Diablo III

OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://www.blizzard.com/diablo3/?rhtml=y


Two decades have passed since the demonic lords, Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, set out across the world of Sanctuary on a vicious rampage, twisting humanity to their unholy will. Yet for those who battled the Prime Evils, the memory fades slowly.
When Deckard Cain returns to the ruins of Tristram Cathedral seeking clues to defeat new stirrings of evil, a fiery harbinger of doom falls from the heavens, striking the very ground where Diablo once entered the world. This fire from the sky reawakens ancient evils and calls the heroes of Sanctuary to defend the mortal world against the rising powers of the Burning Hells once again.

AT the Blizzard WWI (World wide Invitational) Blizzard revealed that they are developing Diablo III. They showed a cinematic teaser and a 20 minute gameplay video among other things.

Its going to be a stellar few years for blizzard with them capping 10mill subscribers on WoW, WotLK coming out, SC2 and now Diablo

Dam they gonna be rolling in even more money than their 17 million a month from WoW.

In the ancient times, there was the Goddess Etain and the three races she created: the Dragons, the Nordein, and the Dumianas.

The Goddess Etain found faults in the Nordien and cast them into the soil. In their arrogance, the Dumianas questioned the Etain's power and authority. The Goddess was weakened by their disbelief , and the Dumianas killed her. Her soul was torn in two.

The death of the Goddess left Teos out of balance and unprotected.
Other Gods sought to take over Teos and created monsters to invade and destroy.

When the dust settled, there were two new Goddesses overseeing Teos.

These two races, the Elves and the Vail, find themselves in constant conflict with each other. Age old tensions fuel their aggression. Soon after, the Humans joined forces with the Elves while the Nordein re-emerged as the "Deatheaters" and allied with the Vail creating two factions: The Alliance of Light and the Union of Fury. Not only battling the monsters that still roam the lands, these two sides wage a never ending war over the control of Teos.

Over 50% of Korea play it you can't say that its not a good game.

Probably the best rts ever made k maybe wc3 beats it not sure but really interesting story. With 3 completely different races which used different tactics. Zerg Swarming massing ling rush anyone?

Protoss damage dealers less units yet more powerful I loved the carriers with their swarm drones.

Terran the balanced race as the humans are usually depicted in games average damage and you can mass them more than protoss yet not that good when massed at zerg standards still Tanks were awesome perfect defense put them in a dropship send them to a cliff where u have to fly to get to and u have sum ownage defense.
