Blizzard has announced a preorder prize for the upcoming Diablo 3 Playstation 3 console game; a special in-game helm that can be worn from level 1, and grants an exp bonus to the user.
Wearable at level 1, the Infernal Helm confers a +EXP bonus to help you whip your new PlayStation® characters into tip-top shape. Plus, it looks sweet as hell (pun intended) on all five mortal heroes of Sanctuary—Witch Doctor, Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Wizard, and Monk. Keep in mind that the redeemable key for the Infernal Helm, which you will find in your preordered copy of Diablo III on launch day, will apply to all of your PS3™ characters, but will not transfer to any PC characters.
We’ll be announcing a launch date for Diablo III on the PS3™ as it gets closer. In the meantime, get your preorder lined up, and begin preparing your living room for the imminent arrival of your three closest demon-slaying friends.
You’re going to need a bigger couch.
This prize is for the Playstation version of the game; not something your current PC/Mac characters can use, and no, there’s still no release date. You have to kind of zoom in on the hat to make out the details, but it’s a sleek, elongated face covering thing, and there appear to be four little crystals in orbit around it.
Not that you’re going to much care how it looks in-game, if the exp bonus is good. I’ve worn the Cain’s Laurel helm on multiple new characters in the past, and I don’t even remember what color it is, much less whether or not I like the graphics.
