The dark world of Sanctuary was saved from the demons Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal two decades prior by a group of unnamed heroes in Diablo II. These demons roamed the world of Sanctuary in order to capture and enslave all of humanity. Archangel Tyrael rewarded the heroes after having survived the onslaught of the armies of Burning Hells, but World Stone which protected the inhabitants of Sanctuary has been destroyed and evil once again wanders through Tristram. Now it is all up to the next generation of heroes in Diablo III to fight the forces of evil that now threaten Sanctuary.
There are five distinct character classes in Diablo III through which players can play and gather items of power, special abilities and spells as they explore both the new and familiar parts of Sanctuary and enter combat with demons. The plot in Diablo III revolves around the Black Soulstone and the Lesser Evils and Belial. The world of Sanctuary is now very different ever since the destruction of World Stone in Diablo II and is now divided into two continents with many small islands.
The game is the next offering from Blizzard Entertainment. Like the previous game in the series, multiplayer gaming is facilitated here in Diablo III as well, and players can access this by going to battle.net. Via this, players can easily toggle between, drop out and come back into cooperative player sessions with others.
The game promises extremely varied and interesting experiences by way of an enhanced quest system that includes class-specific quests and main storyline quests, along with proposed random level and encounter generators; and all this is in addition to the static levels of the game.
The game is slated to be released on May 15, 2012, and promises endless engaging gameplay to its fans.
