A fan artist by the name of Darkcrusader took one of Blizzard’s official pieces of Diablo 3 concept art and used the Unreal Development Kit and a few other tools to create a fully-functional 3D version of the level. The new level (presumably playable in Unreal) is virtually-identical to the original concept art, and looks fantastic.
Here’s the original concept art by Victor Lee, with a still from the 3D level below it. The designer released numerous images of the level, as well as a short video showing the camera swooping around the area, just to prove that it’s actually something in a game, and not just some very cool still images.
