BlizzCon wrapped up this past weekend, but not before new trailers for upcoming games arrived to thrill fans.

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.

When will the game arrive? We got our first teaser waaaaay back in 2008, and while it looks like Diablo 3 will arrive next year, it really depends on when Blizzard is satisfied with the results.

    I got to play the first 10 levels in Beta. It’s fun. If you liked the other 2 you will like this one. I wish I was able to play the whole game. Guess I have to wait like everyone else.

    Trust Blizzard to see the uncanny valley and leap over it. If the game play is 1/10 that beautiful, I’m going to have to get a new monitor.

    Maybe I don’t need to be addicted to grinding for drops anymore. It’s been a refreshing change, this whole “playing other games where “getting gear” isn’t the main reason to play” thing. ^_^

    I’ve already pre-ordered my Collector’s Edition. I will most definitely be spending all waking hours to destroying the minions of Diablo until every class has beaten him.
