The time has come our dear Diablo fans. Yes, after almost 12 years, Diablo III is finally here with us. Blizzard’s action hack n slash RPG has been released in Europe. Some of you will be excited, some of you might get disappointed with its visual art style, some may be infuriated by the early/launch issues, some may feel that it was not worth the wait, while others will get a boner while playing it. Fact is that a new, legendary game has hit stores and it will be interesting to see its sales and people’s reaction to it.
Earlier today, we posted all of the game’s cinematics, so make sure to check them if you are interested in them. In other news, Blizzard is aware of the launch issues. According to the company, the login servers are at full capacity, due to high concurrency, and that’s why there are some delays to the login process. Naturally, this will be resolved in the next hours or so. In addition, Blizzard has released a guide for those having issues with their game.
Diablo III will continue the epic Diablo storyline, with players playing their role in the ongoing struggle to save the world of Sanctuary from the corrupting forces of the Burning Hells.
As the sequel to Diablo II, the game will feature the easy-to-use interface, fast-paced action, and visceral gameplay that Diablo players have come to expect and enjoy.
Designed from the ground up to leverage the power of Battle.net, Diablo III will also provide gamers with industry-leading matchmaking and communication tools; convenient character- and inventory-management options; and the Diablo III auction house, which will support a robust player-driven economy.
