Heroes Rise: 40% Unlocked

Moments ago the Heroes Rise promotional page passed the 40% completion mark and with it we get another Dev Diary, the third in the series. This short clip covers “the biggest challenges going into the Diablo III testing and localization phases.” The video again features Jay Wilson, Christian Lichtner, and Jason Regier. As a recap, the first installment covered a brief status of development early in 2011, while the second covers polishing phases of the game and the internal alpha. This third installment covers similar grounds, delving more into the development process beyond the internal alpha.

Diablo 3 Now “Active” for WoW Annual Pass Accounts

A couple of readers mailed in this evening to let us know that Diablo III is now showing as “Active” on Battle.net accounts that purchased the World of Warcraft Annual Pass. You can’t download it or anything, but it’s hard not to take this as a SIGN OF RELEASE!!1! If you’re into that sort of thing.

Diablo 3 Release Date Announcement Coming Next Week…?

Diablo.IncGamers.com was the first place on and offline to announce Diablo III (Rush boldly did it the night before the official reveal once snippets of  info started leaking on to the Net), back in June 2008. At that time we *knew* it was coming; it was not a guess. We’re not as certain about this prediction, which is why it’s classed as a RUMOUR, but various inside sources have given us strong hints that next Monday, March 5th, should be a very interesting day for Diablo III news.

No Diablo 3 Beta Patch Before the Weekend

Update: It has been confirmed that they will be delaying the patch to either Saturday or Sunday.

To ensure that all systems and changes included in Beta Patch 13 are working properly, we’ve decided to take some extra time to continue internal testing. As a result, we will not be releasing Beta Patch 13 today. We will, however, be working through the weekend and look forward to delivering the patch on either Saturday or Sunday.

Bashiok: Update on Runestones/Patch Coming “Soon”

The progress report on runestones has yet to be released to the public. In the latest tweets and blue responses over the past weeks, we have seen a wide swath of verbiage taken from the Blizzard’s Lexicon of Patience to waylay our requests for this update. Many see this patch as the final hurdle for solidifying the release date, and it contains the last major iterations that have been stated to the community.

Bashiok´s Twittergeddon Transcript

Here comes the full transcript of Bashiok’s 1 hour twitter community chat.

@witwix Is there going to be as much incentive to sit around and MF for 14 hours at a time? Or is the end game plan more WoWesque?
It will be similar to D2, but emphasis is off boss runs and on exploring the world.

Bashiok’s Twittergeddon

Almost an hour ago, Bashiok tweeted that he would be trying to respond to as many Diablo 3 tweets as possible for an entire hour. And amazingly enough, he got to a LOT of them. The biggest problem, though, is that a lot of the people tweeting are either very new to the franchise, haven’t been following it very closely, or are overlooked when they are genuinely good questions. (Personally, I wished he had talked more about PvP and how that is looking now). If you tweet now, he’s still firing off some answers.

Vote: How do you feel about the new changes and delays?

After the long-awaited systems change info was revealed this morning, it was obvious we needed to run a vote about the topic. My first inclination was to ask which of the changes you guys liked best, but while looking over the comments on Battle.net, Facebook, in our forum, and especially the 150 175+ replies on the news post here, the fan discontent over the changes and the general state of D3’s development became very evident.

Bashiok – Jay’s Game System Updates Already in the Game

OK, so the news is out now and I’m sure you are all digesting things slowly. Obviously since the info update, many of you are thinking “oh noes! More delays!”. Bashiok wants to make sure that everyone knows that the changes you are reading about today are already implemented in the game. However, it does look like there is still work to be done as Bashiok points out and I’m sure we will get another systems update from Jay at some point, he certainly hinted at that in today’s post.
