So pouty, pasty, and tortured!
I had a chance to play a couple of sessions through the Diablo 3 demo at Blizzcon, and here’s a quick report.
The demo (up in the press room, at least) is single player only, with a non-random scenario. It’s a Greater Rift, level 2, with a level 70 (male) Necromancer as the only playable character.
I don’t think Blizzard considered it when designing the Greater Rift feature, but it’s essentially perfect for their needs when setting up a playable demo. For demos they want you using a basic and premade character, they have to limit the time per session, they don’t want players wasting time fiddling around with the interface, inventory, skills, trying to respec, etc. In the old days they had to lock off normal game features, but now in D3 they can just set up a Grift session and there you are. No access to inventory, skills, already in a dungeon with a built-in time duration, etc.
