    Hopefully there are some members here that live in/near Germany and will visit. If not we'll have to use Youtube as a source for info and the official sites.

    Nice, we'll get some interesting (rather blurry) screens before Blizzcon... that's good to know...

    Re: D3 playable at gamescom 2010 !

    Blizzard has scheduled a press conference at gamescom 2010 in Cologne where a new feature in Diablo 3 is going to be presented to the audience. It's still highly classified what it's going to be.
    We'll get back to you about the details at pcgames.de on August, the 18th around 12:00 pm (CET), so all the Diablo 3 fans should make sure to check back then.

    Diablo 3 will be playable at gamescom 2010. It's uncertain if Diablo 3 is still going to ship in 2011 or rather 2012 - Blizzard maybe is going to comment on that at gamescom. The press conference with game director Jay Wilson also includes half an hour of Q&A, during which we'll try to get our hands on as much information as possible.

    The demo at gamescom is the version from 2009. Not that that'll put anyone off playing it, point is, it'll not demo anything we don't already know inside out. Obviously saving the best stuff for Blizzcon.

    They'll probably use the same demo for both events, or so I assume.

    I'm more excited about this new feature they are so secretive about.

    Re: D3 playable at gamescom 2010 !

    Yeah, would be pointless to use two different demos in such a short time span.

    Kind of disappointing since I figured the reason they would demo something to begin with was because they made a new one.

    I don't mind waiting for new gameplay footage till Blizzcon but would like something new to read about on the forums other than the usual cryptic clues given out by the blues, not long now till gamescon.

    I don't think anything spectacular will be revealed at Gamescom.
    They'll save that for the next Blizzcon in October.

    And even then, the focus of both events will probably be on the next WoW Expansion.
    One can always hope ofcourse and something new is better than nothing.

    I think they'll reveal something because it's pretty much all Europeans will get this year, provided there is no WWI (there was none last year, I believe). Throwing us a bone, so to speak.

    Re: D3 playable at gamescom 2010 !

    Blizzard has a huge office complex in Austin. It's where most of their CS jobs are, most of which work on WoW. So if they're not going to bring a new demo of D3 5 miles to their own Warcraft 3 tournament, it seems pretty unlikely they'll send one to Gamescom, a few days earlier. Unfortunately.

    On the slightly brighter side, this must mean that there's a ton of new stuff in the Blizzcon demo, if they're not willing to give out any kind of preview of it 2 months earlier.

    I'm under the impression that BlizzCon will be feature Diablo III prominently. Unfortunately, I think Flux's reasoning about the exclusion of a demo from Gamescom. It will be interesting to observe how Blizzard manages the release of information throughout "convention season" and BlizzCon. Will the infamous Diablo drought return post-BC?
