The creators of Starcraft and Warcraft franchises unleashed the third sequel to its highly anticipated hack and slash RPG Diablo on May 15. With the game gaining huge success instantly, amazon.com reports that Blizzard’s new title has become the most pre-ordered title ever on PC on the online retailer.
In addition to the game itself, Blizzard has released a host of new other goodies to guide gamers through their play time. These include a complete Signature Series guide for Diablo III, currently retailing at $13.74. For those who would love to dig further into the lore of Diablo’s universe, Blizzard has also released the book ‘Diablo III: The Book Of Cain’, available at $21.
The Book of Cain serves a great purpose in telling the players about the universe of Diablo. It contains artwork from renowned artists such as Mark Gibbons, Brom and Jim Gurney. Furthermore, Diablo III headsets, mouse pads, keyboards and mice are also available from Steel series to help players get the best out of the game.
Diablo III brings back players to Sanctuary, where the evil from hell once again threatens mortals. The game brings five classes which includes the return of popular class ‘The Barbarian’. Players will also be able to take role of a Witch Doctor, Wizard, Demon Hunter and a Monk. All classes are unique and feature different game styles.
Blizzard has changed a lot with the game since its last part was released in 2001. Classes no longer depend on mana, instead they have their own unique energy sources that are either replenished over time or are earned by killing hordes of demons in the game.
Coming back from Diablo II are the followers who will follow the players throughout their journey to conquer the forces of evil. This time Blizzard has given players an opportunity to select different skills and get equipment for their followers in order to customize them for action.
The fantasy Role Playing Game has already broken numerous records which include the most pre-ordered game in the history of Blizzard Entertainment. If you haven’t got your copy of Diablo III yet, head on to amazon.com to get some amazing discounts on the products aforementioned.
