current plan is to go back and patch in the Pvp at a later date.

Blizzard will be expecting two other new products this year. They are also working on Heart of the Swarm, the next version of Starcraft II, and Mists of Pandaria, a brand new World of Warcraft expansion pack, though the developer has not yet specified which will launch in 2012.
