Today at Blizzcon, Blizzard announced that they’re remaking the original Diablo inside the franchise’s current installment. The release will be part of an upcoming “20th anniversary” patch.
As suspected, Diablo III is getting an expansion. Reaper of Souls. Blizzard has dropped a cinematic trailer for the forthcoming snap-on to the title, and it’s gorgeous. Par for the course. Now here is hoping the expansion’s content is equally as wonderful.
Hit the jump for the trailer and more details.
It is good to see someone important blasting Diablo III for the turd-dongle that it turned out to be. The would-be bomb thrower is none other than one of the creators of the original Diablo, so the dude has some merit. Would you believe that it cheesed off the people behind Diablo III? I would!
Some dumb ass has died after playing Diablo III for forty hours. I can’t be the only one who is impressed it took this long for someone to kick the bucket via the Devil, can I? I mean shit, it’s been out for like two months.
Diablo III ain’t World of Warcraft. Da-doi! We all know that. Ain’t even the same genre of game. However, what made WoW so fucking addictive was that in addition to the gear whore mad dashing, there was a continual flow of new content. D3 ain’t got that, and even the developers know that’s a problem.
It’s as if a million nerds cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.

Yup. Diablo III’s out. I’ll see you all in my Error 37 t-shirt at Comic Con this summer.
Diablo III comes out tomorrow, and the thunder you hear are the legions of fanboys and fangirls diddling their geek-spots. Want to jump in on the pleasure circle? Check out this prequel cartoon for the game directed by Aeon Flux’s Peter Chung and animation studio Titmouse.
So goddamn soon.
A new Diablo III TV spot yesterday during the playoff basketball time thing, and my goodness. Just odd CG wankery. I need this game. I need it so desperately. Fifteen days.
