    Blizzard has updated their online Story of Diablo. It summarizes the story up to this point (with D3-era DiabloWikiMetcons included) and takes the tale through events in Reaper of Souls. The RoS portion of the story begins on page 54, and should be useful for those of you who rushed through the Campaign Mode without really reading or listening, and have only played Adventure Mode since. *cough*

    Updated: The Story of Diablo. Here’s the last page of the book, which seems to provide some pretty clear foreshadowing to what we might see as the plot of the next Diablo 3 expansion:

    …And Tyrael wondered if his Nephalem allies, who had now bested champions of both Heavens and Hells, would one day fall to the same corruption that brought low even the greatest of the Archangels.

    We’ve speculated about that on the podcast, since it seemed the only place for the story to go. After besting all of the Demons (repeatedly) and taking out the strongest of the Angels… what’s left to fight other than our corrupted selves? (It’s a familiar trope in fiction, you know.)
