The rumors have been flying on the release date of Diablo III, with it all aiming towards April. The date has still yet to be announced but the April release window is looking almost dead on since Blizzard is putting PvP on hold.
Retail stores and some video game websites have been posting release dates for the highly anticipated Diablo 3. Stores like Best Buy have Diablo 3 posted for a February 1st release date, while others have the game posted for February 3rd. Everyone has still been kept in the dark on what the exact date that Blizzard is deciding to drop Diablo 3 on us, but I'm sure which ever day it is in 2012, Deckard Kain will ask you to stay a while and listen.
It's been quite some time since I've played Diablo, and jumping straight back into the Diablo world it felt like like I was playing Diablo 2 with a lot of upgrades. The graphics of the game have been upgraded to today's standards and the music seems as though they took it right out of Diablo 2, polished it so it's nice and shiny and stuck it directly into Diablo 3. Blizzard has done great job at first glance at capturing the feel and sounds of the Diablo franchise, but how does it play?
Diablo 3 will have tons of new surprises laying in wait for players, and one big one will be Auction House transactions using real life money. Yes, you heard me correctly. Real money can be used in transactions at the auction house.
