Ninja Gameplay Video of the Crusader from Gamescom

At past Blizzcons and other events we’ve seen a fair amount of surreptitiously recorded ninja gameplay video of the game in action. None such has appeared yet from Gamescom, which might attest to more vigilance from the booth staff, less subterfuge from the attendees, or just bad luck/slow upload times.

In any event, we’ve got some now, with a good minute of video showing the DiabloWikiCrusader battling his way along a few passageways in Westmarch. The image quality isn’t great, but you get a sense of how the class moves; he looks bigger than a Barb or a Monk, with his huge shield held out from his body like a wall of protection. Very splashy spell graphics as well, with a ton of special effects raining destruction down upon his enemies.

Thanks to Orion for the tip, and if you guys see other ninja gameplay videos from the show, let us know and we’ll news them up for all to see.

  1. Looks very smooth and polished…I love Monster Power, but sometimes i miss how calm and slow (in a good way) the game can be without the massive ammount of monsters from MP1+.

  2. If he got busted than how come the video is still uploaded to YT, why is his/her memorycard not wiped… I think they’ll tell you to stop but ‘secretively’ want you to upload it as fast as possible 😉

    • They have “no pics/video” signs up around the demos always, but they don’t treat it like a police state with searches or anything. Testers aren’t signing NDAs. They just don’t want people seeing low-quality images and forming incorrect impressions.

  3. Weren’t the characters from gamescon demo at level 40?
    Cause that one is sporting a nephalem stack…

    • I think it’s actually 2 stacks. Hard to read in the video, but if you freeze and peer closely, I think there’s a #2 on the lower right corner of the icon.

      Hopefully when we get some decent hands-on reports this sort of simple thing will be clarified.

  4. Wich was something long asked for in d3 official forums, make the stacks start from level 1.

  5. SO we know that you get NV stacks before lvl 60, you get smart loot and all that in D3X. And we will get all of it in a free patch in D3C. Question is, do we have to wait for D3X to launch to get those god damn patches we were promised half a year ago?

    • We don’t know the players will get any of those things in D3X. They showed many features before D3C that failed to make it to release for one reason or another. We’re just seeing where they are with RoS.
