Just 5 more years till release :P
Got to love their trailers. Good stuff.
guess i just found the class that im going to play
How many years has it been? Is the D3 team made up of like 5 people because it's been way too long.
What the first guy said. I was excited for this years ago, at this point I couldn't care less. Release date or gtfo pls.
Also out of curiousity, what's with the recent influx of 'hunter' classes? Witch Hunter, Demon Hunter, God Hunter....those aren't classes, they're hobbies.
Beats the amazon, love the feel watching it in play... reminds me of a more aoe ranged version of my witchhunter in war.
Yawn, why the hell I come to MMORPG.COM to be told about single player bullsh!t is completely beyond me.
Is it me or where the cinematics of Diablo2 of a much better quality??
That's probably the silliest thing I've seen for a Diablo game.
Double-crossbows that work like semi-automatic pistols? The lines were pretty cheesy too. It was very hard to take seriously (especially with the whole "we stole Illidan's eyes" bit also tossed in there).
crossbows that fire like pistols is neither new nor silly. the trailer, however, is.
Bit too cartoonish for my taste but lets face it, no doubt be the biggest game of 2011.
Guess everyone forgot that Blizzard puts a ton of time into every game and every single one comes out as a virtual masterpiece.. Calm down and be patient, they will deliver another blockbuster.
Disappointed! I was expecting daggers or sword and shield but uzi like crossbows? WTF?
Well that was very non-interesting.... I like the idea but they could have done a better job on the lines. Sounds like something from the 1970's version of Super Man..
Great stuff. Now I know what character I'll be playing! Dual wielding anything is always a good thing! :D
Is it me or is Blizzard slipping on the cinematics? First Cata and its terrible dialog and yet another focus on a single character (yeah I know WOTLK had SIndragosa and an undead army but the main focus was Arthas) and now this? Weak sauce Blizz....weak sauce! They must have totally blew their cinematic load on StarCraft2 because this stuff dosent even come close. Oh, and hurry up and finish the game.
Not impressed by this trailer at all. You can't raise the bar one day and then lower it the next.
Now, someone release a quality trailer is SOE with DCUO....even if you don't like games or comics....that's an awesome trailer.
This kind of dialogue get old fast nowadays , I like my heroes more modest that do the job .
but that me .
For me, the more of Diablo 3 that I see, the more my interest wains. Diablo, even apart from the other Blizzard titles, always had its own unique feel to it. This trailer leads me to be concerned about the integrity of that unique approach. Coupled with Blizzard's increasingly dogmatic approach to release dates, my support continues to waiver.
w00t 100% pure win
Not bad, not up to their usual standard, but it does give a good idea of the class. It was too dark in many spots to make much out. I'm still looking forward to D3.
I must admit that the trailer quality was a little bellow what blizzard usualy deliver, it looked very "in-game" and not "polished" with cheap crowd animations. Anyone who saw a lot of blizzard trailers will tell you the same.
Also, the demon-hunting machine-gun style archer might be a little pushed. I doubt you need to go that deep to feel original, it's really a little cheezy.
Ughh...very very disappointed that the WoW hyper-stylized cartoonish graphics have spilled over into Diablo 3. I was a little disappointed with where Diablo 2 took the game, graphically, but it was still acceptable and I loved Diablo 1 so much I still went out and bought it....but this...this is just cartoon garbage in both graphics and gameplay.
A machine-gun crossbow....really?
The trailer didn't impress me in anything hopefully they make some tweaks dual xbows is stupid.
i thought diablo was like an fps/rts kind of thing?
It was a trailer for a class in a game coming out next year. Personally, I doubt Blizzard intended it to be marketed as a trailer, but rather a introduction. I'm not a big fan of Diablo games but some of the people responding here expected a full-blown trailer. Relax.
No Diablo series is a Hack and Slash/RPG kinda thing not FPS/RTS kinda thing ;-)
Hello my name is Sylvanas Windrunner. Epic fail. Someone tell Blizzard this is not WoW.
Too much WOW art style to my taste.Looks like all Blizz can do is WoW, nowadays.
dual auto-crossbows? Oh well, it isn't like I was a fan of the amazon.
Nice little trailer there. You people complaining about how it looks like WoW so your not going to play are confused. Blizzard has always used this type of artistic feel with low poly count. And they should keep doing it. It allows more people to enjoy there games and it helps them make money. It's called good business sense. And if you forgot, WoW mechanis are based upon Diablo, hence skill trees. Blizzard will never make games that only a specific type of community will play. Those games get shutdown or simply don't generate profit. This game will look kinda like WoW, but will be more darker with that Diablo feel. Plus it's hack n slash. If you don't like it, debate it. But don't act like a 5 yr old and blast the game because its just another WoW when it's clearly not.
mehh what happened to the good ole diablo style ?
very disapointed by this cartoon bs and double cb no way ....
Spending money on that shit? Not gonna happen.
This retarded art style is not suited for a >>>dark<<< fantasy game.
Seems all Diablo competence gone to hell with Flagship Studios (r.i.p.)...
Hellgate was the real D3.
This is world of diablo kindergarten crap.
Funy seeing some comments, geuss some people like shooting fire out of a sword fits diablo more???
I mean seriously did some people even ever played Diablo 1 or 2?
All the people saying this is going to fail because of this trailer... fail just like Starcraft 2 failed right? I mean you all posted on the forums about how "Bad" it was so that must make it true right?
Get over it, this game is going to win. If you don't play it, you are just depriving yourself of a fantastic game based on some fanatic obsession with hate of Blizzard.
Its pure anime. Th girl with high heels doesnt look good, neither the glowing eyes nor the dialogue.
Diablo 3 is a shit, like Titan's Quest.
Cheesey as hell. Ddin't have the darkness that the original had. It looks like a pretty goofy game. But, "Blizzard" now, isn't "Blizzard" then. All different people. All set in their cash-cow-MMORPG-mode.
God, I miss the Rogue.. :(
I played diablo 2 so much and i loved it, i tired WoW but i didnt liked it, i played the campaign of SC 2 and it was fantastic, i played GW 1 for more than 2 years and it was my best "mmo" experience, im sure i will buy D3 and GW2 and enjoy both for a long time.
I love this, I'm going to love the game, and all the nay sayers really need to stop hitting the pipe so much.
Sweet, Lara Croft in the game! :)
sure someone else already mentioned this but tdoes this mean mmorpg.com is now a pc game site and not just mmo's or is blizzard a major stockholder.
It's clear Blizz has dropped the generation of Pc gamers the carried it forward in to glory and is just looking to entertain the next generation they scooped up with WOW.
Anybody Pc gaming at the time of D1 & 2 were released does not find Anime appealing, or you'll find very few that do. The western anime up take is from those born in the mid to late 90's and up and it's clear this is who Blizz are aiming for now. What a pity D3 couldn't have been a mature Pc titles keeping the same atmosphere the first two had. I'll be giving this one a miss as it's far to childish.
Man doesn't seem like blizzard will be able to release anything anymore without a bunch of haters coming out.
I never played the hunter/rogue class in the first two, looking forward to them hopefully releasing a trailer for every class. The graphics and gameplay look like the other diablos just upgraded to the present time. Not sure what everyone is complaining about, but i'm pretty sure anything blizzard does nowadays will have its fair share of people like this.
Very awesome. Although I'm going to first make a Witch Doctor, as he's the closest to the Necro from D2, my fav class from that game, and then I'll make a monk. I think my 3rd character will definitely be Demon Hunder. ;)
Hey look, it's Van Helsing as a girl and without the cool hat.
There should have just been ONE line in this whole trailer.
When she handed her the crossbow, "We kill or we die, make your choice".
The silence would've done a world more for this trailer than the cheesy one liners. That said, the animation quality of this trailer is below Blizzards standards. In any case, I'm probably just going to be a Monk anyway lol
Seriously what has happened to Blizzard's cinematic trailers? This is 2nd one I've seen in a week that is below their previous standards.
well this shit sucks
WTB Time Machine, PST!
People complaining about the quality of this trailer: This is not a CINEMATIC trailer. This was within the game engine to the same extent that SC2 cutscenes were in the game engine. Chill.
Doing a dramatic flip over the baddie and then shooting it must be some sort of cinematic standard. This wasn't excited at all and screamed "I can do this in my sleep!".
Sad that theres no hope for a real D2 sequel. Its all 'stylized' now.
Looked pretty cool until they showed the"actual" in-game footage...
I dont care what you guys say, that is pure awesome. Cannot wait for this game.
It's SOOOOOOOOOOOO corney..
Seriously, it's like something that would only be seen in a girl oriented saturday morning cartoon/anime..
I have seen her somewhere before.... Oh yes thats Kasumi of Mass Effect 2.
"MEH" cinematic, no hype at all
Was looking forward to this title after playing D1 and D2 but will be passing on D3. Blizz will still make their money.
Hmm the only class thats gender specific,intresting.
I'll be gettin me a copy..the game looks fun.
people set their standards wayy to high...
You people have no clue what that means. This is just gaming graphics, pretty much exactly like used by any other game. Get over yourselves. Play a JRPG if you want to know what those words actually mean.
so this is what they been working for so long? fuuny, from here it seems like a lesser version of torchlight...and so an inde compeny can make a game beeter looking, with less money, in just inder (what was it, 2-3 years?). gtfo d3, longlive torchlight 2.
The Monk video from Blizzard was awesome, the others were fine. This new video is rubbish, the gameplay cuts look like something a shovelware company would make.
Also, dual crossbows + heels = just no, that's a lot like SUN (soul of the ultimate nation, containing female-only character switching between 1 big xbow and duals) which sucks in its own right. 2x crossbows reloading themselves magically? That's exactly like semi-automatic pistols, which is way cooler than two tiny crossbows. Credit where it's due though, the fire-shooting big crossbow is nice.
Up next: Draenei Luchador
Waaah, don't you say bad things about games I like. waaah, anyone that says something bad is stupid. Waaaah.
It pains me to read some of these comments, it's almost as though some people have never heard of a top down game before. This game will be the most fun you have ever had in ages playing a game. What blizzard do and I will always love them for it, they understand game play comes first and everything else second. Think the protoss missions in starcraft two!
If this vid was presented to viewers without any mention of Blizzard or Diablo III, I wonder what their response would be? I wonder if Blizz fans would say it looked good w/o knowing it was a Blizz-related product. My guess is no.
It's really bad. Blizzard have always ripped off other IP's, but they've gotten so lazy and hamfisted about it lately. They just can't seem to get off of Warhammer's nuts. Everything is just copy + paste from Games Workshop IP's at this point. This one is 1/3 witch hunter, 1/3 sacred 2 seraphim, 1/3 Van Helsing (which was 90% witch hunter to begin with).
Been looking foward to this. I'll probably play a monk or witch doctor though.
Never been a fan of top down rpgs... I hated Gauntlet... and I haven't been fond of any of the Diablo games. Mash some buttons ftw... no thanks.
If this game had come out 5 yeears ago I would be excited, but now with all the games out that have surpassed this already, it should have done an upgrade. The trailer didn't do much to impress me graphic wise but then neither has anything so far regarding this game. With GW2 coming out this game looks worse than GW.
That was just so damn bad. Never been eager fan of Diablo and still aren't, but if I was I think that video would have put my Diablo fandom out.
Im pretty sure this video was made ingame, using the games own engine and models. It's just closely zoomed in which makes it look a bit low quality.
Bit disappointed they didn't make a more original class though.
i must admit i have the same feeling as i had with SC2 when it came out......i bought SC2 and absolutely LOVED it.....cany wait for the other campains to come out......so i will buy D3 too.....it will own me big time :)
GO BLIZZ :)
Most of you complaining sound like babies.. Who am i kidding, half of you are babies.
Most of you are spoiled little brats who think graphics is more important than anything else. Most old school gamers know that graphics dont make a game. Mario brothers had the shittiest graphics but gameplay was incredible. gameplay, storyline, thats what makes a game, not pretty little graphics. Thats why theres so much crap because the devs. focus on graphics trying to please all the brats, and we get stuck with craptastic titles that are only good for giving your neighbor an epileptic fit.
for the people bitching about the graphics grow the fuck up, go look at diablo 1 and diablo 2 then look at 3 and tell me there isnt a massive diffrence. The graphics are not like crysis because blizzard makes games to were there is always soooo much going on that graphics cant be top of the line and chances are most people bitching about the graphics are going to be surprised when their system wont be able to run the game on more than medium settings. And as for the class WOOOOOOOOOOTT ITS LIKE PLAYING AS SYLVANIS!
Everyone who doesn't like this footage simply did not play Diablo or d2. D2 was the the most fun i've bad playing a game next to starcraft :)
it's a shame the game's art style isn't as dark as the first two games'. Hopefully they'll get the lighting and sound right, though. Some of those environments do look pretty decently made for the dark feel, I guess.
Also, the gameplay animation looks very juttery, with no transition animation from one movement to the next... I think Blizzard has never really cared for that kind of attention to detail (preferring to just make each individual animation quite well done, but saying "meh" to transitions between those animations) - but this is particularly noticeable with the movements of this class...
But yeah, I'll miss the darker look that Diablo 2 had, and got away with since it was 2D. Now that it's 3D parents will be all up in Blizzard's wazoo if they get an M rating for the game. : (
How can so many people complain about dual crossbows but say nothing of the Hundreds/Thousands of arrows/spears ect characters carried in the Diablo 2...was it dual crossbows that ruined your immersion? Did that finally tip the scale to make it unbeleivable? Im not a fan of wow but Blizzard makes quality and the game will be epic, hack n slash was never terribly deep, so its not like it takes much dumbing down to make it appeal to the masses.
the barbarian will eat this class alive !!!
Nice Class. Terrible Trailer. Compared with other movies from Blizzard this one seems to have been made in a hurry. Unpolished and annoying oneliners.. But doesn't matter. Gameplay looks awesome and that's what counts :)
The only trouble I have with the trailer is the iron-shod high heels. Don't get me wrong. High heels? I'm a fan. They just seem conspicuously out of place -- moreso than usual in games. Maybe they're part of a class attack? Stiletto Kick?
I don't like it. The dialogue sucks, the music is forgettable (D1 and D2 music was awesome), the combat choreography is boring, and I slowly get the feeling that by now there are more characters and races with glowing eyes in fantasy games, than with normal eyes. Gah...
Love it! wtg Blizz!
The more videos and details we get from Blizzard the more we see how they desecrate the Diablo franchise into a WoW isometric view.
wait so we got a fighter whit armor but has boots whit heels ahahahhaahha
I would just like to say, how sad the Blizzard hating is on this site. Blizzard has the biggest MMO bc they are the only company to make an entertaining MMO (I have played about every one ever made). All you people who immediately have to hate anything Blizzard, have fun with your second rate crappy little game that you will play with barely enough people to keep it functioning! lol
And another thing, the first two Diablo games were ok for their time, but I never really got into them. I found them to be VERY bland. Little more than a distracting click fest. The graphics, animations, and sounds were not that great. I think some people just have selective memories. The new game actually has me somewhat interested.
Reminds of Starcraft 2 ... outdated and unoriginal.
They got the sound right, those who say not simply dont remember the old D1 and 2. its a bit more.. modern then I like but then its a new market out there.
Story was fine, gave a nice recall on the end to d2's into movie somehow.
Overall its a good trailer, as expected from Blizzard,, BUT it feels like this ''heroine'' is TRYING TOO HARD TO BE COOL. Its like instead of just kicking some demon ass (and thus proving to us in the process how uber she is), she keeps on **talking about how cool she is** (''ooo, im never gonna give up, im the huntress, i always have a choice'' bla bla).....
This class and the monk have to be so far my best picks, cant wait!
