Since everyone is creatng some "Space" on websites for D3, we can assume someone told them "look, D3 is coming, but will will not announce anything till next years E3 or something" will they keep it 2D or will they make it 3D ala shadowbane? Which would YOU prefer?

I can't imagine they would go with 2D, I expect something along the lines of an item/action driven Guild Wars, to be honest.

It will most definitely be 3d, which makes me very sad:( You'll probably need a new computer to run it and it will look kind of square and akward like most 3-d games do when you get close to the characters.

By the time it comes out, everyone will have a new computer anyways...

I dont believe D3 will come out for some time
They wouldnt do anything to hamper WOW cashflows, after all everyone would expect a free D3 , not a pay by the month one.

Considering the latest developments and rumors, I really do believe now there will be a D3. Only it won't be until the heat around WoW is a bit cooled down - it would be bad business strategy to release it too soon and create a competition for WoW. So I don't expect a D3 until 2007, earliest the end of 2006.

To the question at hand: it would most likely be 3D. Actually, I don't know what to expect about a 3D version of D3 (hehe). I am sharing the worries of Chimaira a bit. Despite being 2D, I have always liked the graphics of the game because of their simplicity. I really don't know how a 3D environment will affect the gameplay and the interface. If it will be 3D, then I really hope it's going to be in the style of Neverwinter Nights, rather than some sort of 3d person view. Anyway, we'll see.

I most definetly believe it will be 3D, but my question is whether they'll include a single-player mode alongside the online mode, or simply go with only online. I personally would hope they'll include a single-player mode. There are sometimes when I just like to play alone :p

hahahaaaaaaa. Good one Rik :clap:

Anyway, releasing a bigbudgetgame 2D game now would be commercial suicide. If D3 ever gets released, it will be 3D. It"ll probably look like WoW a bit, only darker (just like d2 is darker than warcraft) <-- speculation.

Of course I have...well sort of. Dawn Of War, and Empire Earth 2...and when you zoom in on your little critters it just looks über cheesy. I kind of like the 3-d effect anyway but I like the current 2-d look much better. It just looks more lifelike, and with some better effects and higher resolution I'd take 2-d over 3-d any day.

This could of course also be due to my crappy graphics card...

Empire Earth2 and DoW are both RTS games. This is a new RPG: LINK
EA2 and DoW are rendering hundreds of units at the same time, so and RTS never has the same lvl of detail as an RPG

Sure, you are definately the right person to be dictating others about the forum rules... Please keep it up. After all, where would we be without white knights like you?
