Diablo III on Switch just got updated with a way better home screen icon. It doesn’t make the actual game better or anything, but on the other hand, maybe it also kind of does?
Other shows might be bigger, but every year Blizzcon brings out the absolute best in cosplay.
Why was the Diablo Immortal backlash so severe? Why didn’t Blizzard see it coming? Today on Kotaku Splitscreen, we discuss.
When Blizzard’s sole Diablo announcement at this year’s BlizzCon turned out to be a game for phones, it set off a firestorm of angry reactions from fans who had hoped for a new Diablo on PC. But what about Diablo 4?
Yesterday, during a BlizzCon Q&A shortly after the announcement of mobile game Diablo Immortal, a fan in a red shirt approached the mic. “Just was wondering,” he said in a deadpan tone, “is this an out-of-season April Fool’s joke?” The audience cheered. It was just the beginning of a very long weekend for Blizzard.…
At first glance, the upcoming mobile game Diablo Immortal looks a lot like Diablo III. Similar classes, similar environments, similar art, similar abilities. In the demo I played at BlizzCon, however, much of the resemblance was only skin deep.
If you were hoping for Diablo 4, you’re going to have to wait a while longer. The next Diablo game is Diablo Immortal, announced today at BlizzCon, and it’s a phone game that Blizzard says is “coming soon.”
It’s official: Diablo III is coming to Switch. Later this year, you’ll be able to cosplay as Ganondorf from Legend of Zelda and kick the crap out of Diablo from Diablo. It’s the first Blizzard game on a Nintendo platform in 15 years, but fortunately, Blizzard had help.
Here’s the official trailer for Diablo III on Switch, which leaked yesterday. It’s out this fall for $60 and includes all of the downloadable content Blizzard has released so far.
The day that was prophesied by a light switch is finally upon us: Diablo III is coming to Nintendo Switch this year.
Things have been slow in Diablo-land for the past few years, but that’s likely going to change soon, with Blizzard teasing on Twitter today that it has some Diablo projects in the works. One of them, we believe, is Diablo III Switch.
If not for a few oversights on Blizzard’s part, the original Diablo’s source code would likely be lost to time. However, thanks to those oversights and some serious dedication from one coder, people can now see (and tinker around with) what makes Diablo tick.
This week, action-RPG Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr came out of Early Access on Steam, the latest in a long line of incomprehensibly titled games inspired by the Warhammer miniatures series. It’s a decent spin on the kill/loot/explore formula popularized by Diablo, but what it’s especially good at is making…
Last year’s BlizzCon was one of the higlights of the cosplay calendar. BlizzCon 2017 was no different.
A few years back, games artist Toby Lewin had an image he drew for a Blizzard contest (above) go viral. You see it all over the internet these days, from posters to mouse pads, but this week it turned up in the real world on...a war memorial in the Ukranian capital Kiev.
This is an excerpt from my upcoming book, BLOOD, SWEAT, AND PIXELS, which comes out on September 5 and tells the stories behind 10 different games including Diablo III, Uncharted 4, and Star Wars 1313. You can pre-order the book at your favorite bookstore.
Anime Expo is usually home to some of the year’s best cosplay, and 2017 was no exception. While we’ll be providing a bigger roundup of the whole show next week, I wanted to go early with this incredible shoot featuring a Nintendo x Diablo crossover.
About an hour into taking Diablo 3’s new Necromancer class for a spin, I encountered a turgid, hulking monster called a Grotesque. I had already massacred several of the small bats preceding it, and by using my class ability Corpse Explosion, I did enough damage to the Grotesque for it to inflate and rupture. Out of…
Today, Diablo 3 added a Necromancer class to its morbid ranks. It’s a blast—and literally. “Corpse Explosion,” a callback to Diablo 2, does exactly what it says. When a Necromancer explodes some corpses to kill a monster, and then explodes that monster’s corpse to kill worms it hosts, you know you’re playing Diablo.
