The rumors are now true! Blizzard finally announces the development of Diablo 3! I just finished watching the sample game trailer - it rocks! The trailer starts out in a dungeon where a barbarian has to find Cain (a character from Diablo 1 & 2). As the barbarian moves through the water filled dungeon you could see the great water effects and the incoming demon horde charging the barbarian! The barbarin quickly dispatches the demons with impunity and with stunning character animation fluidity! Blizzard really ups the notch with a very stunning physics engine throughout the fight - demons flying everywhere after getting hacked it bits!
The next bit of the video showcases the new character class available in Diablo 3, the witch doctor! The witch doctor has some really cool spells like a locust swarm that eats enemies alive, some pets and a fire spell - all of these showcasing another string of cool 3d and lighting effects!
