Gamescom gets underway in Cologne in just over a week and this year Blizzard are holding another press conference on Wednesday 5th. It was a couple of years ago at Gamescom that Reaper of Souls was announced as the first expansion so can we expect another expansion announcement this year? There’s been plenty of rumours […]
Unlike the new and enjoyable Season Journey which is composed entirely of Achievements you’ll “earn” through the (more or less) normal course of play, each Season also has some Conquests. These are like super achievements, e-peen style, requiring special efforts and a lot of end game grinding to achieve. Conquests required some powerful characters to […]
Feminine Diablo Unveiled at BlizzconPosted 20 Oct 2011 by
We reported earlier the contents of this year’s Blizzcon goody bag and now a larger image of the front cover of the show floor map has surfaced (thanks popez). This image will also be the official poster for the event. Centre and front is a full frontal of Diablo and there is no getting away from it, those are some child-bearing hips ‘he’ has there.
There have been previous mutterings regarding Diablo’s gender. Back in 2009, also at Blizzcon, one of the Pay Per View broadcasts showed a model of Diablo for the official cinematic which looked decidedly feminine. Later, at this year’s Gamescom there was some street art organised by Blizzard which showed a very slim Diablo with obvious hips. For the most part, this was simply put down to the artist’s interpretation, but looking at this latest in-house piece of art, the street artist could well have been working from official concept art. More recently the portrait pictures from the beta show a Diablo with a very delicate jaw line (that’s a spoilerific page btw).
So, what’s the story here? Plot twist? Concept artist with a penchant for hips or too much oestrogen in the local water supply?
Dianablo? Sorry, that’s really the best I could come up with.
